November 18, 2008 - Riverain Medical said its OnGuard Chest X-ray CAD system and the SoftView Enhanced Chest Imaging technology are commercially available in the European Union and Canada after being awarded CE marks and Canadian device licenses.
Riverain's OnGuard Chest X-ray CAD works in conjunction with the reading of standard digital chest X-rays to quickly and comprehensively identify solitary pulmonary nodules that may be early-stage lung cancer.
Riverain's SoftView technology reportedly creates an enhanced soft tissue image of the chest by suppressing bone on a standard chest X-ray. SoftView increases image clarity to help radiologists better detect and diagnose medical conditions such as pulmonary nodules, pneumothoraces and improperly placed lines and tubes.
