Philips Medical Systems, the medical imaging arm of Dutch electronics giant Philips, is to add Princeton Junction, New Jersey-based EDDA Technology's IQQA-Chest software to its family of digital radiography products following a licensing agreement. The diagnostic imaging tool, designed to identify, quantify and evaluate lesions in the lung, has been shown to increase the discovery rates of small, early-stage nodules by over 85% compared to detection without IQQA assistance, which varies between 35-65%, claimed Philips. The FDA-cleared IQQA-Chest will be sold in combination with Philips' entire range of digital radiography systems in the US and China and will become available in additional countries from 2007.
