Company’s Latest, Deep-Learning, Cancer Detection Software Solution Recently Launched in U.S.
NASHUA, N.H., April 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iCAD, Inc. (ICAD), a global medical technology leader providing innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions, today announced that it will present its latest artificial intelligence software solution for digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), ProFound AI™, as well as its PowerLook Density Assessment software, in the iCAD exhibition booth #301 during the 2019 Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) Annual Symposium, the largest breast imaging conference in the world. Hosted by the SBI and the American College of Radiology, the conference will take place April 4-7, 2019, in Hollywood, Florida.
ProFound AI is a high-performance, deep-learning, cancer detection and workflow solution for DBT. This transformational technology delivers critical benefits to radiologists, their facilities and patients through the improvement of cancer detection rates by an average of 8 percent and a reduction in the rate of unnecessary patient recalls by an average of 7 percent. The technology is designed to detect malignant soft-tissue densities and calcifications and provides radiologists with the certainty of finding lesion and case scores. Since its U.S. launch in December 2018, ProFound AI has been adopted by a significant number of high-profile hospitals and imaging centers in all major geographic areas of the country, demonstrating the strong need for such revolutionary technology.
“We look forward to engaging with breast imaging professionals at the SBI Symposium to share our powerful ProFound AI solution that delivers vast improvements in clinical performance and workflow,” said Stacey Stevens, President of iCAD. “We are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received from customers who have been early adopters of this technology.”
“Enhanced breast cancer detection remains a critical healthcare initiative, as evidenced by the recently proposed regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requiring breast density reporting,” continued Ms. Stevens. “The new proposed regulations would enhance FDA’s ability to enforce mammography facilities’ compliance with breast density reporting standards. Importantly, iCAD’s PowerLook Density Assessment software is designed to standardize the assessment of breast density in 2D and 3D mammography. We believe this innovative technology could play an important role in healthcare facilities’ ability to adhere to the new proposed regulations from FDA.”
