This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Eastman Kodak has received FDA clearance to sell its mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) system in the US. The product is Kodak's first CAD system developed for breast cancer detection and will be available immediately, the company said. CAD is a digital software technology designed to aid the detection of early stage breast cancer and is used as an adjunct to mammography. Kodak said that results from a clinical trial submitted to the FDA found that 39.4% of breast cancers that are missed could have been detected 14.8 months earlier using its CAD technology. Approximately 95% of patient mammography images in the US are still captured on X-ray film, the company said.
