New Italian Study Uses ICAD’s SecondLook Digital Mammography CAD Software

iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, announced today it has provided SecondLook Digital ®, the company’s digital mammography Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) software, for an Italian feasibility study.

The study, “Using computer-assisted diagnosis (CAD - Computer Aided Detection) in the current practice of mammography screening programs,” will compare the accuracy and cost effectiveness of conventional double reading to single reading with CAD for mammography screenings and will enroll 45,000 patients at six sites throughout Italy.

“This study will help us gather the necessary information to systematically change the way we perform mammography screenings in this country. Double read scans are outdated and cumbersome when compared to the more advanced screening technologies available today,” said Giorgio Benea, M.D., Ospedale del Delta in Lagosanto, Italy and Principal Investigator for the study. “Cutting-edge technologies, like SecondLook Digital, can improve the detection of breast cancer, allowing for earlier treatment and improved patient outcomes.”

SecondLook provides a computerized second review of mammograms. This “second” or closer look allows radiologists to recognize subtle changes in breast tissue that could require a more thorough examination to confirm the presence of cancer. Additionally, SecondLook provides improved workflow for mammography centers by enabling a radiologist to more quickly identify and review areas of concern and work more efficiently.

“We are honored that Italy has chosen SecondLook Digital as the benchmark technology for this important study,” said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. “With more than 25 published studies supporting the use of CAD in conjunction with digital mammography, we are confident the results of the study will help establish single read with CAD as the nationally accepted method for mammography screening.”
