iCAD’s Breast MRI-Guided Planning Software Gets 510(k) Clearance

April 16, 2009 – iCAD Inc. today announced it has received 510(k) clearance for PrecisionPoint, the company’s interventional planning solution for breast MRI that can make biopsies easier and faster. PrecisionPoint will be offered as an integrated module within the company’s CADvue breast MRI image review software.

"We continue to improve upon our software offerings to provide clinicians increasingly accurate tools to aid in the detection of breast cancer. Our new PrecisionPoint software enables the user to pinpoint exactly where the biopsy is needed without the need to manually calculate the location and depth of the lesion,” said Rick Ortega, director of MRI programs at iCAD. “Faster and more reliable biopsies could help reduce the need for repeat exams and aid in quicker clinical decision making and treatment for patients."

In addition to the inclusion of PrecisionPoint, iCAD has made a number of other functional and interface improvements to the latest release of its CADvue software. CADvue is a complete MRI image review, analysis and BI-RADS compatible reporting solution that generates contrast enhancement curves, dynamic 3D images and quantification of key lesion parameters. CADvue’s automation of critical manual steps reduces the time required to generate curves and streamlines radiologists’ workflow and diagnosis. The latest CADvue software release includes:
- A compare function that enables radiologists to easily view multiple studies of the same patient;
- Enhancement of MIPs/3D renderings; and
- The addition of CADvue Lite, which gives the user the ability to export CADvue images onto a CD with a DICOM viewer to support improved communication between physicians.

“The addition of PrecisionPoint, coupled with the new features and product enhancements within CADvue, gives clinicians a complete set of tools to improve the review and analysis of breast MRI studies, as well as interventional planning,” said Ortega.
