Image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy solutions provider iCAD has purchased M-Vu Breast Density software from VuCOMP.


As part of the deal, iCAD acquired VuCOMP’s breast density intellectual property product that will be incorporated with its PowerLook advanced mammography platform (AMP).

PowerLook AMP is a modular solution that has been developed to provide advanced tools for breast disease detection and analysis, including CAD for tomosynthesis.

According to iCAD, the acquired breast density tool automatically and rapidly evaluates breast density by analyzing the structure, texture and dispersion of the tissue, using the same approach used by most of the experienced radiologists.

iCAD CEO Ken Ferry said: "We are committed to delivering the innovative cancer detection and radiation therapy solutions that help clinicians find and treat cancers earlier and faster.

"We believe that the acquisition of this breast density software is a highly synergistic addition to our product portfolio, expanding the breast density solutions available in PowerLook AMP for the varying needs of our customers."

"With the expanding focus on the use of additional screening, including breast tomosynthesis, we believe automated breast density tools represent an important advantage for radiologists who need fast, accurate assessments of breast density."
