QView's AI-QVCAD, combined with GEHC's ABUS breast ultrasound system, potentially accelerates the acceptance of 3D breast ultrasound as supplemental screening for women with dense breast tissue.
LOS ALTOS, Calif. - Jan. 18, 2023 - PRLog -- QView, Inc., a medical technology leader providing artificial intelligence systems for breast cancer detection, and GEHC have signed a distribution agreement where QView Medical's AI-QVCAD software system will be added to GEHC's portfolio of breast imaging AI solutions for the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.
Under the deﬁnitive agreement, GEHC will market and sell AI-QVCAD for its ABUS – Automated Breast Ultrasound System.
"QView working with GEHC is an excellent example of two organizations leveraging our mutual strengths and technological capabilities to provide a multimodality approach for breast screening. There is no single imaging screening solution," said Bob Wang, President, and CEO of QView, Inc
Mammography misses one-third of the cancers in screening women with dense breast tissue; breast density increases women's cancer risk 4-6 times, affecting more than 40 percent of women1. Earlier cancer detection is critical to increased survival rates, improved patient care, and reduced cost of care.
The ABUS 2.0 is the first FDA-approved Ultrasound supplemental breast screening technology specifically designed for detecting cancer in dense breast tissue. Adding AI-QVCAD software to the ABUS system is a powerful tool in detecting breast cancers earlier when they are more treatable, less invasive treatments, and improve patient quality of life.
Clinicians can now review AI-QVCAD results on the Invenia ABUS Viewer, streamlining clinical workflow and reducing the reading time by up to 33%2 while improving clinical outcomes with up to 93%3 sensitivity for lesion detection.
QView Medical supports all efforts to raise awareness of breast density as a significant risk factor - #DENSEBREASTINFO #AREYOUDENSE. QView supports passage of #FINDITEARLY Federal bill requiring health insurers to reimburse for screening and diagnostic breast ultrasound exams – no copay, no deductible.
