Beyond Breast Cancer - Extending the Value of Mammography for Women’s Health

○ Discussion: Extending the use of the mammogram and creating more value for the radiologist, this discussion will review new and national research on the evolution of the AI-based mammogram to improve workflow, reduce false positives, and increase cancer detection. Discussion will also include an overview of how stratifying the risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) by detecting and quantifying Breast Arterial Calcifications (BAC) from a mammogram can benefit imaging centers, healthcare systems, and millions of women.

○ Session will include LIVE Q&A session with Kevin Harris, President and co-Founder of CureMetrix

#2 Wednesday, May 18, 1:30 pm EDT

High Performance of AI-based Model for Scoring BAC on Mammograms - New Scientific Research

○ Discussion: In this presentation, Dr. Watanabe will discuss the results from a clinical assessment of the external validity of a novel Breast Arterial Calcification (BAC) quantification score using novel AI-based cmAngio™ from CureMetrix. As highlighted in the clinical abstract, AI-based cmAngio demonstrates efficient processing of mammograms and excellent performance for detection of BAC in screening mammograms.
