Densitas Enters Australian Market with Machine Learning Technology for Breast HealthFeb 27, 2018
Densitas® Inc. announced today that it has received regulatory clearance for its automated breast density software, DM-Density. DM-Density has received regulatory clearance from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and will be available through the EnvoyAI Platform.
Australia has approximately 12 million women and 1.7 million are screened for breast cancer using mammography every two years. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian women aged 50-74, with 300 new cases for every 100,000 women. Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer mortality in Australian women aged 50-74, with approximately 45 deaths per 100,000 women. The Australian Government has increased its commitment to the early detection of breast cancer by recently expanding the BreastScreen Australia target age to include women 70-74.
Phillip Cahill, Director of Diagnostic Imaging Australia, EnvoyAI’s Australian distributor, will launch DM-Density into the Australian market. “We are pleased to be able to offer Densitas’ software in Australia, as it fills a need for radiologists looking for a reliable and standardized breast density solution. Densitas® automatically reads and categorizes each mammogram, determining a patient’s breast density category, in a matter of a few seconds. The deployment of the Densitas® algorithm on the Envoy AI platform is a natural fit that radiologists will and to be seamless,” said Mr. Cahill.
“We are excited that doctors and patients in Australia can now bene t from our advanced machine learning algorithms to assess breast density,” said Mo Abdolell, CEO of Densitas®. “Our entry into the Australian market marks further expansion of our technology globally.”
