iCAD Initiates Clinical Study of Its Virtual Colonoscopy CAD in Partnership with ACR Image Metrix

Although 140,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with colon cancer this year, it is one of the most preventable cancers when early polyps are detected and removed. More than 82 million Americans are over 50 years of age, thus making them eligible for colorectal cancer screening; however, diagnostics are significantly underutilized, due at least in part to the invasive nature of current screening procedures such as colonoscopy. Results from recent trials including the National CTC Trial conducted by the ACR Imaging Network (ACRIN) that demonstrated the effectiveness of virtual colonoscopy as a screening procedure, coupled with recent initiatives to establish Medicare reimbursement for the procedure, may increase the viability of virtual colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening and are likely to drive increased utilization of the procedure.

"CT Colonography will not only provide a new and necessary option for cancer detection, but has the potential to increase screening rates nationwide," said Abraham Dachman, M.D., Professor of Radiology, University of Chicago Medical Center and Principal Investigator of the Colon CAD study. "While we expect the benefits in polyp detection will be significant, we are also exploring how enhanced workflow features can add to the benefit CAD provides to CT Colonography."
