The FDA has issued an approvable letter for a mammography CAD device developed by Kodak. Approvable letters usually precede final FDA consent for marketing, provided certain criteria are met.

According to the company, clinical trial results submitted to the FDA suggest that 39.4% of missed breast cancers would be detected 14.8 months earlier if Kodak's new technology were used.
