Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) software has been a fixture in digital imaging centers in the U.S. since the late 1990s. While it’s been widely implemented in the U.S., studies have shown that traditional CAD systems lack specificity and display numerous false flags that are distracting and rarely beneficial.
As mentioned in the July 2020 edition of DOTmed HealthCareBusiness News, CureMetrix was highlighted as a healthcare innovator for women's health and as a breast imaging product that helps with coronavirus backlog. With the COVID-19 pandemic pushing back breast cancer screenings for many patients, there is more reason than ever to bring products to the market that help radiologists manage their growing worklists.

However, this means that those imaging centers will soon have to deal with the challenge of managing backlogs, keeping up with patient demand and ensuring accuracy in diagnosis at the same time.
