CAD with FFMD Shows High Sensitivity to Detect Early-Stage Breast Cancers

February 20, 2009 - iCAD Inc. said today peer-reviewed data on its SecondLook computer-aided detection (CAD) technology, published in the February issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology, included 123 cancers detected with full-field digital mammography (FFDM).

The article, “Detection of Breast Cancer with Full-Field Digital Mammography and Computer-Aided Detection,” by Juliette The, M.D. and Kathy Schilling, M.D., found the following:

- CAD with FFDM showed a high sensitivity in identifying cancers

- The SecondLook CAD correctly marked 94 percent of biopsy-proven cancers

- The sensitivity of iCAD’s SecondLook CAD was not dependent on the size of the tumor; it was equally accurate with small and large lesions

“Our experience with the SecondLook CAD has been quite positive,” said Dr. The, radiologist at Boca Raton Community Hospital in Boca Raton, FL. “I am pleased with its ease-of-use and ability to help radiologists find more cancers, at an earlier stage. Coupled with full-field digital mammography, which has been shown to be more accurate in certain populations of women, we feel that CAD is an important tool that highlights the areas of a mammogram warranting closer inspection.”

SecondLook CAD for digital mammography was designed and developed using thousands of cancer and normal studies. SecondLook Digital is optimized for leading digital mammography systems including GE Healthcare, Siemens Medical Systems, Fujifilm Medical Systems, IMS Giotto, Agfa Healthcare and Sectra. In addition, iCAD’s SecondLook Digital provides flexible Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) connectivity solution enabling universal compatibility with leading Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) and Review Workstations.
