The third generation of ProFound AI for DBT offers clinicians the ability to interpret the vast amount of data in DBT cases with greater precision and efficiency. A recent study involving ProFound AI Version 2.0 presented at two major breast imaging conferences earlier this year found that when radiologists factored in breast density and age, ProFound AI helped radiologists identify up to 58.6 percent of normal cases, with no false negatives. ProFound AI Version 3.0 offers additional specificity and performance improvements over previous versions of the software, which stands to further improve these study results, and may also contribute to a reduction in the rate of false positives, without compromising cancer detection.
Built with the latest in deep-learning technology, ProFound AI for DBT Version 3.0 rapidly analyzes each tomosynthesis image, detecting malignant soft tissue densities and calcifications with unrivaled accuracy. Certainty of Finding and Case Scores are assigned to each detection and each case respectively. These are relative scores computed by the ProFound AI algorithm that represent the algorithm's confidence that a detection or case is malignant; this crucial information may help radiologists in clinical decision making.
