October 4, 2010 — AccuDetect Galileo computer-aided detection (CAD) software for mammography has received CE (Conformité Européenne) mark.
CE mark confirms that a product has met European consumer safety, health and legal requirements and allows the product to be marketed throughout Europe. AccuDetect Galileo CAD software performs a computerized second read of mammography images to help radiologists confirm that a suspicious area requires further investigation.
AccuDetect Galileo uses the integration of two CAD systems to create a robust CAD solution with improved lesion detection rates and lower false marks over systems that do not apply voting methods. Parascript has also developed a solution that integrates several proprietary algorithms in a voting scheme within a single CAD system. AccuDetect Galileo has been installed at the Studio Medico Dr. Ceccaglia in Cesena, Italy. Studio Medico is a private women's health center offering breast imaging and the complete diagnosis in obstetrics and gynecology.
