ProFound AI Prevailed as the Premier AI Solution in a Competitive
Trial at Wake Radiology

With 14 imaging locations in the Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area
and a full fleet of Hologic® gantries, Wake Radiology offers a wide array of
imaging exams in the outpatient setting, including screening and diagnostic
mammography. But when Wake Radiology upgraded to 3D mammography, the
organization soon realized that the substantial increase in the volume of
images compared to 2D mammography resulted in workload challenges for its radiologists.
organization sought an AI solution that would offer the flexibility and scalability
to work with different picture archiving and communication systems (PACS)
across 21 gantries and a variety of viewing environments, and decided to
explore all available AI solutions for mammography, ultimately choosing to
adopt ProFound AI for DBT.


“After comparing all available options, we felt that iCAD’s
technology was simply the best,” said Matt Dewey, Chief Information Officer at
Wake Radiology. “We needed an AI solution that would allow us to read
mammograms from either the Hologic workstation or from the Intelerad® PACS and
ProFound AI, which supports multiple output formats, was able to provide that


The team first began using ProFound AI for screening mammograms,
but in June 2021 they also began using it for diagnostic mammograms.


“As a diagnostic radiologist, I’m not reading nearly as many
mammograms as someone reading screening mammograms, but I have still grown to
rely on the technology,” said William G. Way Jr., MD, Diagnostic Radiologist at
Wake Radiology. “I see a fair number of screening callbacks, and when I review
the diagnostic images, I rely heavily on the areas of concern detected by
ProFound AI on the original screening mammogram. When my findings at the time
of the diagnostic workup are concordant with ProFound AI from the original
screening examination, I feel much better about signing off on the case as a
BIRADS 2 or 3. I have come to appreciate that when ProFound AI indicates the
risk of malignancy is low, you can almost always trust it. And for my
colleagues who do large volume screening mammography, ProFound AI serves as a
reliable ‘second reader’ that helps them avoid making errors in


After a year of implementing the technology, the team at Wake
Radiology reports continued satisfaction with ProFound AI, particularly as it
improves over time with ongoing updates and new versions.


“iCAD is definitely continuing to put resources into improving
their technology. Over the last year of using ProFound AI in our clinical
practice, we’ve seen the technology advance over time, with noticeable
improvements for the latest versions compared to its predecessor,” added Dewey.
“Not only has the algorithm itself improved since we adopted it, the formatting
has also improved, making it even better for our radiologists.”


RCI Became the First in the State to Adopt ProFound AI as its
Breast AI Solution for Mammography

Iowa’s largest radiology group, Radiology Consultants of Iowa
(RCI), upgraded to Hologic’s Selenia® Dimensions® 3D mammography system in 2014 and Hologic Clarity HDTM
with 3DQuorumTM in 2021. However, the organization then found their
previous computer-aided detection (CAD) solution was not providing adequate
support to help radiologists manage the increase in workload. The organization
sought a breast AI solution that would seamlessly integrate into their
workflow, without overloading the facility with additional hardware, and after
a thorough evaluation of all available technologies, in 2021 the organization
ultimately decided to become the first facility in Iowa to adopt ProFound AI
for DBT.


“When it comes to AI, iCAD was the first in the game. Although AI
itself is still in its infancy, iCAD is ahead of other companies that are just now
entering the market of breast AI. Additionally, the data supporting ProFound AI
speaks for itself. After looking at reader studies for other AI solutions, we
were not as confident that what they were offering was as robust as iCAD’s
technology,” said Arnold B. Honick, MD, a Diagnostic Radiology Specialist at
RCI. “Other AI solutions are essentially a black box attached to each gantry,
and there is a significant cost per gantry. ProFound AI operates on just one
centralized server, which streamlined and accelerated the integration process.”


“We decided to adopt ProFound AI because we felt it was the best
product available to provide valid CAD markers on DBT. We also found iCAD’s other breast AI solutions
enticing, such as PowerLook® Density Assessment and ProFound AI® Risk, as
technologies we would like to assess,” added Dr. Honick.


Upon adoption, Dr. Honick and the RCI team noticed ProFound AI
boosted their confidence and helped them to read cases more efficiently and


“ProFound AI has provided noticeable efficiency improvements for
us already. It gives me the confidence that I’m looking at the appropriate
slices, or images. And using the Case Scores, we are now able to help decipher
mammograms with very low likelihood of containing an abnormality from one that
might require further evaluation,” said Dr. Honick. “I’ve learned to trust
ProFound AI. We found a couple cases where ProFound AI helped the radiologist
find a subtle area of distortion that might have been easily overlooked. And
these are clearly abnormalities on the synthetic view that you would never see,
so it has certainly helped improve our performance and accuracy as well.”


Kettering Health Traded out Previous AI Software for ProFound AI

The team at Kettering Health, a leading faith based,
not-for-profit hospital system in southwest Ohio, recently set upon a journey
to upgrade its 14 breast centers with new 3D mammography equipment. However,
the team soon found that the AI solution on some of their mammography units was
not supporting radiologists adequately. After extensive research, the
organization chose ProFound AI as its AI solution for DBT, ultimately deciding
to implement this technology across all of their locations.


“ProFound AI is a game changer. Other AI technologies for DBT seem
like smoke and mirrors when compared with ProFound AI. It is clearly the most
advanced technology of its kind on the market,” said Sally Grady, Director of
Kettering Health Breast Centers. “Improving accuracy and efficiency is key.
Every time a patient is called back, that woman assumes she has cancer.
Reducing false positives and callbacks is a huge benefit, not only to our
patients but to our technologists and radiologists. We only want to call back
the women who really need it, and ProFound AI can help our team differentiate
that and read mammograms more accurately.”


Meghan Musser, DO, Medical Director for Breast Imaging at
Kettering Health, agreed that ProFound AI has helped to improve both accuracy
and efficiency for radiologists at the facility, helping them to detect small,
subtle lesions that might not stand out to the naked eye, which has ultimately
enhanced patient care.


“ProFound AI helps to improve clinical confidence while reading
mammograms, which then translates into the discussion I have with the patient,”
said Dr. Musser. “ProFound AI is particularly helpful in finding subtle
lesions, such as invasive lobular cancers, which tend to be the type of cancers
radiologists fear the most, simply because they can be so difficult to detect.
In fact, we were hoping to determine whether ProFound AI detected some of the
cancers that we had later deemed as interval breast cancers, or cancers that
develop between screenings, and in a good portion of those cases, we confirmed
ProFound AI did detect something, even if it was subtle, which only further
increased our confidence in the technology.”


Kettering Health initially offered breast cancer screening with
ProFound AI at four locations, but Grady soon made the decision to expand
access to this technology across its entire enterprise of facilities.


“We felt it was critical to offer this potentially lifesaving
technology to all of our patients,” added Grady. “We felt offering it to only
some of our patients was almost creating a disparity of sorts, and we felt that
the value this technology offers was something we wanted to offer to every
woman who is screened for breast cancer at one of our centers. Having ProFound
AI really helps to set us apart from other facilities in the area; while we
upgraded all of our breast screening technology, ProFound AI is truly the icing
on the cake.”
