September 20, 2013 -- GE Healthcare is pointing to a recent study that showed radiologists using automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) had high interreader agreement.

In research published in Academic Radiology, GE's somo.v ABUS system yielded statistically significant interreader agreement when used in combination with mammography in women with dense breasts, compared with mammography alone, according to University of Chicago researchers (Acad Radiol, July 2013, Vol. 20:7, pp. 847-853).

The trial was used as the basis for the system's premarket approval (PMA) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by developer U-Systems, which was acquired by GE in November 2012.
