July 5, 2011 — iCAD Inc., provider of advanced image analysis and workflow solutions for the early identification of cancer, announced the commercial availability of its VeraLook computed tomography colonography (CTC) computer-aided detection (CAD) solution integrated into Vital Images’ products as a result of a strategic partnership agreement signed earlier this year.
This collaboration will provide clinicians with CAD tools for the review and analysis of CTC images and will enhance the speed and accuracy of cancer detection. iCAD’s advanced image analysis technologies enable healthcare professionals to better serve patients by identifying pathologies and pinpointing the most prevalent cancers earlier. Vital Images’ scalable solutions consist of advanced visualization tools, clinical applications and data management systems.
VeraLook is designed to detect and highlight potential polyps during CTC examinations. Extensive testing with radiologists has demonstrated that the use of VeraLook improved reader sensitivity to all colonic polyps in a statistically significant manner – particularly for smaller, more easily missed polyps and pre-cancerous polyps which can develop into malignancies over time. VeraLook has also demonstrated high stand-alone sensitivity to detecting polyps, while generating a low number of clinically acceptable false positive marks on CTC images.
