Complete Radiology Solution Results From Partnership

Fri, 07/07/2006 - 7:33am
At the Society for Computer Applications in Radiology's (SCAR) annual meeting, Royal Philips Electronics announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with EDDA Technology to provide advanced digital radiography solutions to assist in the detection of lung lesions. Philips has licensed EDDA Technology's IQQA-Chest, which is designed to help clinicians identify, quantify, evaluate, and report pulmonary nodules. The innovative software will be available as part of the Philips digital radiography portfolio, providing an integrated hardware and software solution.

By bridging the gap between the clinician's interpretation based upon patient-specific knowledge and computer analysis of the information captured by the X-ray, IQQA-Chest helps clinicians increase their performance while improving the efficiency for the analysis of each image. In clinical environments, the solution has been shown to increase the discovery rates of small nodules up to over 85% in comparison to detection without IQQA assistance, which varies between 35% and 65%. The first real-time interactive diagnostic analysis system, IQQA-Chest integrates advanced computer analysis technology into the clinicians' diagnostic process.

IQQA-Chest will be available in combination with the entire Philips digital radiography portfolio, including DigitalDiagnost, the company's state-of-the art solution for direct digital radiography. The product will initially be available in the United States and China where the product has received regulatory clearance, and will become available in additional countries from 2007. Information:
