iCAD announced that new research supporting the clinical value of ProFound AI for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis was presented at the Society of Breast Imaging Symposium, April 9-11, and at the National Consortium of Breast Centers Annual Interdisciplinary Breast Center Conference, April 16-19. Emily Conant, MD, Professor and Division Chief of Breast Imaging at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, presented findings from a retrospective analysis involving ProFound AI for DBT in a presentation titled "Feasibility of automated identification of low-likelihood of cancer cases in digital breast tomosynthesis screening," at the SBI Symposium. At the NCoBC Interdisciplinary Breast Center Conference, Mark Traill, MD, University of Michigan Health, presented findings from a study titled "Correlation between BI-RADS Assessment Categories and Artificial Intelligence Case Scores," which was a winner in the "Breast Disease Diagnosis and Management" category. According to study findings presented by Conant at the SBI Symposium, ProFound AI for DBT accurately identified 33.4% of normal screening DBT exams with no cancers being missed, based solely on the ProFound AI Case Score. When researchers also factored in breast density and age, ProFound AI identified 58.6% of normal cases with no false negatives. The study was conducted to evaluate the thresholds at which the ProFound AI system could be used for triaging DBT exams to reach a minimum rate of false negatives per 1,000 screened in an enriched dataset of 506 biopsy-proven cancer cases and 1,293 non-cancer cases with 320 days of negative follow-up. A consecutive series of cases were collected from 18 sites in the United States and three sites in France. In addition, new data presented by Mark Traill at the NCoBC Interdisciplinary Breast Center Conference highlights the comparison of ProFound AI Case Scores to BI-RADS assessment categories determined by a single radiologist without using AI in a retrospective analysis. Researchers used ProFound AI on 890 consecutive DBT studies and 50 consecutive cases with biopsy-proven breast cancer detected with DBT. Results showed a strong positive correlation between a ProFound AI Case Score of less than 60 percent and patients assessed as likely to be normal, while most of the biopsy-proven cancers had a Case Score of greater than 60%.

Airbnb CEO tells CNBC company will need millions more hosts to meet demand » 12:2204/1604/16/21
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky…
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky told CNBC that the company will need to add millions of new hosts to accommodate guests as travel picks up as the COVID-19 pandemic begins to subside. "To meet the demand over the coming years, we're going to need millions more hosts," Chesky said on CNBC's "TechCheck." "I think that we probably will have a high cost problem where there will probably be more guests coming to Airbnb than we'll have hosts for, because ... we think there's going to be a travel rebound coming that's unlike anything we've ever seen," the CEO added. "We are working our hardest to get more hosts on the platform." Reference Link
