Mammography Innovation: Artificial Intelligence Enhances Breast Imaging CapabilitiesAug 6, 2021
NorthShore’s Center for Breast Health, recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the ACR, recently enhanced its mammography capabilities, leveraging densitas® intelliMammo™ artificial intelligence (A.I.) applications alongside its existing breast imaging capabilities.
The intelliMammo™ advanced analytics platform automatically generates breast density, clinical image quality, and breast cancer risk assessments for every mammogram taken at NorthShore and presents results to the radiologist to support clinical decision-making.
Dr. Georgia Spear, Chief Breast Imaging at NorthShore University Health System, speaks on the importance of standardized measures of breast density, breast cancer risk, and clinical image quality.
“It’s really important that we measure risk factors reliably and uniformly across our entire health system, and make sure we’re providing the most precise breast health insights for our patients,” said Dr. Spear, who has an academic appointment at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. “Densitas® intelliMammo™ provides the tools to deliver personalized measures of breast density, breast cancer risk, and clinical image quality that can be used to develop unbiased, tailored screening protocols for every woman every time she has a mammogram.”
