cmTriage™ from CureMetrix is the first FDA-cleared software in the U.S. intended to provide a notification triage code to the radiologist’s mammography worklist based on the presence of a suspicious region of interest found by the underlying algorithm.
This workflow optimization tool enables a radiologist to customize their mammography list based on cases that may need immediate attention.
Currently, viewing stations do not allow for intelligent sorting and prioritizing of cases – a radiologist can only sort based on name, date of image acquisition, time of image acquisition, etc. With cmTriage, a radiologist can sort and prioritize cases in their worklist based on the presence of suspicious regions of interest found by the underlying algorithm. This gives the radiologist the opportunity to tackle the more difficult mammograms with a heightened awareness, or perhaps to assign those cases to the specialist best suited to interpret them.
cmTriage can also be used to optimize clinical protocol and maximize a clinic’s utilization of resources.
cmTriage is vendor agnostic for any 2D FFDM screening mammography equipment and takes less than five minutes to process a study, so it seamlessly integrates into a radiologist’s workflow. Additionally, cmTriage is cloud-based so there are no added systems to install or buttons to click. The software is both DICOM and HIPAA compliant and no PHI ever leaves the hospital.
cmTriage is FDA cleared as a notification-only, parallel workflow tool used to identify specific patients to a radiologist based on the presence of at least one suspicious finding to support standard of care image interpretation. It is easy to implement clinically and enables a radiologist to prioritize the most suspicious cases and optimize their workflow.
CureMetrix cmAssist® is an investigational, computer-aided detection (CAD) software that has the potential to quickly detect key regions of interest on a mammogram, and accurately quantify and classify the anomalies as suspicious or verifiably benign.
cmAssist does this by searching all views of a digital 2D-mammogram for abnormal areas of density, mass or calcification and by highlighting any suspicious areas needing further analysis. The software utilizes a unique, data-driven neuScore™ which is a quantitative measure of suspiciousness of a region of interest ranging from 0 (least suspicious) to 100 (highly suspicious). Once validated, cmAssist can as a clinical decision support tool that will enable physicians to:
cmAssist allows configuration of the operating point for both mass and calcifications that is customizable to each hospital or clinic.
The operating points establish a threshold which determines which regions of interest are displayed to the radiologist based on desired levels of sensitivity and specificity.
cmAssist has been optimized to display very few false positives per image at a high sensitivity resulting in a CAD software that radiologists can trust. The goal is to allow physicians to focus on the most relevant data and discard irrelevant variables to help them converge on answers and arrive at a diagnosis more quickly and accurately.
ChestEye Queue is a radiological queue management and triage solution, which automatically prioritizes chest X-rays of potentially unhealthy patients inviting urgent specialist attention.
ChestEye CAD is a fully automatic computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) chest X-ray solution. It localizes radiological findings on a heatmap and produces preliminary reports (image in, report out) for radiologist’s approval.
Research of similar cases
ChestEye Search finds X-Ray images with similar radiological appearance in a given database. The similarity is identified by a neural network, which judges both the pathology present as well as other features in the image such as the location of the pathology, its severity etc.
ChestEye Search empowers the user to quickly find retrospective cases with similar radiological appearance. This allows to study the report/final diagnosis/outcome of the patient.
