Nuovo centro dedicato esclusivamente alla Colonscopia Virtuale CAD

E' stato inaugurato il primo Centro Diagnostico in Italia esclusivamente dedicato alla Colonscopia Virtuale CAD per la diagnosi dei tumori del colon-retto, anche con l'ausilio di un sofisticato CAD (Computer Aided Detection).
Il Centro diagnostico, situato presso gli ambulatori dell'ospedale Molinette della Città della Salute di Torino, nel Presidio San Lazzaro di via Cherasco 23, è frutto di una Convenzione stipulata tra la Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino e Im3D, una startup fondata da Davide Dettori e sviluppatasi in Piemonte, con competenze e tecnologie specifiche sia nell'ambito dei servizi di screening sia nel campo dell'intelligenza artificiale applicata alla diagnosi oncologica (CAD).

DBT again bests FFDM for screening

Another research study has found that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) performs better than digital mammography for breast cancer screening, reducing recall rates and also time to biopsy and final diagnosis.

DBT, synthetic 2D mammography beat standard screening

Single-reading digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) plus synthesized 2D mammography increased cancer detection and decreased recalls compared with double-reading standard mammography in a new study, published online by European Radiology on 2 January. In addition, standard mammography did not improve results when added to DBT.

DBT + synthesized 2D mammo detects more cancer

The combination of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with synthesized 2D mammography images increased the cancer detection rate in an Italian breast screening program -- with recall rates and radiation dose similar to full-field digital mammography (FFDM)

CAD provides boost for digital breast tomosynthesis

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has been praised as a powerful tool in the breast imaging armamentarium, but these 3D studies can also be time-consuming and complicated for radiologists to interpret. im3D Computer-aided detection (CAD) technology may be of assistance, Italian researchers have found.

DBT plus 2D mammography improves radiologist performance

The clinical performance of radiologists improves when digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is combined with conventional 2D full-field digital mammography (FFDM) for breast cancer screening, according to research published in the September issue of Academic Radiology.

DBT screening shows greatest benefit for younger women

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) shows its greatest benefit when used to screen women younger than 50, according to research published October 13 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. DBT was effective in reducing recalls and increasing cancer detection in these younger women, who have been at the center of the controversy over breast screening.

Proteus Colon presentation at RSNA 2014 (Chicago)

Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Results of the Proteus Colon Screening trial for Colorectal cancer will be presented at RSNA 2014. Proteus Colon is a randomized trial comparing comparing Flexible Sigmoidoscopy (FS) with CT Colonography (CTC), based on im3D CAD COLON technology. In the talk, differences in participation rate between FS and CTC in a population-based colorectal cancer (CRC) screening program in Turin, Italy, will be discussed.
Presentation will take place on Dicember 3rd at 10.50am in room E351.

DBT finds 30% more cancer than mammo in dense breast tissue

Adding digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) to full-field digital mammography (FFDM) improves cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue by 30% versus mammography alone, according to research presented on Tuesday at the RSNA 2014 meeting.

Tomo plus digital mammography decreases recalls by 37%

Adding tomosynthesis to digital mammography for breast cancer screening reduces recall rates by 37%, with the technique recording better performance for certain types of breast abnormalities, according to a new study in the January issue of Radiology.
