VuComp M-Vu Breast Density Mammography Reporting Software Women's Health

March 21, 2014 — VuComp Inc. debuted its automated breast density measurement technology, M-Vu Breast Density, at NCoBC, March 15-19 in Las Vegas.

Clinical studies have shown that dense breasts can make breast cancer detection in a mammogram more difficult by potentially masking malignant masses. Because of this, radiologists classify breast density into four categories established by the American College of Radiology’s Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) standard.

M-Vu Breast Density automatically and rapidly evaluates by analyzing the structure and texture of the tissue, rather than simply estimating total fibroglandular volume. The algorithms quantify areas with a dense appearance that could hide cancer and convert this to categories corresponding to the recently updated BI-RADS standard. This exclusive approach using appearance-based analysis provides useful adjunctive information.
