HALIFAX, N.S., July 30, 2019 - Densitas, a leading provider of AI solutions for digital mammography, announces their advisory board, Drs. Eliot Siegel, Georgia Spear, Nisha Sharma, and Judy Caines.
“We are honored to attract such visionaries to our advisory board,” says Mo Abdolell, CEO of Densitas. “Their collective expertise spans the fields of radiology, breast imaging, artificial intelligence, and imaging informatics. Their insights are invaluable as we launch densitas|enterprise™ to tackle the pressing challenges facing breast screening.”
“Computer aided diagnosis/detection for mammography has focused on the very narrow application of a second reader detecting microcalcifications and suspected breast masses and has engendered limited confidence in its practical added value to mammographers,” says Dr. Siegel. “I am intrigued by the broader approach that Densitas’ software suite has taken to not only provide density analysis but also to evaluate overall image quality and provide personalized breast cancer risk assessment. This more comprehensive integration into the overall workflow of image acquisition, image evaluation, and decision support represents the future of AI in a variety of different clinical domains.”
