November 23, 2016 — Parascript will participate in the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2016), held Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago. The company will provide demonstrations of its AccuDetect Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) for Mammography.

Parascript AccuDetect CAD uses multiple independent cancer detection algorithms and a patented voting methodology to combine its findings. Comparing the results of the multiple image recognition processes allows for improved sensitivity and reduced false-positive rates, resulting in precise CAD markings for areas of interest.

Hospitals throughout the country have commented on AccuDetect’s rapid processing capabilities. The software processes images significantly faster than the top competition, according to Parascript, with a processing time of just 11 seconds per image, and 45 seconds per four-view study. The average CAD system takes 30 seconds or more to process a single image. “It is amazing how much quicker our team can process these images,” said Todd Laing, director of radiology at Mena Regional Health System (MRHS).

AccuDetect CAD also supports early, more accurate detection, delivering high performance on dense and extremely dense breasts, according to a clinical study reported in Clinical Imaging.
