Medipattern nets first B-CAD install for breast surgery
Medipattern, a developer of computer-aided detection (CAD) medical imaging software, has its latest installation with John Kehoe, MD, a private practice breast surgeon in New York City.

B-CAD increases diagnostic assessment capability and provides structure to reporting for the breast cancer surgery market, estimated at 242,540 procedures in the United States in 2007 by the American Cancer Society, according to Toronto-based Medipattern.

“B-CAD may be developing into a critical aid in lesion assessment, with the possibility of going beyond classification to provide a well-stated and well-documented report,” said Kehoe.
