“It is my pleasure to have joined DetectedX. Radiologists are going to learn the multimodality approach to diagnosis of breast diseases that I explain in my DetectedX lectures. They will learn the most efficient way to view a mammogram, how to succeed in detecting tumours early to correlate the imaging results with histopathology and long-term patient outcome,” said Professor Tabár. “This is the best way of offering women the benefits of early detection and reducing the burden of advanced disease.”
DetectedX was founded to help doctors and radiologists worldwide to diagnose cases of breast cancer, lung cancer, and COVID-19 faster and more accurately. Designed to improve radiologists’ ability to correctly detect breast lesions in 2D and 3D Mammography, the Radiology Online Learning Platform has been shown to improve cancer detection by over 34 percent. DetectedX’s innovative educational technology enables Radiologists to review, in real time, an enriched cohort of 2D mammography and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D mammography) cases with varying levels of difficulty. The on-demand, online training packages provide immediate feedback on reading performance, comparing the user’s classification to the pathology-verified ground truth for each case. The DetectedX intelligent interactive educational technology is currently in use by more than 3,000 users in more than 150 countries.
DetectedX’s Radiology Online Learning Centre, focusing on diagnostic accuracy and driven by artificial intelligence, is revolutionizing disease detection in 150 countries. The on-demand, web-based training platform has been proven to improve the accuracy of diagnosing difficult cases by 34%.
