Confirma Previews CAD for Prostate MRI, Introduces New CAD for Breast MRI

December 1, 2007 - Confirma previewed its first version of CADstream improved analysis and reporting for prostate MRI and introduced the next generation of CADstream for breast MRI at RSNA 2007.

The prostate application is designed to offer radiologists comprehensive and clinically valuable tools for improved quality, standardization and efficiency in MRI study analysis and reporting.

The next generation of CADstream for breast MRI, which features a customizable, BI-RADS-centric user interface, improved morphology tools and patient monitoring capabilities.

Additionally, the company previewed the Access Breast Coil, which delivers high-quality diagnostic capability, flexible interventional access and optimized patient comfort.

Prostate MRI is a less invasive procedure using imaging, rather than biopsy first, and enables the physician to target areas of the body more precisely for biopsy planning.

Like Confirma’s CADstream for breast system, CADstream for prostate was designed to provide specific workflow-enhancing tools for prostate MRI analysis and reporting. The system includes image registration, alignment between contrast series and T2 images, and uptake and washout maps. The system also automatically creates multiplanar reformats, subtractions, MIPs and prostate-specific reports.

Acording to A. Joseph Borelli, Jr., M.D., president and medical director, MRI at Belfair in Bluffton, SC, “Prior to CADstream, it took me 45 minutes to interpret a breast MRI, which is now down to an average of 15 minutes. I am seeing similar efficiency improvements with CADstream for prostate.”

CADstream for breast automates analysis, reporting and interventional planning of studies and promotes standardization with the incorporation of the American College of Radiology's Breast Imaging Reporting and Database System (BI-RADS), which guides the breast cancer diagnostic routine and decision-making process. Confirma's next-generation version of CADstream for breast MRI, launched at the RSNA meeting, includes a new customizable BI-RADS-centric user interface that accommodates a variety of user experience levels. Additional CADstream enhancements include therapeutic monitoring capabilities, improved 3D renderings and tools for morphology reporting.

According to Confirma, its Access Breast Coil provides quality diagnostic capability with high signal-to-noise ratio. Its open design performs interventional procedures with both lateral and medial access. Patient comfort is improved with memory foam and positioning accessories for positioning during diagnostic and interventional breast MRI studies.
