iCAD Inc. and Siemens Medical Solutions announced this week that Siemens will offer iCAD's TotalLook system as an option for use with its MAMMOMAT NovationDR full-field digital mammography system, through Siemens global sales and distribution channels.
TotalLook, introduced by iCAD at the end of 2005, provides customers with a film-to-digital solution making it easier for women's health centers to transition from film to digital mammography, according to the company. It assists radiologists in comparing breast images year-to-year to detect subtle changes that may be indicative of breast cancer. TotalLook converts prior film images into a digital format for comparison with more recent images from digital mammography systems. It automatically adjusts the digitized images for correct display on Siemens' MammoReportPlus softcopy reporting workstation.
Siemens also distributes iCAD's Second Look Digital solution for computer-aided detection of breast cancer.
