Applying Latest Advances of Artificial Intelligence to
Medical Imaging in Breast Cancer Detection.
"Scientific studies carried out both in the USA and in Europe, published in peer reviewed medical journals, have proved that adding ABUS to FFDM in screening asymptomatic women with dense breast tissue improves the detection of invasive breast cancer cases significantly.
Reading the large number of ABUS images can be both time consuming and often distracting. It can be compared to paging through six books (six acquisitions). QVIEW CAD provides a single image of each acquisition ("book") by seeing through all the pages and automatically highlighting the entire 3D breast in a single image, pointing out the lesion and its location accurately. This makes reading much shorter and more focused. The combination of QVCAD added to ABUS will revolutionize our way of screening asymptomatic women with dense breasts."

"Asian randomized controlled studies, J-START and Chinese RCT, suggest that screening breast cancer with ultrasound is eﬀective in Asian women. I think automated breast ultrasound combined with QVCAD can assist in detecting more invasive breast cancer than mammography in mass screening."

"The FDA approval of QVCAD for ABUS represents a major innovation in early detection of breast cancer. The QVCAD pivotal study demonstrated that the use of QVCAD reduced the readers' ABUS review time with no decrease in diagnostic accuracy."

"QVCAD is a leading edge innovative system for ABUS, which has been meticulously designed to maintain diagnostic accuracy with reduced reading time. I have been using QVCAD as an investigational tool in my practice for three years and find that it is essential for my routine ABUS reading."

"From my experience with QVCAD, I believe it will be a much-needed aid in shortening the learning curves of new ABUS users as well as increasing their confidence in interpreting ABUS exams. These critical elements will encourage adoption of this very important adjunctive screening modality."

"The majority of Asian women have dense breasts. Ultrasound has proven to be very eﬀective in breast cancer screening in Asia. Our study demonstrates that QVCAD improves radiologist performance in both accuracy and interpretation time for the detection of breast cancer. We believe that it also increases radiologist's diagnostic confidence in routine screening."

"QVCAD represents the very best in breast cancer screening ultrasound technology. I have been using QVCAD as an investigational tool for two years and experienced decreasing reading time as well as increasing diagnostic confidence. I feel QVCAD will become the new standard-of-care in breast ultrasound interpretation."

"In reviewing an ABUS screening exam, I can initially examine the entire case in a single glance with QVCAD. From my early experience with QVCAD, I find ultrasound CAD much more critical for screening than mammography CAD."
