R2 Technology files suit against CADx:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

R2 Technology of Sunnyvale, California, has filed a patent infringement suit against Shire Pharmaceuticals subsidiary CADx Medical Systems of Laval, Quebec, CADx Systems of Northborough, Massachusetts, and Qualia Computing of Beavercreek, Ohio. It claims that the defendants' Second Look breast cancer detection system infringes three of its patents covering techniques for scanning, processing and displaying images. R2 markets the ImageChecker computer-aided diagnosis system for screening, diagnostic and digital mammography. "All Second Look technology was researched, developed and patented by CADx scientists," said CADx CEO Steve Rogers. CADx claims to have published its first work in CAD mammography 26 years before R2's patents.
