FDA clears iCAD's VeraLook for virtual colonoscopy

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

iCAD's VeraLook computer-aided detection (CAD) technology has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA. The product is used to help interpret CT colonography exams. The procedure, also known as virtual colonoscopy, could improve attendance rates at colorectal cancer screening programmes, as it is more patient-friendly than invasive optical colonoscopy, the conventional technique. VeraLook highlights suspicious areas that radiologists might miss during their first reading – a typical CT colonography exam can generate 1,200-1,500 images per patient. The technology has been shown to improve sensitivity compared with CT colonography alone (www.clinica.co.uk, 7 December 2009). VeraLook is already available in Europe.
