November 26, 2013 — VuComp Inc. announced an agreement with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging to include VuComp’s M-Vu CAD, the first mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) product clinically proven in a pivotal reader study, as companion technology for Konica Minolta’s high-resolution Regius Mammography systems. The agreement provides VuComp the ability to market its CAD system through Konica Minolta’s U.S. distribution network.
While mammography CAD systems have been U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved since 1998, FDA guidelines now recommend comprehensive reader studies demonstrating that radiologists are more effective using the CAD. M-Vu CAD is the first product to meet this FDA standard for proving effectiveness, receiving FDA approval for digital mammography in October, 2012.
