Innovative virtual colonoscopy solution includes CAD

GRANBY and ST. EUSTACHE, Que. – CADENS Imaging has signed a three-year agreement with Christie InnoMed, of St. Eustache (near Montreal), for the exclusive distribution of its CADENS Colon virtual colonoscopy solution in Canada.

CADENS Colon is a virtual colonoscopy solution designed to support radiologists performing non-invasive colorectal cancer screening. “Its addition to Christie InnoMed’s medical imaging product lines really complements our portfolio by closing the loop on the Computed Tomography Colonography (CTC) examination workflow,” said André Dugas, President and Chief Operating Officer at Christie InnoMed.

“This novel and very promising solution integrates with any DICOM-compliant CT scan and with any PACS,” said Dugas. “Along with its 3D volume rendering, innovative measurement tool and comprehensive reporting function, CADENS Colon provides a complete workflow solution for CTC.

“This solution also provides a unique computer-aided detection (CAD) system and an electronic colon cleansing tool, very different from what is currently available on the market. CADENS will address requirements in every imaging facility setting, from the private practice to university hospitals and in multi-site, regional settings,” added Dugas.

For CADENS Imaging, the benefits of this partnership are very clear. Hugo Douville, President and Chief Executive Officer of the company explained, “This agreement will allow CADENS Imaging to expand its sales network across Canada, and to benefit from Christie InnoMed’s excellent customer service.”
