How to use Case Scores

Case Scores are assigned to each case by the algorithm. These represent the algorithm's confidence that a case is malignant, on a scale between 0% to 100%.

The Case Score helps to:

  • Prioritize examinations and work-lists
  • Rapidly confirms normal cases
  • Allows radiologists to spend more time
      on challenging cases
  • Reduce screening mammography workload

How to use Certainty of Finding Scores

A Certainty of Finding score is assigned to each lesion identified by ProFound AI. From 0% to 100%, it represents the algorithm’s confidence that the lesion is malignant.

Examples with Certainty of Finding Scores for Soft Tissue Density Detections

85% Certainty of Finding48% Certainty of Finding

Examples with Certainty of Finding Scores for Calcification Detections

97% Certainty of Finding43% Certainty of Finding

The Certainty of Finding Score helps to:

  • Interpret the lesion
  • Determine if a suspicious finding needs further evaluation
  • Improve diagnostic performance
  • Enhance workflow

Clinical Evidence

ProFound AI for 2D Mammography offers superior sensitivity and reduces interval breast cancer rates

  • Superior sensitivity
    With a sensitivity of 91.5 percent, the ProFound AI 2D algorithm offers a superior sensitivity compared to two radiologists without the support of AI2
  • Reduces interval breast cancer rates
    A retrospective analysis shows that ProFound AI for 2D Mammography could have helped detect 48% of interval cancers and 93% of subgroups that include false-negatives and minimal sign lesions3

Watch Dr Gräwingholt presenting his retrospective study on interval cancers in a screening population.

Clinical Case Study

Axel Gräwingholt, MD, Head of the Mammography department at Radiologie am Theater used ProFound AI for 2D mammography, for tomosynthesis and ProFound AI Risk to retrospectively analyze a patient whose breast cancer could have been detected earlier if ProFound AI and ProFound AI Risk were available, applied, and used as a decision tool for supplemental screening.

Platform

ProFound AI for 2D mammography and Tomosynthesis runs on the industry-leading PowerLook® server platform with NVIDIA® Graphical Processing Units (GPU), the latest in powerful GPU technology. PowerLook is a flexible and reliable DICOM platform that easily integrates with image modalities, mammography review workstations, PACS, and image storage systems. Leveraging the latest in GPU technology, the algorithm can rapidly process a 4-view tomosynthesis case, ensuring results are available to radiologists in the most efficient manner.

Trust the proven leader in Breast AI.
