Efficiently Incorporating AI Into the Clinical Workflow
QuantX is the industry’s first computer-aided diagnosis platform incorporating artificial intelligence for the evaluation of breast abnormalities. QuantX combines machine learning and advanced image analysis with a deep database of historical cases to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast abnormalities using MR image data.
Deep Database of Known Outcomes
Advanced Machine Learning
Quantitative Image Analysis
QuantX is based on more than two decades of scientific research from the laboratory of Maryellen Giger, Ph.D. The technology is based on a deep portfolio of intellectual property licensed from The University of Chicago.
AI-Based Decision Support & Clinical Toolset
QuantX Advanced includes a robust set of features designed to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast abnormalities using MR image data. QuantX Advanced includes two proprietary, AI-based features: QI Score™ and Similar Case Compare.
QuantX Advanced automatically registers images and segments and analyzes user-selected regions of interest (ROI). QuantX Advanced extracts image data from the ROI to provide volumetric analysis and computer analytics based on morphological and enhancement characteristics.
These imaging (or radiomic) features are synthesized by an artificial intelligence algorithm into a single value, the QI Score™, a clinical metric that is correlated to the likelihood of malignancy.
In multi-focal cancer cases, QuantX Advanced can combine multiple lesions and deliver an aggregate QI Score that may be used to evaluate overall tumor burden.
Similar Case Compare
The QI Score™ is analyzed relative to a database of reference abnormalities with known ground truth. For the QI Score™ and component radiomic features, QuantX Advanced provides comparative analysis to lesions with known outcomes using an image atlas and histogram display format.
The adjacent image shows the proprietary Similar Case Compare feature. Up to 45 cases from the reference library can be displayed for each lesion that is analyzed.

[a] QI Score™ is a metric related to likelihood of malignancy. A comprehensive set of lesion descriptors for volumetrics, morphology, and kinetics is synthesized by an artificial intelligence algorithm into a QI Score™ for each lesion.
[b] For the QI Score™ and component radiomic features, QuantX Advanced provides Similar Case Compare: comparative analysis to lesions with known outcomes using an image atlas and histogram display format.
QuantX is indicated for evaluation of patients presenting for high-risk screening, diagnostic imaging workup, or evaluation of extent of known disease. In cases where multiple abnormalities are present, QuantX can be used to assess each abnormality independently.
QuantX may also be used as an image viewer of multi-modality digital images, including ultrasound and mammography. The software also includes tools that allow users to measure and document images, and output in a structured report. QuantX is not intended for primary interpretation of digital mammography images.
