September 19, 2007 - The Medipattern Corp., developer of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) technologies for medical imaging recently announced the installation of its latest version of B-CAD.
B-CAD 1.2 for breast ultrasound imaging associates multiple views of the same breast lesion and can track multiple lesions for the same patient in one record. It performs CAD and electronically analyzes breast masses using the American College of Radiology (ACR) BI-RADS (Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System) feature categories and their descriptors to help increase accuracy and consistency.
Version 1.2 documents all of the information required to track multiple lesions and completes the procedure by automatically documenting the results.
B-CAD segments a lesion and automatically reviews key features to characterize it. B-CAD then uses radiologists’ input along with the BI-RADS feature category and descriptor checklists to generate a BI-RADS score for the lesion, providing consistency in results and making it possible to follow a benign lesion from visit to visit. Finally, B-CAD records all of the findings automatically and generates a structured report in natural language.
