Carestream releases digital mammography CAD system
CareStream Health launched its Kodak digital mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) system and showcased several works in progress at the 93rd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) last month in Chicago.

Available outside the United States, Kodak Digital Mammography CAD System for CR provides CAD analysis for Carestream Health’s CR platforms, including Kodak Directview CR 850/950/975 systems and the new Classic and Elite CR systems.

CareStream also debuted works-in-progress including: chest CAD to help detect proper placement of tubes in ICU patients; breast image registration to help identify changes in microcalcifications or other abnormalities; and computer-aided measurement (CAM) of pulmonary lesions. The company also showcased CAD software designed for several FFDM systems as works in progress, and showed chest CAD and bone mineral density osteoporosis detection systems—used in conjunction with CR and DR systems—which are currently available in China.
