Software developer iCAD launched CAD software at the European Congress of Radiology that is designed for use with full-field digital mammography systems. The product, called CompanionCAD, evolved as part of a joint R&D program involving iCAD and Fischer Imaging. Fischer Imaging is now marketing iCAD's CompanionCAD software for sale in Europe as an option with its SenoScan TrueView Digital Mammography System. CompanionCAD is based on iCAD's latest software for the early detection of breast cancer. The first European installations are expected by midsummer. Marketing of CompanionCAD in the U.S. awaits FDA approval of the product.
