iCad partners with Google Health on AI-assisted breast cancer screening

Google Health will use its artificial intelligence tools to detect breast cancer through a new integration with medtech company iCad. 

The AI technology will be used within iCad's Profound Breast Health Suite for 2D Mammography. The tool analyzes mammography images and alerts clinicians of any potential abnormalities, according to an Aug. 14 iCad news release.

The partnership builds off a November 2022 development and commercialization agreement between iCad and Google Health.

"Combining Google's AI technology with our leading-edge ProFound Breast Health Suite of AI solutions will enhance our technology and expand access to the technology to millions of women and providers worldwide," iCad CEO and President Dana Brown said in the release. "Furthermore, Google has already been exploring the use of its technology as an independent reader, with extremely promising results."
