cmAssist by CureMetrix helps radiologists by identifying, marking and scoring regions of interest on screening mammograms
SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, May 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CureMetrix, Inc., a global healthcare technology company that develops AI-driven software for radiology, announced it has received approval from Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA) for cmAssist®, its proprietary AI-based detection software for mammography. This ANVISA registration 81464750084 allows CureMetrix to market cmAssist to radiology practices and hospitals in Brazil.
cmAssist is an AI-based CAD software that supports the radiologist by identifying, marking and scoring regions of interest on screening mammograms to support earlier and more accurate detection of breast cancer. In two studies published in the Journal of Digital Imaging, CureMetrix cmAssist AI-CAD was able to reduce false positives by 69% over traditional CAD and help radiologists improve their breast cancer detection rate 27% on average, without increasing recall rates.
According to Alyssa Watanabe, MD, FACR, chief medical officer at CureMetrix, “Improving sensitivity and specificity, cmAssist AI-CAD acts as a ‘second pair of eyes’ for the radiologist, delivering efficiency and more accurate detection of breast cancer for the women of Brazil.”
“In 2020 there were over 66,000 new cases of breast cancer in Brazil. Empowering the radiologist with cmAssist can make a world of difference in flagging cancer earlier, with fewer false positives, so doctors can expedite care,” said Navid Alipour, chief executive officer at CureMetrix. “We thank ANVISA for their review of cmAssist so we can continue to deliver the value that CureMetrix AI brings to women’s health.”
