Densitas Breast Density Assessment Software Joins Nuance AI Marketplace

Partnership will provide access to artificial intelligence-powered breast density assessment to Nuance’s nationwide network of radiologists

Densitas Breast Density Assessment Software Joins Nuance AI Marketplace

October 21, 2019 — Densitas Inc. announced that its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared densitas densityai breast density assessment software will be available on the Nuance AI Marketplace. The company said the marketplace provides access to more than 70 percent of all radiologists across the largest network of connected healthcare facilities in the U.S.

Densitas densityai delivers fully automated, standardized and reproducible breast density assessments from standard DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) clinical use images. Density assessments can be incorporated into risk models that evaluate patient-specific breast cancer risk. The artificial intelligence (AI)-powered densitas densityai solution is specifically designed to align with how the visual cortex processes breast images when radiologists visualize mammograms, and rapidly generates reproducible and standardized breast density assessments that line up with the American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System) BI-RADS 5th ed. Atlas guidance on interpreting breast density from clinical use mammograms. Densitas recently announced that densitas densityai has been selected for use in a major breast screening trial in Germany.

"AI can play an important supporting role for radiologists by automating routine, time-consuming, subjective and fatiguing tasks so that they can focus on more challenging interpretive tasks," said Woojin Kim, M.D., chief medical information officer at the Healthcare Division of Nuance Communications. "What sets densitas densityai apart is that it has been thoughtfully designed to process routinely archived mammograms so that breast density assessments can be obtained from historical studies when comparing current with prior exams.  What I find compelling is that the density results are deeply embedded in the reporting workflow to deliver important information to radiologists at the time of interpretation while automatically populating the report."
