NewsTechTrendsiCAD Releases Enhanced ProFound Detection Workstation Features to Streamline Mammogram Interpretation for Radiologists

Newly released capabilities — limiting the number of marks on a 3D view, color-coding lesion marks, and color-coding the ProFound Scorecard — enhance radiologists’ interpretability and efficiency

NASHUA, N.H., March 19, 2024 — iCAD, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICAD), a global leader in clinically proven AI-powered solutions that enable medical providers to accurately and reliably detect cancer earlier and improve patient outcomes, announced new, advanced workstation features for ProFound Detection for both 2D and 3D mammography in its latest V3 Service Pack update.

“We’re excited to introduce advanced workstation features for our flagship solution, ProFound Detection, aimed at further improving and facilitating radiologists’ interpretation of mammograms within their workstation,” said Dana Brown, President and CEO of iCAD. “With these new capabilities, such as limiting lesion marks to the three highest-scoring lesions, which can be color-coded based on lesion score, and providing color-coded ProFound Scorecards based on case score categories, along with options for fine-tuning based on a facility’s real-world data, we’re enhancing radiologists’ interpretability and efficiency in cancer detection.”

The new features for the ProFound Detection solution are designed to improve the readability of iCAD results through a configuration option to limit to three lesion marks visible on a workstation view displaying 3D images. This refinement ensures that radiologists can interpret the most critical information thereby streamlining the diagnostic process for more efficient decision-making.

The introduction of color-coded lesion marks and case scores on the ProFound Scorecard provides an intuitive visual aid, allowing radiologists to discern the suspicion level of detected abnormalities quickly. This color-coded system, based on cancer occurrence per screening population, offers a concise, comprehensive representation of the severity of detected lesions and the overall case, further aiding in accurate diagnoses and prioritization of cases.

Support for fine-tuning score ranges based on a facility’s own real-world data enables users to customize the detection system according to their specific clinical needs, enhancing performance and adaptability to varying patient populations.

“The progression of iCAD’s leading Breast Health AI for over 20 years represents our continuous improvement in technology and functionality, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to advancing cancer detection capabilities and improving patient outcomes,” continued Brown. “From the inception of iCAD’s 2D Detection in 2002, to the launch of 3D Detection V1.0 in 2016, followed by 3D V2.0 Detection in 2018, and V3.0 Detection in 2021, each version has pushed the boundaries of cancer detection solutions. Now, in 2024, the release of the V3 Detection Service Pack marks another milestone, representing a commitment to ongoing enhancement and ensuring that ProFound Detection remains at the forefront of early cancer detection solutions.”
