Transpara by ScreenPoint

The software solution that will change the way you read mammograms

A Challenging Task

With more than 50,000 breast cancers diagnosed in France and 4.4 million mammography exams performed every year, Breast cancer screening is challenging, even to the expert eye. Indeed, not missing cancers, while not calling too many False Positives, is a delicate mission.

What if an AI solution could automatically categorizes mammograms more likely to have cancerous lesions?

Trained on over 1 million images, utilizing revolutionary deep learning technology, Transpara automatically identifies suspicious areas in 2D and 3D mammograms.
Interactive decision support, a scientifically-proven method (3), boosts Radiologists reading performance, as opposed to traditional mammography CAD systems.

Based on all findings of the exam, each case is categorized using the innovative Transpara Score, based on its risk of harbouring cancer and can be used to automatically triage exams with confidence.

Expected benefits

  • Optimizing your workflow by allocating your attention to the most complex cases,
  • Increasing your confidence on the low risk cases,
  • Reducing Tomography reading time,
  • Reducing interpretation errors and improving reading performance,
  • Integrating a decision support tool into your workflow – without slowing you down.

30 years of Expertise

Pr Nico Karssemeijer and Sir Mike Brady, two world leading experts in quantitative breast image analysis and computer aided detection, are the co-founders of ScreenPoint Medical.

Nico has been one of the pioneers of computer-aided detection, playing a key role in implementing digital mammography in the European screening programs, by initiating and leading EU funded projects in which breast screening workstations were developed that are marketed today by major vendors. He is a Professor in the Department of Radiology, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
