Confirma Puts CAD for Breast MRI Education Online

May 10, 2007 – Confirma, a developer of computer-aided-detection (CAD) for breast MRI, announced that it has launched a new educational series of online discussions and case reviews of breast MRI analysis and interpretation with the company’s CADstream system to provide a tool that meet the increasing need for education in diagnostic and interventional breast MRI studies.
In the program, clinicians present cases in which, for example, they use breast MRI in screening of high-risk women, disease staging, examination of the contralateral breast and monitoring of treatment effectiveness.
The next review will take place on May 22, 2007 and will be presented by Dr. David Gruen, Norwalk Radiology Center, Norwalk, CT.
Dr. Gruen is the medical director of The Suite for Women’s Imaging at Norwalk, the largest outpatient women’s imaging center of its kind in Southern Connecticut.
“There is no way we could analyze five to ten breast MRI cases per day in a timely manner, without using CAD to streamline data analysis and reporting,” Dr. Gruen explained. “CAD helps us manage the thousands of images a breast MRI study can produce, while standardizing the evaluation process.” Dr. Gruen reports that his practice’s false positive rate has decreased since implementing CADstream and the rate of positive biopsies has increased.
