“AI is changing radiology as we know it, helping practices be more efficient while improving patient outcomes,” said Navid Alipour, chief executive officer of CureMetrix. “While practices today are being interrupted due to the pandemic, CureMetrix AI offers innovative solutions to help practices address the inevitable backlog caused by these delays, especially in screening mammograms. cmTriage™ is uniquely positioned to help radiologists better predict and more effectively manage their worklist of cases to drive quality and efficiency into patient care.”
CureMetrix is the developer of cmTriage™ and cmAssist®. cmTriage is the first FDA-cleared AI-based triage solution for mammography in the U.S., offering a solution to help practices identify suspicious cases which may need immediate attention and allow for optimization of clinical workflow. In published studies, cmAssist demonstrated the ability to find cancers up to six years before first detection, and help radiologists improve their breast cancer detection rate by 27% on average without increasing recall rates. In addition, when compared to traditional CAD, cmAssist also demonstrated a 69% reduction in false positives, leading to fewer unnecessary patient recalls and leaving more time for accurate diagnoses.
