Volpara, a software firm for early detection of breast cancer, signed a 42-month contract with a US-based company, Radnet Management, Inc.
RadNet is a prominent provider of outpatient imaging services. It operates 353 imaging centres across seven states of the United States.
RadNet to employ Volpara’ s software
Volpara enables clinicians to offer personalised breast care and enhanced risk assessment to patients via its software providing feedback on breast density, dose and quality, and compression.
The agreement will see RadNet execute VHT's Volpara® Analytics™ and Volpara® Risk Pathways™ software throughout its company. Volpara Analytics’ artificial intelligence will continuously oversee mammography quality in 350+ sites of RadNet. Volpara Risk Pathways offers risk-based screening to ensure patients of RadNet have access to essential imaging and genetic testing.
The volume-based contract is expected to be implemented in 2023, and the revenue generated is projected to be material to Volpara.
