March 15, 2017 — Parascript will exhibit at the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCoBC) 27th Conference, March 11-17, 2017, in Las Vegas, where the company will provide a demo of its AccuDetect Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) for Mammography.

Established in 1985, the National Consortium of Breast Centers is an interdisciplinary organization created to ensure quality patient care at breast centers through education, certification and interdisciplinary communication. The consortium is dedicated to improving the outcomes of breast care patients and assisting healthcare providers. In its 27th year, the conference brings together breast health professionals, technology experts and equipment specialists as well as drug and service providers to demonstrate the latest technology and breast care options available.

At NCoBC, Parascript will demonstrate AccuDetect CAD, which 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, according to Parascript. The company said AccuDetect CAD processes breast images significantly faster than the top competition 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.

“Having Parascript software sets us apart from what is going on around us. It lets people know that we are serious about taking care of their health and taking care of their families,” said Ronnie Dillion, director of radiology at the Ashley County Medical Center, Crossett, Ark.
