Detection for Mammography M-Vu® CAD is a computer-aided detection (CAD) system that assists radiologists by automatically identifying areas of a mammogram that are consistent with breast cancer. M-Vu CAD analyzes a mammogram using advanced mathematical algorithms to search for suspicious areas and mark them with outlines that indicate the type of potential abnormality. Solid lines indicate a possible mass while dotted lines indicate a possible cluster of microcalcifications.

Introducing M-Vu Computer-Aided Detection for Mammography

M-Vu® CAD is a computer-aided detection (CAD) system that assists radiologists by automatically identifying areas of a mammogram that are consistent with breast cancer. M-Vu CAD analyzes a mammogram using advanced mathematical algorithms to search for suspicious areas and mark them with outlines that indicate the type of potential abnormality. Solid lines indicate a possible mass while dotted lines indicate a possible cluster of microcalcifications.

M-Vu CAD communicates over a clinic’s network using DICOM communication standards to receive digital mammograms and to send results to a PACS system, review workstations, or a printer.

Compelling Study Results

The FDA now recommends comprehensive reader studies to prove that doctors are more effective when they use CAD. M-Vu CAD is the first FDA-approved mammography CAD product to meet these recommendations.

Dr. Etta Pisano at the University of North Carolina performed a comprehensive reader study that showed radiologists were more effective at detecting breast cancer when using the M-Vu CAD Version 1. A subsequent study established the effectiveness of M-Vu CAD Version 2 for digital mammography while also achieving higher sensitivity and a lower false positive rate than Version 1.

Easy to Use

M-Vu CAD’s SmartMarks™ technology provides a new level of instant clarity to CAD results, which allows a radiologist to spend more time considering a marked area and less time wondering about what CAD is indicating.

Once configured, an M-Vu system’s operation is fully automatic.

One of the essential elements of our on-going research and development is our close collaboration with radiologists. This helps ensure that our technology provides optimum usability in the daily operations of the real clinical world.
