Vital Images, iCAD integrate CT colon CAD technology
Vital Images Inc. has signed an agreement with iCAD Inc. to integrate iCAD's Second Look CT Colon CAD application into Vitrea 2, Vital Images flagship 3D software.

Computer-aided detection (CAD) is a software technology designed to identify suspicious areas during CT screening exams. The new CAD capability as a result of the partnership is intended to assist physicians in finding polyps that could lead to colon cancer, Vital Images said.

Under this agreement, Vital Images said it will distribute the new CAD option pending FDA regulatory review.
