Karmanos Cancer Institute Launches Company and Innovative Breast Imaging Tool
Date:11/16/2009

DETROIT, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After more than 10 years of research and development, the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute announced its launch of a new company to build and market a breast cancer screening device invented at Karmanos. The innovative technology developed as C.U.R.E. (Computerized Ultrasound Risk Evaluation), now referred to as SoftVue, will be marketed under the new spin-off company called Delphinus Medical Technologies, LLC. The company has already secured sale commitments for the SoftVue system from several health institutions nationally and internationally.

More than 300 women were involved in the initial clinical studies, which confirmed that SoftVue accurately and safely identifies breast cancer. SoftVue uses multi-parametric ultrasound and sophisticated computer algorithms rather than X-rays. The SoftVue exam takes about one minute, does not involve radiation or compression as the current mammography, and is a fraction of the cost of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). It's believed that it will help reduce the number of false positives that can occur with mammography and thereby reduce unnecessary biopsies.

"I'm proud to work with a dedicated team of physicians, scientific researchers and other medical experts who are committed to having a world free of cancer," said Ann G. Schwartz, Ph.D., MPH, interim president and chief executive officer, Karmanos Cancer Institute. "Neb Duric, Ph.D., and Peter J. Littrup, M.D., as well as their entire research team, never lost sight of the significance of achieving their goal. They continue to work tirelessly so this incredible imaging technology can go beyond the trial stage to benefit more people and help save lives."
