Riverain Medical Partners With The Christie Group In Canada To Offer SoftView Enhanced Chest Imaging and OnGuard Chest X-Ray CAD Technologies

DAYTON, Ohio, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Riverain Medical announced today that the company will be partnering with leading Canadian medical imaging distributor Christie Group to offer SoftView Enhanced Chest Imaging and OnGuard Chest Xray CAD. The exclusive agreement will bring Dayton, Ohio based Riverain Medical's products to the Canadian market through Christie Group's established and reputable sales channel.

SoftView Enhanced Chest Imaging increases the clarity of digital chest X-ray images by suppressing bone and providing a soft tissue image for more confident image interpretations. This practical enterprise-wide solution uses existing X-ray equipment, providing a soft tissue image for digital chest X-rays.*

OnGuard Chest X-ray CAD identifies solitary pulmonary nodules on a chest X-ray, which could represent early-stage lung cancer. With universal PACS connectivity and seamless integration into the radiologist's existing workstation, OnGuard is a quick and easy to use tool in the fight against lung cancer. A recent study demonstrates that OnGuard can detect almost 50% of lung cancers that were missed in the initial interpretation.+

"Our technologies turn a century-old medical procedure, the chest X-ray, into a more precise, versatile solution for detecting medical conditions," said Diane Hirakawa, CEO and Chairman of Riverain Medical. "Riverain Medical is making a difference in the healthcare industry. We create solutions that are practical, safe and improve the detection of diseases early, when it really counts."

"Christie is really proud to partner with Riverain today," says Andre Dugas, COO of Christie Group. "This novel bone removal and CAD solution bolsters and valuably complements our broad radiology product portfolio. It fits on any PACS, with any radiographic chest image from any source, providing a global, cost effective tool for lung disease detection and evaluation."
