Currently pending CE Mark, ProFound AI technology for 2D mammography will also be previewed
iCAD, Inc., 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™, in the iCAD exhibition booth (Expo X1, Booth AI-17) during the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2019, the second-largest radiological meeting in the world. Held by the European Society of Radiology, the conference will take place February 27-March 3, 2019, in Vienna, Austria.
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.
“With growing global demand for cancer detection and workflow solutions built on the latest advances in deep-learning, we are thrilled to demonstrate the unrivaled capabilities of our ProFound AI solution, which is clinically proven to help clinicians detect more cancers, decrease false positives and reduce recalls and reading time,” said Stacey Stevens, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer at iCAD. “ProFound AI offers tremendous benefits to radiologists and their patients in identifying cancer earlier. We look forward to expanding the unique capabilities of our algorithm through new application areas, including breast cancer risk prediction, in the future.”
Complementing ProFound AI for DBT, iCAD will also preview ProFound AI for 2D mammography, which is currently pending CE mark. In addition, iCAD will lead two clinical presentations during the conference and host an event entitled, “AI After Dark.”
