ADVANCED DATA-DRIVEN DIAGNOSTICS
QUANTITATIVE DETECTION OF CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD)
Help Your Patients Make The Right Decisions
Lung Density Analysis™ applies big data analysis to paired inspiratory / expiratory chest CT studies to provide visualization and quantification of lung regions with abnormal tissue density. Functional LDA is the only fully-automated, regulatory cleared image analysis providing a complete mapping of normal lung, air-trapping and areas of persistent low density (< -950 HU, which may be indicative of emphysema2) in a combined image to help visualize the components of COPD. LDA provides a full 3D DICOM series with density overlays for detailed interpretation and a quantitative report of density categories by lung region, enabling data-based decisions for personalized care.
LUNG CANCER SCREENING, INSPIRATION ANALYSIS, AND PATIENT LUNGMAP™
FDA and Health Canada cleared, CE Mark certified
More than 9 million current and former smokers are eligible for Lung Cancer screening in the U.S. LDA Inspiration Analysis for Lung Screening and basic COPD assessment provides rapid, automated quantification of areas < -950 HU (which may be indicative of emphysema2) based on a standard inspiratory chest CT. Inspiration Analysis includes Imbio Noise Reduction Technology (NRT) to aid quantification and visualization of low dose scans, and also includes Imbio’s Patient LungMap™ report to aid smoking cessation counseling.
AI-DRIVEN DETECTION OF CORONARY ARTERIAL CALCIFICATION
HALO Dx-Imbio Lung Portfolio
Checking for calcium build-up in the heart’s arteries is critical to identify patients at increased risk for heart disease. Halo-Imbio's deep-learning based CAC analysis is trained to assess gated or ungated CT scans, and can analyze low dose CT scans as a component of lung cancer screening programs.
CAC analysis identifies both potential positive CAC findings as well as false positive artifacts, and provides an overall CAC score.
CAC is coming soon for research or investigational use prior to regulatory filing.
LUNG DENSITY ANALYSIS VERSUS STANDARD CLINICAL ASSESSMENT
Why is Functional Analysis Important For The Quantitative Detection of Emphysema?
COPD is a highly heterogeneous condition and simple lung function tests may not provide the required information on individual lung condition.
Anytime clinicians would like to more fully understand their patient - LDA provides a personalized, comprehensive report. Figure shows significant variation in percent emphysema across patients with similar GOLD scores and FEV values from standard assessment.
Impact of Low Dose CT Screening on Smoking Cessation
What is the key question?
▸ What is the effect on smoking cessation of taking part in the UK randomised pilot trial of low-dose CT lung screening?
What is the bottom line?
▸ CT lung cancer screening does not appear to falsely reassure smokers or reduce their motivation to stop smoking.
Why read on?
▸ For clinicians and policy makers who are considering implementation of stratified (ie, high-risk) lung cancer screening, this study adds to evidence suggesting that integrating CT screening with evidence-based smoking cessation interventions could prompt quitting in
motivated high-risk smokers.
