iCAD Profound Artificial Intelligence
ProFound AI is a high-performance, deep-learning, cancer detection and workflow solution for DBT delivering critical benefits to radiologists, their facilities, and their patients through improvement of cancer detection rates by an average of 8 percent and decreasing unnecessary patient recall rates by an average of 7 percent. The new technology is trained to detect malignant soft-tissue densities and calcifications. It also provides radiologists with scoring information representing the likelihood that a detection or case is malignant based on the large dataset of clinical images used to train the algorithm.
In addition to improving clinical performance related to breast cancer detection and false positive rates, study results showed that ProFound AI can reduce radiologists’ reading time by more than 50 percent on average. An increase in reading time has been a significant challenge for radiologists when moving from 2D to 3D mammography.
