FDA Clears One-Click Segmentation & Measurement Tool
The FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for DL PreciseTM, our one-click tool to automate segmentation and measurement of suspicious objects in all imaging modalities. With a single click, DL PreciseTM instantly measures the long/short dimension axes, as well as area and estimated volume. Its speed and precision offer critical workflow improvement, especially in images with multiple objects to measure. In the thumbnail image at left, DL PreciseTM uses vivid color to illustrate segmentation in a suspicious area of a mammogram.

COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Call for Precise Measurement in Breast Screening
Side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine underscore yet again the importance of precise measurement in breast screening. In a new study by three leading cancer centers, women who’d been vaccinated presented suspicious axillary lymph nodes during routine screening – leading to “a diagnostic conundrum” in which potential cancer may be “indistinguishable” from nodular changes related to the vaccine. The experts recommended tracking the size, number, and shape of suspicious nodules – for which precise measurement is critical. The variability of current manual measurement, already a chronic imaging problem, is now also a challenge in the COVID context.

"Mouse Miles" To Go Before I Sleep
A new study published in RSNA’s Radiology journal reports that one radiology resident logged 1.37 mouse miles and nearly 11,000 keystrokes in a single eight-hour shift. The authors argue for automation of repetitive and time-consuming chores – precisely our rationale for one-click measurement.

Dense Breast Notifications Fall Short of Goals

To date, 38 states have enacted requirements for written notifications to women with dense breast tissue – policies of keen relevance to DeepLook’s ability to see through density to reveal the underlying morphology. A recent Boston University Medical School study, published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology, concluded that “one size fits all” notifications have limited impact – and that messages tailored to disparate communities would be more effective. One bright spot: women in notification states were twice as likely to speak with their doctors about breast health.
