Medicsight’s core technology is the ColonCAD algorithm that is integrated (using application protocol interface (API) technology) into visualization workstations for radiologists to use when reviewing a patient’s colon computer tomography (CT) scan data. The computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm assists the radiologist as they search for polyps in the CT scan image data. The radiologist uses the visualization software to review the patient’s CT scan images on the screen and searches for polyps (potentially pre-cancerous lesions on the wall of the colon). After a full review, the radiologist then activates the Medicsight ColonCAD software, which immediately displays CAD marks on the images, drawing the radiologist’s attention to potential polyps and other regions of interest. The radiologist then assesses each marked region in order to make the final decision as to the presence or absence of a poly p.
In addition to the computer aided detection! software applications, Medicsight has developed an automated carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation device, MedicCO2LON. A patient undergoing a CT colon scan requires the colon to be insufflated (distended) with either CO2 gas or room air administered prior to the acquisition of their CT colonography images. MedicCO2LON is designed to provide insufflation, for the acquisition of images from the CT colonography examination.
The Company competes with GE, Hitachi, Philips, Siemens and Toshiba.
