iCAD Launches Next-Generation Mammography CAD Platform

PowerLook AMP offers unprecedented flexibility and superior digital CAD options

August 6, 2012 — iCAD Inc., a provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, announced the availability of the PowerLook advanced mammography platform (AMP), its next-generation mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) system. PowerLook AMP provides radiologists with the ability to customize their CAD solution to meet the needs of their individual work environment. The technology expands on iCAD’s SecondLook platform and is the platform upon which future breast imaging CAD offerings from iCAD will be built.

PowerLook AMP’s CAD metrics offer tissue and lesion characteristics to support the breast imager’s workflow. In addition, PowerLook AMP is the first product of its kind to integrate M?takina’s Volpara volumetric breast density assessment software that aids radiologists by standardizing their approach to breast density assessment. The system’s modular design gives radiologists the freedom to choose the products and functionality they need.

“PowerLook AMP is the next generation in digital mammography CAD, providing radiologists with a wide range of tools for disease detection and analysis. This extendable platform will provide radiologists the flexibility to meet their current needs while preparing their facility for future changes in breast imaging technology,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD. “By integrating M?takina’s breast density assessment tool with iCAD’s PowerLook AMP, we are offering radiologists a more comprehensive, objective measurement tool for breast density, which will help in the assessment of mammograms.”

“The launch of PowerLook AMP represents a considerable revenue opportunity for iCAD over time as we plan to market it as an upgrade to our installed base of more than 4,000 systems in the U.S.,” he added.

Included with PowerLook AMP is a multi-vendor CAD server that allows hospitals and imaging facilities to connect up to four mammography acquisition devices regardless of vendor. This reduces the need for separate CAD servers while lowering hardware and service costs. iCAD’s PowerLook AMP also provides the most powerful flexible DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) connectivity solution, enabling universal compatibility with leading PACS (picture archiving and communications system) and review workstations. Additional modules are expected to be released and integrated into PowerLook AMP in the future.
