Digital Mammography CAD System

 

 

 

 

 

 

This highly advanced screening tool is designed to assist in early detection of breast cancer, with the goal of finding more cancers sooner. Developed using third-generation algorithms based on FDA-approved analog algorithms, the KODAK Digital Mammography CAD System is proven to deliver results across a wide range of clinical environments.

Features

KODAK CAD is clinically proven as the best industry performer, setting industry standards in pioneering technology.

CAD is proven to increase cancer detection rate

  • Retrospective studies of missed cancers have repeatedly shown that CAD could have helped in detection.
  • Prospective reader studies consistently show that using CAD increases the cancer detection rate by up to 20%.

Enhanced double reading performance

  • Independent studies have concluded that using single reading and CAD produces similar or better results than double-reading.*
  • Norwegian studies have highlighted the potential for CAD to increase digital mammography performance if used in addition to double-reading.**
