FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Stony Brook University’s virtual pancreatography technology, which uses imaging information to identify cysts and applies a first and second classifier to sort them into multiple cystic lesion types. This technology improves the reliability and objectivity of differentiating cystic lesions in CT scans, assisting radiologists with their knowledge. Currently, there are no CAD procedures for classifying pancreatic cystic lesion types, making this technology highly beneficial.
This technology is applicable to virtual pancreatography and medical imaging. The pancreatic cyst diagnostics market is projected to experience growth, primarily due to the increasing prevalence of pancreatic cysts. Research shows that pancreatic cysts are present in approximately 10% to 20% of individuals over the age of 60.
Stony Brook University’s virtual pancreatography technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit?
