The University of Chicago is collaborating with R2 Technology on the development of a computer-aided detection mammography workstation, leveraging an investigational CAD reference library that contains a database of both malignant and benign lesions. The reference library, which radiologists will be able to access for clinical comparison and relevancy, is being made available to R2 under an exclusive licensing agreement with the University of Chicago. This agreement is a natural extension of R2's existing collaboration with the university. The library may be the means for developing the next generation of CAD tools, according to Michael Klein, president and CEO of R2 Technology. The reference library workstation is designed to display and compare lesions the way most radiologists do in their own minds.
