Ikonopedia Introduces Enhanced Breast Ultrasound Reporting Module at SBI

Ikonopedia Introduces Enhanced Breast Ultrasound Reporting Module at SBI

April 11, 2018 — Ikonopedia will introduce its next-generation breast ultrasound reporting module at the 2018 Society for Breast Imaging (SBI)/American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Symposium, April 12-15 in Las Vegas. The new and intuitive, Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS)-compliant interface is designed to streamline reporting for both screening and diagnostic exams acquired with both automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) and handheld ultrasound. Ikonopedia will demonstrate its complete suite of breast imaging structured reporting tools at SBI.   

The new module is based on the teaching files of A. Thomas Stavros, M.D., FACR, one of Ikonopedia's founders and author of the popular reference book Breast Ultrasound. The module guides breast imagers through the interpretive process for breast ultrasound exams with an intuitive lesion locator tool designed specifically for breast ultrasound.  It leverages Ikonopedia's proprietary reporting interface and lesion locator that has increased efficiency for breast imagers in other breast imaging modalities. All reports are guaranteed to be 100 percent BI-RADS language-compliant and current with the Atlas 5th Edition. Ikonopedia is fast without sacrificing accuracy while eliminating reporting errors common with dictation such as inappropriate BI-RADS, incomplete reports and wrong-side reporting, according to the company.

Stavros said the module’s situational-based display of only relative icons unclutters the screen, and makes reporting cleaner, faster and more efficient.

Ikonopedia is a structured breast reporting and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) management system designed to dramatically improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations.  All findings are saved as discrete data, which allows Ikonopedia to prevent errors, maintain BI-RADS-compliant language and automate many time-consuming processes. Ikonopedia also provides users with the first-ever web-based version of the Tyrer-Cuzick Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool. The tool is utilized to inform women about their lifetime risk of developing breast cancer and to help them make decisions about genetic testing and breast cancer screening options.

Ikonopedia's icon-based structured report automatically populates a back-end database from which turnkey performance audits can be generated by breast center employees. Stavros said establishing an audit for supplemental breast ultrasound screening is a critical first-step in developing a supplemental breast ultrasound screening program, but a step that many breast imagers are uncomfortable developing and initiating on their own.
