Matakina Surpasses 100 Systems with Installation of Volpara Objective Breast Density Measurement Software at Rome Memorial Hospital in New York

tive, automatic measurement of volumetric breast density and a FDA cleared BI-RADS breast density category. Volpara supports most of the major digital mammography systems, can be displayed on digital mammography and PACS workstations and be integrated into mammography reporting systems.

Breast tissue density has not only been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer, it also decreases the sensitivity of the mammogram and thereby may impact early detection. Thirty-five percent of breast cancer goes undetected by mammography in women with dense breasts, as density masks the appearance of tumors (Boyd et al 2007, NEJM). Since both dense breast tissue and cancer appear white on a mammogram, finding cancers can be analogous to looking for a snowball in a snow storm.

“We are very pleased that Rome Memorial marks the 100th installation of the Volpara breast density software as they epitomize the passion and commitment of breast health professionals to use state-of-the-art technology to provide the best breast health care for their patients,” said Ralph Highnam, PhD, CEO of Matakina International. “As we rapidly move past 100 systems and nearly 1 million women’s mammograms having been analyzed, we are proud to work closely with sites to determine the best implement for their patient population to ensure that every patient that gets a mammogram has the benefit of an objective, accurate breast density measurement.”
