Successful RSNA 2018 for Volpara and Launch of the VolparaLive! System

Volpara Health – Updated on March 10, 2021

Volpara had its best-ever response from the 50,000-plus radiology professionals attending the 2018 RSNA conference in Chicago, Volpara’s key event for showcasing its products. We more than doubled the number of solid leads compared to last RSNA and attracted a huge amount of both attendee and corporate interest in what we’re doing.

Volpara’s Board meets in person at RSNA to do a complete strategic review of the company, with a view to the FY2020 budget and beyond. This year’s Board meeting was notable for the positive outlook for the company and the sheer number of opportunities ahead of us.

A highlight for Volpara at RSNA was the launch of the VolparaLive! system. Below is a picture of the interface. The aim is to tell the technologist within seconds about the quality of the exam and to help her consider whether the quality is good enough before the woman goes home:

“We had a great reaction from the visitors who saw the VolparaLive! system at the Volpara booth, and we believe the product is going to do well on the market,” Volpara Chief Executive Dr Ralph Highnam said. “This product complements the VolparaDensity clinical application and VolparaEnterprise software, so will add valuable ARPU for us, as well as attract new customers.”

Volpara hosted a distinguished speaker series at the RSNA meeting which included Prof Jack Cuzick, Director, Wolfson Institute of Preventative Medicine; JoAnn Pushkin, Executive Director, DenseBreast-Info.org; Prof Sir Mike Brady, Professor of Oncological Imaging, University of Oxford; and Amy Chatten, Executive Director, Mammography Educators, LLC; and a live TweetChat with the Radiology Chicks.

Professor Jack Cuzick, the driving force behind the Tyrer-Cuzick 8 breast cancer risk model, talked extensively for Volpara at RSNA. He’s pictured here by the booth of another company that is advertising the use of the VolparaDensity clinical application with the Tyrer-Cuzick 8 model to find women who might benefit from extra imaging, paid for by insurers in the United States.
