FDA Clears Volpara™ Breast Imaging Software for Automatic Calculation of Volumetric Breast Density
Date:11/18/2010

hich are becoming increasingly important as adjuvant imaging is being added to traditional screening mammography.

"Density has become a breast healthcare issue of increasing importance as Connecticut and at least seven other states have enacted or are considering density notification legislation. This was bolstered recently as Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, expressed Komen's position that it should be regular practice for doctors to inform women of their breast density if their mammogram shows they have dense breast tissue, and that it is important for doctors to discuss with their patients with dense breasts what additional screening tools might be appropriate for them," said Gerald Kolb, vice president of Business Development for Volpara.
