EDDA Technology Launches IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise CAD Solution for Digital X-Ray

EDDA Technology Launches IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise CAD Solution for Digital X-Ray

PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- EDDA Technology today announced the commercial release of IQQA(R)-Chest software V2.0 featuring enterprise CAD solution for digital X-ray. IQQA(R)-Chest is the only FDA cleared system to offer real-time interactive diagnostic analysis of digital chest X-rays using a comprehensive set of tools to support radiologists in their identification, confirmation and quantification of lung nodules. IQQA(R)-Chest has clinically demonstrated an ability to improve radiologists' detection of small lung nodules (5-15mm) up to 85 percent.

Powered with the same computer-assisted detection support software of the debut software V1.0, IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise aims to redefine how advanced clinical applications can and should be accessed by radiologists. Up to now, radiologists have simply had to accept that the use of advanced imaging software meant they would have to operate at dedicated workstations detached from their primary PACS review stations. Although static image results could often be sent from these stand-alone workstations back to a PACS for review, it was still not possible to enjoy access to the full functionality of these advanced applications at the PACS viewing station.

Responding to this clinical challenge, EDDA has developed a unique enabling solution capable of instantly deploying the full functionality of the IQQA(R)-Chest application on existing PACS review consoles without additional requirement or setup effort on the workstations.

According to Dr. Edwin van Beek, Professor of Radiology, University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics, the need for this level of performance is particularly critical with chest radiography, the most frequently performed imaging study. University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics, a commercial site of EDDA's, has recently been upgraded to IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise.

"With the number of chest X-rays we read on a daily basis, to maximize the benefit from a CAD application will be highly dependent upon the accessibility we have to the full application at our PACS review stations," added Dr. van Beek. "EDDA has cleared this hurdle with IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise. The immediacy we now enjoy with this tool allows us to expand our use of the application at the University of Iowa with the prospect of further enhancing our overall detection rate."

Dr. van Beek and his colleagues will report on a clinical study conducted at the University of Iowa in which the software was used in their daily practice since January 2006. The study suggests that the software could help residents detect approximately 20% more small lung nodules. The results have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming RSNA 2006 meeting.

"EDDA's vision of seamlessly integrating our advanced detection analysis technology into the radiologist's softcopy reading environment to improve workflow and support clinical decision-making is now being realized with IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise," said Jianzhong Qian, President and CEO of EDDA Technology. "With the survivability of lung cancer tied heavily to early detection, we are pleased to provide an innovative solution that can significantly enhance the broad access of our advanced CAD application in physicians' daily clinical practice."

EDDA Technology will feature IQQA(R)-Chest Enterprise at the upcoming 92nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). RSNA 2006 will also provide the occasion for EDDA to showcase another advanced imaging application, IQQA(R)-Liver. Using data from a contrasted multiphase CT liver study, IQQA(R)-Liver provides radiologists with comprehensive tools to review all acquired phases simultaneously with automatic anatomic phase registration. It also provides segmentation and measurement tools for visualizing and analyzing liver lesions and vascular structures to support liver disease diagnosis and preoperative assessment and planning. IQQA(R)-Liver has clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Chinese State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA).

"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Don’t go chasing waterfall … development, that is. According to a recent post by Madison Moore on Medium featuring insights from several software delivery industry leaders, waterfall is – while still popular – not the best way to win in the marketplace. With methodologies like Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery becoming ever more prominent over the past 15 years or so, waterfall is old news. Or, is it? Moore cites a recent study by Gartner: “According to Gartner’s IT Key Metrics Data report, ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
