Quebec-based CADx Medical Systems has signed a two-year agreement to provide the members of Healthcare Services of New England access to its Second Look computer-aided detection (CAD) system. This is the third such agreement struck by CADx in recent weeks. Last month the company signed sole source agreements with two group purchasing organizations, MAGNET and Radiology Partners. Second Look highlights potential areas of concern, calling attention to subtle changes in tissue that may indicate the presence of cancer. CAD systems approved by the FDA for mammography earn Medicare reimbursement of $17.74 per patient for the service.
