Ultrasound breast cancer imaging device created at the Karmanos Cancer Institute one step closer to FDA approval
Date:1/28/2013

DETROIT, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SoftVue, the whole breast ultrasound imaging device created by two scientists from the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and Wayne State University School of Medicine, is currently undergoing review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for market clearance. It's anticipated that this first application clearance could come this spring, with several other FDA submissions to follow over the next couple of years. This promising imaging tool has the potential to aid in detecting breast cancer earlier, especially in women with dense breasts.

Peter Littrup , M.D., and Neb Duric, Ph.D., of the Karmanos Cancer Institute and Wayne State University School of Medicine, and their team have been working to perfect the SoftVue technology for more than a decade. The Karmanos Cancer Institute spun off a company in 2009 called Delphinus Medical Technologies to help secure funding to bring this device closer to commercialization. Since then, Delphinus has grown to 19 employees, many of whom are engineers, and plans are underway to gradually increase the sales staff once the first FDA market clearance is obtained.

"We are pleased to see the progress of SoftVue over the past 12 years, first with the concept followed by the prototype created at Karmanos a few years later," said Gerold Bepler , M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. "After years of dedication and hard work by co-creators Peter Littrup , M.D., and Neb Duric, Ph.D., along with their team, we are delighted that Karmanos has the first commercial-grade SoftVue system to offer to our patients.
