FDA Approves iCAD’s SecondLook Digital for Use with Fuji’s Digital Mammography System

April 7, 2008 - iCAD Inc.’s SecondLook Digital Computer-Aided Detection system for mammography received FDA approval for sale with Fujifilm's Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm) systems.

SecondLook Digital for FCRm is one of the first CAD products approved and available in the U.S. for use with computer radiography (CR).

“The addition of CAD functionality to CR digital mammography takes screening and diagnostic capabilities to an unprecedented level,” said Rachel Brem, M.D., director of breast imaging and interventional care at the George Washington University Hospital. “CAD improves upon existing mammography systems by providing an ability to find overlooked cancers, helping the radiologist find cancer earlier and ultimately improve the level of care for every patient.”

“iCAD's SecondLook Digital system coupled with the Fuji CR Mammography system will improve our ability to detect potentially malignant calcifications and masses and we expect that it will increase our overall standard of care,” said Jeffrey Mendel, M.D., chairman of radiology at Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston, MA. “Additionally, seamless integration of iCAD’s product with our PACS system will improve the efficiency of our reading and our overall digital workflow.”
