Software designed to visualize lung nodules detected by CT has gained 510(k) clearance. PrimeLung, developed by AccuImage, consists of an integrated set of modules, each with a specific function. One provides advanced 2D and 3D navigation and visualization tools that allow automated measurement of nodules. The second seeks prior studies and matches the nodules where appropriate. The third is a report generator. Another component, which identifies suspicious areas of interest that merit further examination by a physician, is undergoing clinical trials.
