Enhanced Breast Screening is equipped with the ProFound AI® Solution for Breast Screening
Breast cancer screening has improved significantly in recent years, due to ongoing advances in medical imaging technology. With the introduction of digital 3D mammography (or tomosynthesis), we now have better images and more information than ever before to be able to detect breast cancer even in its early stages. With ProFound AI, the Breast Radiologist’s tool kit is being strengthened even further by the addition of artificial intelligence.
Our facility now offers mammograms with this cutting-edge technology. ProFound AI helps the Radiologist analyse and interpret mammogram images, identifying and assessing whilst the software’s algorithm detects subtle and very small lesions, as well as those found in dense breasts. The earlier cancer is detected, the more likely you are to recover.
How does the use of ProFound AI benefit women?
ProFound AI offers clinically proven benefits to women, including improved cancer detection with fewer unnecessary call backs. Trained with one of the largest available datasets, ProFound AI compares your
mammography images against those it has learned from. It acts as another pair of eyes for doctors, helping them identify even subtle lesions that may be hard to detect with the naked eye, such as those found in dense breasts.
A clinical study found that Profound AI for DBT improved breast cancer detection by an average of 8% and reduces unnecessary patient recalls by 7%, compared to mammography alone.1
