Parascript Granted FDA Approval for Mammography Computer-Aided Detection System
Date:9/4/2013

Longmont, Colorado (PRWEB) September 04, 2013

Parascript®, LLC, the image analysis and pattern recognition technology provider, today announced FDA premarket approval (PMA) of its AccuDetect® 6.1 Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) system for digital mammography. AccuDetect is indicated for use in screening mammography to identify areas suspicious for breast cancer, for radiologist review, after completing an initial read.

AccuDetect gives Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) system manufacturers a next-generation CAD technology option to help radiologists increase cancer detection rates and lower patient recalls. AccuDetect is approved for digital mammography systems manufactured by GE Healthcare and Philips Healthcare. The breakthrough technology has been proven to lead to a significant increase in effectiveness of radiologists in an enriched retrospective reader study*. The software works by using complimentary algorithms and patented voting method to help radiologists more accurately detect cancers while lowering the incidence of patients sent for unnecessary diagnostic workups.

AccuDetect delivers very high performance on dense and extremely dense breasts, in which cancer can be more difficult to detect. In a study* the system provided the following results on dense breasts: 85 percent sensitivity, 43 percent specificity and 1.5 false positives per four-view study.

AccuDetect can help radiologists to enhance the effectiveness in discriminating between malignant and non-malignant cases, and boosts patient care by helping radiologists to simultaneously increase the chance of finding a cancer and reduce the chance of unnecessary diagnostic procedures. As a result, patients may experience reduced anxiety and lower medical expenses due to fewer unnecessary recalls.

“We are very excited to have obtained FDA approval for AccuDetect. Our vision has always been to build the world’s best CAD pro
