R2 and Hologic get US OK CAD (computer-aided detection)/FFDM (full field digital mammography) combination:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

R2 Technology has received US FDA approval to use its ImageChecker computer-aided detection (CAD) system with Hologic's full field digital mammography (FFDM) system, Selenia. R2's product provides radiologists with "a second pair of eyes" when reading mammograms, improving the chance of detecting findings that might otherwise be overlooked. Hologic believes that over a half of all Selenia FFDM systems sold will be equipped with CAD technology. The Bedford, Massachusetts-based firm has exclusive worldwide distribution rights to sell the R2 customised product in combination with its Selenia system. It also has distribution rights for R2 CAD products for use with conventional film-based mammography systems that can be upgraded to digital mammography systems.
