iCAD, ACR Image Metrix Team Initiate Colon CAD Clinical Study

June 20, 2008 — iCAD Inc. said it has initiated a clinical study for Colon CAD, its virtual colonoscopy CAD product, in partnership with ACR Image Metrix, a subsidiary of the American College of Radiology (ACR).

iCAD and ACR Image Metrix, having completed the development portion of the study, are collaborating on study execution including a multi-reader, multi-case (MRMC) clinical study designed to assess the impact of Colon CAD on the accuracy of interpreting CT Colonography exams also known as virtual colonoscopies. The study will also assess the sensitivity of Colon CAD for detecting polyps and will measure the impact of iCAD’s CT Colon CAD product on interpretation and workflow.

Virtual colonoscopy offers patients a less invasive option to conventional colonic polyp detection techniques. According to the company, reviewing these images can be tedious and challenging because of the amount of information captured in a CT exam. ICAD’s colon CAD product uses sophisticated image processing analysis technology to identify polyps in images with the potential for streamlining the reading process and improving accuracy, productivity and workflow. The study, which will be managed and executed by ACR Image Metrix, will include up to 20 radiologists, is expected to take about six months to complete and will include the analysis of several hundred cases tested with virtual colonoscopy featuring Colon CAD.
