“With more than 100 locations in the U.S. and over one million women served each year, clinicians at Solis Mammography are on the frontlines in the fight against breast cancer, and ProFound AI offers a clinically proven tool to help them address today’s top imaging challenges, including managing variability, volume, and burnout,” said Ms. Stevens. “iCAD and Solis Mammography have worked closely together over the last two years through the application of our Breast AI Suite, and we are continuing to collaborate on a powerful AI solution that will be able to assess a woman’s risk of cardiovascular disease using information available in a woman’s mammogram images. Ultimately, our companies share a mission to improve preventative healthcare for all, and we look forward to hearing about Dr. Parghi’s experience and best practices using our technology in this unique event.”
Solis Mammography was an early adopter of iCAD’s suite of Breast AI solutions, including ProFound AI, the first solution of its kind to be FDA cleared, integrating the technology into its early detection screening platform in spring 2021. During the event, Dr. Parghi will share the company’s experience deploying this technology across its network of centers.
“When we upgraded to 3D mammography seven years ago, we immediately realized the sheer volume of images was overwhelming, even for experienced specialists,” Dr. Parghi said. “ProFound AI helps us manage this data more efficiently and effectively, while boosting our team’s confidence in making clinical decisions. This technology not only enhances radiologist performance, but it elevates patient care across our enterprise.”
iCAD recently announced a partnership with Solis Mammography to collaborate on a powerful AI solution that will quantify the presence of breast arterial calcifications in a mammogram to assess the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The new agreement will build upon ProFound AI’s ability to both detect and quantify calcifications within the arteries of the breast.
iCAD’s “ProFound Insights, ProFound Impact” webinar series launched earlier this year, featuring distinguished clinical, IT and administrative experts, customer success stories and impactful case studies. Previous event recordings are available on the Company’s website, www.icadmed.com.
