Company to Showcase Portfolio of Advanced Image Analysis Solutions for Early Detection of Cancer at ECR
NASHUA, N.H. - iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis and workflow solutions for the early identification of cancer, today announces the debut of its CT colonography (CTC) product at the European Society of Radiology’s annual meeting being held in Vienna, Austria, from March 6-10, 2009.
“iCAD is focused on helping clinicians find the most prevalent cancers by detecting areas of concern, improving workflow and providing early diagnosis for patients worldwide,” said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. “We have received great support from U.S. and European radiologists for our Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) products for digital and analog mammography as well as for breast and prostate MRI. This year we are expanding into CTC, also known as virtual colonoscopy, which we expect will have a positive impact on the number of patients undergoing this important diagnostic procedure.”
At ECR, iCAD will showcase several image analysis and clinical decision support solutions that work in combination with MRI and CT imaging modalities.
* SpectraLook™ and VividLook™ use innovative algorithms that generate colorized MRI images and enhancement curves on a pixel-by-pixel basis, providing radiologists with timely and efficient contrast kinetic assessment of lesions in the breast and prostate;
* CADvue™ is a complete MRI image review, analysis and BI-RADS® compatible reporting solution providing contrast enhancement curves, dynamic 3D images and quantification of key lesion parameters. CADvue’s automation of critical manual steps provides a significant reduction in the time required to generate curves, and it streamlines radiologists’ work flow and diagnosis;
* VeraLook™ is a revolutionary CAD solution for virtual colonoscopy (CTC) designed to aid radiologists in the detection of polyps during their review of CTC exams. Early clinical evidence suggests that CAD for CTC will enhance radiologists’ effectiveness in interpreting CTC studies.*
CTC employs cutting-edge, virtual reality technology to produce three-dimensional images that permit a thorough yet minimally invasive evaluation of the entire colorectal structure. iCAD’s VeraLook technology uses advanced algorithms to highlight suspicious polyps warranting closer review by a radiologist. In addition, VeraLook has the potential to reduce oversight errors that can occur during a virtual colonoscopy study review due to the large number of images generated by the CT system – often exceeding 1,000 images for a single patient.
CTC is an accurate alternative to colonoscopy for polyp detection. Since virtual colonoscopy requires no sedation, people receiving a CTC exam are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the examination. By incorporating CAD with virtual colonoscopy, radiologists have the option of using an image analysis tool that may aid them in detecting early-stage polyps as they are provided a list of CAD marks with potential polyp locations clearly marked for their inspection.
iCAD will also demonstrate elements of their next generation SecondLook Digital CAD solution currently under development. Advances shown will include performance improvements, software enhancements, and new “lesion metrics” that provide insight into CAD’s decision making process. iCAD’s industry-leading SecondLook Digital CAD system offers unique compatibility with industry leading Full-Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) solutions – both Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR). iCAD will also demonstrate customized CAD solutions for Agfa CR**, Sectra**, Philips CR** and Planmed** full-field digital mammography systems. SecondLook Digital CAD broadens and strengthens these solutions by providing enhanced detection and workflow capabilities.
All of these products will be featured at the iCAD booth, #536, located at Austria Center Vienna, Expo E.
