Medipattern Signs Breast CAD Deal with Long Island Radiology Associates

June 24, 2009 - The Medipattern Corp. reported that Long Island Radiology Associates (LIRA) has entered into a B-CAD-FOR-LIFE contract, in which B-CAD-FOR-LIFE will provide breast computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) to all seven of LIRA's facilities in the greater New York City area and on Long Island.

B-CAD-FOR-LIFE provides all of the separate components that are required to install, train, use and maintain B-CAD under one monthly service fee. Since its introduction in mid-February 2009, demand for this alternative, cost effective solution has steadily increased.

Current National Cancer Institute figures show that the breast cancer incidence rate for the two counties on Long Island are elevated by 8.5 percent to 11.7 percent higher than the U.S. national average(1). The practices on Long Island are operating in an environment where the odds are stacked against their patients and they strive to take full advantage of technology to help them find and correctly identify breast cancer earlier while it is more treatable.

The Medipattern Corporation will show B-CAD-FOR-LIFE at the following 2009 events:
- BIC (Breast Imaging Conference), September 4-5, 2009 in Nashville, Tenn., partnered with GE
- International Breast Symposium, October 1-4, 2009 in Chicago, Ill.
- RSNA (Radiological Society of North America), November 29 to December 3, 2009, Chicago, Ill.

(1) According to National Cancer Institute data, the U.S. national breast
cancer incidence rate is 127.8 per 100,000 patients. Nassau County
exceeds the U.S. national incidence rate by 10.9 cases per 100,000,
and Suffolk County exceeds it by 14.9 cases per 100,000.
