CAD Optimized for FFDM Systems Outside U.S.

December 30, 2008 - SecondLook Digital CAD, a computer-aided detection (CAD) technology by iCAD Inc. has been customized for use with the Planmed Nuance FFDM system is now available outside of the U.S., as iCAD drives its mammography strategy worldwide.

The CAD solution is optimized for the Planmed Nuance FFDM with high-performance a-Se detector.

“When analyzing iCAD´s SecondLook Digital CAD with Planmed Nuance Full Field Digital Mammography unit using selenium flat panel detector, it was found that the true positive findings detected at double reading of screening mammograms, were also marked accurately by CAD,” said Martti Pamilo, M.D., from Terveystalo, a private healthcare provider in Finland. “We are excited to see the results of the iCAD´s SecondLook Digital CAD integration to the Nuance FFDM system,“ said Vesa Mattila, Vice President of Planmed. “As CAD is becoming widely accepted in Europe, iCAD’s technology is an important addition to Planmed’s digital mammography systems and solutions”.

iCAD has received CE mark approval to market and sell its customized solution with Planmed Nuance mammography systems and units have been placed at Terveystalo Breast Cancer Screening Center in Helsinki, Finland.
