EDDA Technology

October 30, 2008 -- (Booth 203) Look for this Princeton, NJ, company to highlight an enterprise-based version of its computer-aided detection (CAD) software for analyzing chest studies acquired on computed and digital radiography systems.

IQQA-Chest Enterprise is designed to make CAD functionality available wherever there is a PACS workstation. Most CAD advocates believe enterprise-based CAD offers smoother workflow compared to CAD applications available only on specialized workstations.

The software offers real-time interactive tools to support physicians in identifying, confirming, and quantifying lung nodules. Look for EDDA to highlight a study published this year by van Beek and colleagues in Academic Radiology that showed that radiologists working with IQQA-Chest increased their sensitivity for nodule detection from 63.8% without the software to 92.7% with IQQA-Chest assistance.

IQQA-Chest Enterprise can be installed within a hospital's existing PACS network without code-level or application programming interface (API) integration. EDDA also is offering the software under a floating-license program.
