Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA

July 26, 2019 — Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured breast reporting and MQSA management tools at the 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) annual meeting, July 21-24 in Aurora, Colo. The company’s various tools are designed to improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations.

Ikonopedia has recently initiated and completed installations across a broad range of breast imaging practices, from large radiology groups to mobile mammography providers and private practice physicians. Recent sales and installations include such sites as Valley Imaging Center in Wasilla, Alaska; Maui Medical Group of Wailuku, Hawaii; and Marshfield Clinic in Eau Claire, Wis. 

Introduced earlier this year, the Combined Reporting package automatically combines results from any combination of mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), biopsy and post-biopsy mammograms to produce a single, coherent clinical report for the referring physician. Used in conjunction with the Closed-Loop Resolution Manager, the system focuses on actionable items and monitors patients to full resolution of all clinical concerns — saving valuable time for the radiologist and staff and maintaining patient safety. 

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 Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS)-compliant language and automate many time-consuming processes. Ikonopedia makes it possible to eliminate laterality errors, automatically choose exam-appropriate patient letters and pull forward findings from past exams, along with many other time-saving features. 

To expand access to quality breast healthcare, Ikonopedia also recently introduced an integrated risk assessment tool, now available in any language. The company also provides users with the first-ever web-based version of the Tyrer-Cuzick Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool. Risk data is used to create alerts for the radiologist, populate the clinical section of the report and automatically update the patient letter. A high-risk patient alert identifies patients with a 20 percent or greater lifetime risk and information about the score is instantly viewable.

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
