Vienna, Austria , March 4 – A new research technology was profiled today during scientific sessions at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria. Densitas Research Edition assesses mammographic breast density using ‘for presentation’ digital mammography images.

In a presentation focused specifically on the technology itself, study results using 1,823 images showed excellent agreement between Densitas Research Edition density measures and radiologists’ visual assessment. This concept is also known as ‘face validity’. The research also confirmed the internal reliability of Densitas Research Edition, or its ability to consistently generate the same, valid results repeatedly.

“Densitas Research Edition provides consistent, reliable and reproducible results,” said Mohamed Abdolell, CEO of Densitas and a biostatistician. “This gives us the ability to address a key challenge for radiologists who visually assess mammographic density: inter and intra-operator variability.”

Currently, the standard way to assess mammographic density is a radiologist’s visual assessment. Such subjective evaluation is prone to poor reproducibility between two radiologists reading the same image. As well, even the same radiologist could assess an image at different times and report a different result. Densitas Research Edition standardizes the assessment of mammographic density.

Moncton, March 3 -- RtTech is proud to announce the release of a new, cloud-based version of its award-winning real-time KPI Calculator software, RtDuet. Offered on a monthly subscription basis, RtDuet Cloud is primarily directed towards small to medium manufacturers.

RtDuet Cloud allows smaller manufacturing companies to compete on the same level as larger corporations by implementing the robust software solution as an operating expense, rather than waiting to incorporate into future capital expenditures.

"We wanted to help all companies improve their plant efficiencies, not just the large and wealthy ones," says RtTech Software CEO Pablo Asiron. We took a proven solution and adapted it into a subscription-based service to allow smaller companies to reap the rewards. This is the way all software is moving. We needed to adapt in order to compete, and we're happy to have been first out of the gate."

RtDuet Cloud offers manufacturers the same features and benefits as its namesake, RtDuet. The significant differences are reduced installation time and subscription-based pricing.
