October 19, 2010 — AccuDetect computer-aided detection (CAD) software has received CE (Conformite Europeenne) mark in the European Union. Its sister product, AccuDetect Galileo CAD software, also obtained the CE mark recently. AccuDetect is designed to help radiologists in the early detection of hard-to-find breast cancers.
AccuDetect Galileo uses the integration of two independent CAD systems to create a solution with improved lesion detection rates and low false marks. Both AccuDetect Galileo and AccuDetect CAD perform a computerized second read of mammography images to help radiologists confirm that a suspicious area requires further investigation.
AccuDetect CAD uses a different methodology to achieve high sensitivity and low false positive rates through the integration of several complementary algorithms and a sophisticated voting scheme within a single CAD system. The two products complement each other and target unique customers and distribution channels.
