LEXINGTON, Mass., Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging and medical informatics solutions, and Volpara Solutions, a purpose-driven software company on a mission to prevent advanced-stage breast cancer, today announced an expanded partnership to provide mammography facilities and clinicians with breast imaging solutions designed to improve image quality, streamline workflow and accurately assess a patient's breast density.

Building on a successful 6-year partnership, Fujifilm's customers using ASPIRE Cristalle with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) now have access to the latest innovations from Volpara's Breast Health Platform. Volpara®Live!™ helps reduce patient recalls due to poor image quality by giving mammographers instant feedback on positioning and compression—which the FDA attributes as the cause of most image deficiencies—for adjustment before the patient leaves the room. Volpara® Enterprise™ provides a comprehensive analysis of quality on every mammogram and tomosynthesis image taken at the facility to identify opportunities for improvement.

"Consistent mammography quality and accuracy are critical to ensuring that we are able to provide women the best possible breast health care. We are excited to work with Fujifilm and Volpara to implement a system-wide quality program across our entire network, including the University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute and our Community Breast Care Centers," said Laurie Fajardo, MD, Professor of Radiology at the University of Utah, School of Medicine and the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. "We expect the objective data provided by Volpara will be a tremendous tool in both our quality improvement and productivity efforts, and will significantly streamline our accreditation processes."

Dense breast tissue is associated with an increased risk of developing breast cancer.1 Volpara's Enterprise includes a module that uses proprietary x-ray physics, AI and machine learning to generate an accurate volumetric measure of breast composition. It provides a repeatable, consistent, and objective means of scoring breast density.

"Early detection is critical to breast cancer survival. It's essential that clinicians and patients have as many resources available to them to quickly and accurately find any possible signs of disease," said Christine Murray, Women's Health Product Manager, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. "Fujifilm is thrilled to expand our relationship with Volpara Solutions to offer our customers the clinical decision-support tools they need to improve mammography quality and enhance patient care."
