This article was originally published in Clinica
Hologic, the imaging firm specialising in women's health, has signed a partnership agreement under which it will become a non-exclusive distributor of tools made by Confirma (Kirkland, Washington) to help physicians read MRI breasts scans. Confirma is also adapting its FDA-approved CADStream system - which automatically processes breast MRI images and helps radiologists interpret them - to function in tandem with the Lorad Selenia, Hologic's full-field digital mammography system. Breast MRI exams can generate as many as 800 images, making manual processing and interpretation time-consuming.
