  • Solis Mammography Adopts iCAD’s ProFound AI Platform Powered by Panorama with Short-Term Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Solution

    iCAD ProFound AI for 3D Mammography and ProFound AI Risk will be deployed to 100 percent of Solis Mammography’s installed base, a majority of which are Hologic systems. The agreement is not exclusive. The agreement underscores promise of shifting mammography from age-based screening paradigm to a risk-adjusted precision screening paradigm personalized for every woman. ProFound AI, which aids in the detection of breast cancer in 3D mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), became the first software of its kind to be FDA-cleared in December 2018. The technology rapidly and accurately analyzes each DBT image, or slice, and provides radiologists with key information, such as Certainty of Finding lesion and Case Scores, which assists in clinical decision-making and improving reading efficiency. *Delivers clinically proven improvements in sensitivity, specificity, time-savings and recall rates. This leads to earlier breast cancer detection and reduced rate of false positive *ProFound AI Risk is the only commercially available risk assessment solution to provide a short term vs. long term risk of developing breast cancer based solely on a screening mammogram. *ProFound AI for DBT is proven to curtail workflow challenges substantially by reducing radiologists’ reading time by 52.7%, thereby reducing by half the amount of time it takes radiologists to read 3D mammography datasets.

  • Research reveals portable digital chest drainage systems could help minimise spread of COVID-19

    Pioneering research conducted by a team of thoracic consultants from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – home to one of the largest lung cancer practices in the UK – has revealed digital chest drains generate and distribute less aerosol generated particles compared to traditional water seal systems. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic there was limited evidence about the spread of COVID-19 via chest drains which led to uncertainty within the thoracic community about the best medical device to use. Researchers reviewed three different types of chest drainage systems – single chamber, 3 compartment wet-dry suction, and digital drainage system. Results showed that the 3-compartment wet-dry suction system and the digital drainage system did not generate any identifiable aerosolised particles at any of the air leak or drain output volumes considered. Medela’s Thopaz+, a digital chest drainage, and monitoring system can effectively retain pathogen-sized particles and prevent them from subsequently exiting to the environment via the exhaust. Fully supported by clinical evidence from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Thopax+ is proven to improve outcomes, ensuring a safe and continuous drainage independent of a wall vacuum to provide safer patient care while minimising the risk of cross-contamination.
