Karmanos Cancer Institute's Delphinus Receives $8 Million in Venture Capital for Product Development of Breast Cancer Imaging Tool
Date:5/24/2010

t opportunity to advance the current standards for early breast cancer detection without the risks and costs associated with other imaging modalities. Delphinus CEO Bill Greenway and his team of experts will be moving quickly to bring this life-saving technology to patients."

Delphinus, which is Latin for dolphin, symbolizes the use of underwater sound signals representative of SoftVue. Delphinus' leadership team includes Chief Executive Officer William C. Greenway; Chief Medical Officer Peter Littrup, M.D.; and Chief Technical Officer Neb Duric, Ph.D. Both Drs. Littrup and Duric of Karmanos are key co-inventors of the ultrasound tomography technology (UST). Dr. Littrup designed the ultrasound clinical studies and Dr. Duric is the project director of UST.

SoftVue uses multi-parametric ultrasound and sophisticated computer algorithms rather than X-rays, which helps to accurately detect many early stages of breast cancer, even in women with dense breast tissue often not picked up by mammography. The SoftVue exam:

  • takes about one minute
  • does not involve radiation or compression used in mammography – the current gold standard for breast cancer screening, and  
  • is a fraction of the cost of breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)

With SoftVue, the breast is submerged in warm water and an ultrasound ring surrounds the breast and captures detailed, three-dimensional images through the use of sound waves.

The system is also able to perform repeated imaging, a necessary tool for biopsy, monitoring and treatment assessment. Through its three-dimensional capabilities, SoftVue can accurately measure breast density, a
