Medical technology company iCAD has received a device licence from Health Canada for its ProFound Risk version 2.0, a personalised breast cancer risk assessment solution.

Suitable for both 2D and 3D mammography, ProFound Risk leverages artificial intelligence for the delivery of precise, personalised and efficient risk assessments for each woman in the next one to two years.

It can be assessed even if they currently show no signs of breast cancer in their latest mammogram.

The technology combines various risk factors, including age, the density of the breast and subtle mammographic characteristics and enables medical professionals to customise screening and intervention plans according to each patient’s risk profile.

This approach provides a more personalised and comprehensive method for detecting and assessing breast cancer risks.

iCAD president and CEO Dana Brown said: “This regulatory approval further validates the clinical efficacy of our technology, paving the way for its use in healthcare facilities across Canada, where breast cancer accounts for approximately 25% of new cases of cancer and 13% of all cancer deaths in Canadian women.
