iCAD Announces Educational Initiatives on New Prostate Imaging Technologies

iCAD's VividLook


September 16, 2009 - iCAD Inc. will host a series of educational events designed for radiologists, urologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, technologists and other referring physicians who diagnose and treat patients with prostate cancer.

Two webinars, entitled “Prostate MRI – A Paradigm Shift in Prostate Cancer Diagnosis and Management” will focus on how MRI combined with an advanced quantitative image analysis software solution, (iCAD’s VividLook), supports improved prostate cancer management. The course will include clinical case reviews that will demonstrate prostate cancer detection in patients with previously negative prostate biopsy and rising PSA, as well as the use of dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI and Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) to monitor prostate cancer response to radiation therapy.

They will be held on:
· October 15, 2009, at noon ET, with Dr. François Cornud, diagnostic and interventional radiologist at the Centre d’Imagerie Tourville
· November 10, 2009, at 3 pm ET, with Dr. Russell Low, medical director at Sharp and Children’s MRI Center and Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

In addition, a non-RSNA satellite symposium will be held on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 7am CT at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, room CC24BC. The session, “How quantitative image analysis CAD and MRI play an integral role in prostate cancer programs including pre-biopsy guidance, treatment planning, active surveillance and therapy response monitoring,” will include presentations by clinical experts, Dr. Cornud and Dr. Low. Specific focus areas include how DCE MRI in conjunction with other MRI imaging techniques can improve the sensitivity and specificity of prostate cancer localization and detection as compared to current imaging practices. Specific case examples will be shared, including how DCE MRI and CAD support improved treatment planning for patients undergoing Cyberknife therapy.
