See original story here  Breast imaging analytics innovator Densitas Inc. announced today that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its machine learning breast density assessment software. The software empowers radiologists with standardized, personalized and automated density reports to optimize women’s breast health and follow-up care decisions.“Receiving 510(k) clearance marks a significant milestone in our company’s growth as we expand our global reach into the U.S. market with our flagship product,” said Mohamed Abdolell, CEO of Densitas. We are delighted to be entering the largest medical device market in the world, especially as 31 states have passed mandatory breast density notification laws.” Breast density has been shown to be strongly associated with cancer risk. Densitas has the distinct advantage of facilitating breast density assessments of routinely stored standard processed images and their priors because the technology processes the same standard digital mammograms that radiologists view.  This provides a practical solution for integrating breast density into risk-based models in population-based screening.The software is cleared for clinical use in the U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia, and is the first of several follow-on products. The software is being showcased at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2018), booth 114 at the Austria Center Vienna.About Densitas Densitas develops advanced imaging analytics technologies powered by machine learning that deliver actionable insights at point-of-care for personalized breast health.
