Loss and accuracy curves per epoch of the test and train set of the deep learning network. Best test loss occurred on epoch 482. At that epoch training loss and accuracy were 0.58 and 67.4%, respectively, and test loss and accuracy were 0.499 and 75.2%, respectively. (2019). Hinton B, Ma L, Mahmoudzadeh AP, Malkov S, Fan B, Greenwood H, et al. Deep learning networks find unique mammographic differences in previous negative mammograms between interval and screen-detected cancers: a case-case study.
