Densitas® Inc., a global provider of AI technologies for digital mammography and breast screening, signed an agreement with RAD-AID International to use the Densitas® intellMammo (TM) software platform at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) in Guyana .

The age-adjusted breast cancer death rate in Guyana was 24.36 per 100,000 women in 2018, compared to 17.49 in the United States. To address this inequality, Guyana launched its first public sector breast screening program at the GPHC in 2019 with the support of RAD-AID International. The mammography examinations as part of the program are carried out with a digital mammography unit in the GPHC by a senior radiology technician who has been trained by RAD-AID. RAD-AID is also supporting the training of more half-length portrait technicians in Guyana to increase the impact of the program in the public sector. Senior physicians and assistant physicians in the radiology department at the GPHC receive daily PACS-supported support for interpretation and training by the RAD-AID volunteers in the field of breast imaging. RAD-AID has also introduced a training program for nurses, doctors, technicians and patient carers to help women access these new vital services.

In collaboration with RAD-AID International and GPHC, Densitas® used intellMammo (TM) as part of a joint initiative to support the effectiveness and efficiency of breast cancer screening. The initiative aims to improve early detection by supporting education and training for effective and sustainable breast screening practices.

“In an environment with limited radiological resources, effective patient and process management improves precise breast health through AI-driven clinical decision support,” said Mo Abdolell, CEO of Densitas®. “When integrated into health systems, particularly in underserved regions, AI can pave the way by providing sustainable and scalable population-level solutions that reduce health inequalities and support better quality of care.

The innovative solution from Densitas® for the training of technicians identifies positional errors and integrates training materials for easy access while the patient is still in the examination room. By providing mammography-specific workflows and advanced analyzes for comprehensive and continuous quality assurance processes, technicians are empowered to improve their efficiency and performance. This can have a significant impact on the quality of care, especially in regions with staff shortages and / or insufficient resources.

“We thank Densitas® for working with RAD-AID to help hospitals with limited resources test, deploy and adopt AI safely and effectively,” said Daniel Mollura, President and CEO of RAD-AID International. “In understaffed regions where skilled radiology technicians, breast health nurses and radiologists are in short supply, RAD-AID’s collaboration with Densitas® is helping hospitals increase the quality, safety and efficiency of medical imaging in much-needed breast cancer screening programs. “
