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)

in every imaging facility setting, from the private practice to
university hospitals and in multi-site, regional settings,” added Dugas.
