Cleveland Clinic Leading Clinical Program to Improve Early-Stage Lung Cancer Detection
Date:11/26/2007

est X-rays are taken each year for a variety of reasons including persistent cough, routine physical exam, pre-operative preparation and many others.(2) Chest X-rays are then viewed and analyzed by radiologists who provide an evaluation based on a visual assessment of the chest radiograph evaluation of the results. However, without chest X-ray CAD, many lung cancers may not be found or are overlooked when lung cancer is most treatable.

With chest X-ray CAD, the software "looks at" the X-ray, identifies regions of interest (actionable/suspicious pulmonary nodules), and circles them for further analysis. The radiologist is then able to review these suspicious areas more closely and determine whether additional follow-up, such as a CT scan, is needed for further evaluation/diagnosis. Chest X-ray CAD does not expose the patient to any additional radiation exposure or require any additional action by -- or involvement of -- the patient; CAD is applied by the radiologist after the chest X-ray is taken. CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are effective diagnostic follow-up methods for chest X-rays that have suspicious findings.

In previous clinical trials, Riverain's chest X-ray CAD technology helped radiologists identify 16 percent more 9-15 mm solitary pulmonary nodules that were early stage (1A) lung cancer than the radiologist would have otherwise detected without CAD. OnGuard(TM) is the only FDA-PMA approved chest X-ray CAD product on the market.(3)

"Unfortunately, most lung cancers are diagnosed too late for treatment to potentially save lives," said Sam Finkelstein, President of Riverain Medical. "We believe that OnGuard(TM) can significantly improve clinicians' ability to identify lung cancers early and have a positive impact on the rate of patient survival which amazingly hasn't improved in over 40 years."
