Speaker Series includes Prof Jack Cuzick, DBI’s JoAnn Pushkin, Mammography Educators’ Amy Chatten, and Oxford University’s Prof Sir Mike Brady
CHICAGO, November 16, 2018 – Volpara Solutions, Inc. will showcase its latest artificial intelligence (AI) updates at the upcoming 104th Annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting, November 25–30, 2018 (South Hall #2565). Its suite of cloud-based quantitative breast imaging analysis tools is designed to help maintain consistent quality in breast screening.
This year, Volpara will launch the Volpara®Live!™ system, mammography’s first real-time decision support system at the point of care. The VolparaLive! system automatically analyzes patient positioning and compression to help technologists acquire consistent, high-quality mammograms. One of the key benefits of the system is the cost reduction of fewer technical recalls, made possible by providing technologists with actionable data before the patient leaves the room.
Major improvements to the Volpara®Enterprise™ software will be demonstrated for the first time: a new reporting function for periodic image quality reviews further streamlines EQUIP compliance and the image quality review process; users can generate a list of exams based on the VolparaEnterprise quality assessment for periodic image quality reviews, sorting by interpreting physicians and technologists; and the software now features vPGMI, a new image positioning quality standard.
This year, Volpara is proud to host a distinguished speaker series at RSNA, including:
