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).

How is DevOps going within your organization? If you need some help measuring just how well it is going, we have prepared a list of some key DevOps metrics to track. These metrics can help you understand how your team is doing over time. The word DevOps means different things to different people. Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team.
For many of us laboring in the fields of digital transformation, 2017 was a year of high-intensity work and high-reward achievement. So we’re looking forward to a little breather over the end-of-year holiday season. But we’re going to have to get right back on the Continuous Delivery bullet train in 2018. Markets move too fast and customer expectations elevate too precipitously for businesses to rest on their laurels. Here’s a DevOps “to-do list” for 2018 that should be priorities for anyone w...
If testing environments are constantly unavailable and affected by outages, release timelines will be affected. You can use three metrics to measure stability events for specific environments and plan around events that will affect your critical path to release.
In a recent post, titled “10 Surprising Facts About Cloud Computing and What It Really Is”, Zac Johnson highlighted some interesting facts about cloud computing in the SMB marketplace: Cloud Computing is up to 40 times more cost-effective for an SMB, compared to running its own IT system. 94% of SMBs have experienced security benefits in the cloud that they didn’t have with their on-premises service
DevOps failure is a touchy subject with some, because DevOps is typically perceived as a way to avoid failure. As a result, when you fail in a DevOps practice, the situation can seem almost hopeless. However, just as a fail-fast business approach, or the “fail and adjust sooner” methodology of Agile often proves, DevOps failures are actually a step in the right direction. They’re the first step toward learning from failures and turning your DevOps practice into one that will lead you toward even...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
While walking around the office I happened upon a relatively new employee dragging emails from his inbox into folders. I asked why and was told, “I’m just answering emails and getting stuff off my desk.” An empty inbox may be emotionally satisfying to look at, but in practice, you should never do it. Here’s why. I recently wrote a piece arguing that from a mathematical perspective, Messy Desks Are Perfectly Optimized. While it validated the genius of my friends with messy desks, it also gener...
The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Microservices being modular these are faster to change and enables an evolutionary architecture where systems can change, as the business needs change. Microservices can scale elastically and by being service oriented can enable APIs natively. Microservices also reduce implementation and release cycle time and enables continuous delivery. This paper provides a logical overview of the Mi...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
The enterprise data storage marketplace is poised to become a battlefield. No longer the quiet backwater of cloud computing services, the focus of this global transition is now going from compute to storage. An overview of recent storage market history is needed to understand why this transition is important. Before 2007 and the birth of the cloud computing market we are witnessing today, the on-premise model hosted in large local data centers dominated enterprise storage. Key marketplace play...
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to...

Following a tradition dating back to 2002 at ZapThink and continuing at Intellyx since 2014, it’s time for Intellyx’s annual predictions for the coming year. If you’re a long-time fan, you know we have a twist to the typical annual prediction post: we actually critique our predictions from the previous year. To make things even more interesting, Charlie and I switch off, judging the other’s predictions. And now that he’s been with Intellyx for more than a year, this Cortex represents my first ...
"Grape Up leverages Cloud Native technologies and helps companies build software using microservices, and work the DevOps agile way. We've been doing digital innovation for the last 12 years," explained Daniel Heckman, of Grape Up in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Toyota Production System, a world-renowned production system is based on the "complete elimination of all waste". The "Toyota Way", grounded on continuous improvement dates to the 1860s. The methodology is widely proven to be successful yet there are still industries within and tangential to manufacturing struggling to adopt its core principles: Jidoka: a process should stop when an issue is identified prevents releasing defective products
We seem to run this cycle with every new technology that comes along. A good idea with practical applications is born, then both marketers and over-excited users start to declare it is the solution for all or our problems. Compliments of Gartner, we know it generally as “The Hype Cycle”, but each iteration is a little different. 2018’s flavor will be serverless computing, and by 2018, I mean starting now, but going most of next year, you’ll be sick of it. We are already seeing people write such...
Defining the term ‘monitoring’ is a difficult task considering the performance space has evolved significantly over the years. Lately, there has been a shift in the monitoring world, sparking a healthy debate regarding the definition and purpose of monitoring, through which a new term has emerged: observability. Some of that debate can be found in blogs by Charity Majors and Cindy Sridharan.
It’s “time to move on from DevOps and continuous delivery.” This was the provocative title of a recent article in ZDNet, in which Kelsey Hightower, staff developer advocate at Google Cloud Platform, suggested that “software shops should have put these concepts into action years ago.” Reading articles like this or listening to talks at most DevOps conferences might make you think that we’re entering a post-DevOps world. But vast numbers of organizations still struggle to start and drive transfo...
Let's do a visualization exercise. Imagine it's December 31, 2018, and you're ringing in the New Year with your friends and family. You think back on everything that you accomplished in the last year: your company's revenue is through the roof thanks to the success of your product, and you were promoted to Lead Developer. 2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for your company because you have the tools and insight to scale as quickly as demand requires. You're a happy human, and it's not just...
