cmTriage™ by CureMetrix® helps to triage and prioritize mammography workflow for radiologists.
LA JOLLA, CA, USA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CureMetrix, Inc., a global healthcare technology company that develops AI-driven software for radiology, is now approved by Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA) for cmTriage™, its proprietary AI-based triage software for mammography. This ANVISA approval, registration 81464750075, allows CureMetrix to market cmTriage™ to radiology practices in Brazil.
cmTriage is a workflow optimization tool that uses AI to flag suspicious mammography cases. Rather than read mammograms on a first-in, first-out basis, cmTriage helps radiologists quickly customize, sort, and prioritize their mammography worklist based on cases that may need immediate attention.
cmTriage is also the first FDA-cleared AI-based triage solution for mammography in the U.S. Based on recent research, cmTriage helps to streamline the reading process, offering up to 40% faster reading of normal cases. In a recent study, it was demonstrated that radiologists can, using cmTriage at 93% sensitivity, experience a 63% workload reduction, with no missed cancers and a reduction or elimination false negatives.
Said Alyssa Watanabe, M.D., chief medical officer at CureMetrix, “Use of cmTriage demonstrates potential for significant improvement in mammography performance measures and workload reduction.”
After an unprecedented year that required many radiology practices to quickly pivot and accommodate COVID-19 restrictions, radiologists using cmTriage™ have the potential to quickly bounce back. Sorting and prioritizing their workloads will help them handle a backlog of routine scans, and more accurately diagnose patients who may have delayed mammograms because of the pandemic.
“Streamlining workloads doesn’t just save radiologists time,” said Navid Alipour, chief executive officer for CureMetrix. “Early signs of breast cancer are missed, on average, about 50 percent of time, according to the most recent data. Using an intelligent triage software allows radiologists to give focus where it’s needed, and find more breast cancer cases earlier, improving survival rates for patients worldwide. We are pleased to offer doctors in Brazil and their patients a tool that enhances radiologists’ ability to more accurately diagnose breast cancer and save more lives, and we are grateful to ANVISA for their timely review of cmTriage.”
