Medipattern Expands B-CAD Line with 7 New Solutions

The Medipattern Corp. announced seven new B-CAD products: six versions of B-CAD for breast ultrasound imaging, including B-CAD 1.2.1 and B-CAD 2.2 and one version for breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).

B-CAD 1.2.1 for breast ultrasound imaging is now available for the U.S. market in a wide range of formats ideal for those customers who either have PACS or who are new to the PACS environment. The turn-key solution includes a DICOM-network-ready PC with a B-CAD viewer and CAD reporting system, ideal for those facilities just starting to work in a PACS environment. For those facilities that have invested in a large number of workstations, 1.2.1 is available in a software format for loading onto existing equipment.

B-CAD 2.2 for breast ultrasound imaging is available in two formats: as a software product intended for Medipattern’s resellers to load onto workstations and as a plug-in module for the Sectra IDS5 workstation. B-CAD 2.2 electronically analyzes breast masses using all of the American College of Radiology’s BI-RADS (Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System) feature categories: size, shape, orientation, margin, lesion boundary, echo pattern, post-acoustic features and calcification in masses. Version 2.2 reportedly gathers all of the information required to track multiple lesions and completes the imaging procedure by automatically documenting the results in a pre-formatted report.
