December 19, 2018 — Breast imaging analytics company Densitas Inc. announced the signing of a new Alliance Partner Agreement with Blackford. This agreement gives Blackford the right to promote, market, sell, distribute and license densitasdensity directly via integration with the Blackford Platform. Work will now commence to integrate densitasdensity with the Blackford Platform. Densitas CEO Mohamed Abdolell said integrating with Blackford will shorten Densitas’ time to market and shorten the sales cycle.
The densitasdensity software provides an automated mechanism for quantifying and recording percent breast tissue density, and making it readily available to the radiologist. Beyond speeding and simplifying the process of quantifying breast density, densitasdensity standardizes the density measurement. This enables uniform application of risk-based stratification of screen-eligible women aimed at ensuring those who need more aggressive follow-up receive it, while those who do not need aggressive follow-up do not receive unnecessary imaging. Densitas said the software is unique because it assesses breast density using the routinely archived processed DICOM images that radiologists normally review, and therefore supports prospective and retrospective breast density measurement for clinical care and for research.
densitasdensity was demonstrated at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
