About TexRAD® technology
TexRAD® is the Company's patented quantitative image texture analysis technology for diagnostic radiological scans. The technology has the potential to assist clinicians in diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of patients with cancer, or other disease indications, and is currently installed in over 50 of the world's leading research institutions across Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia. By analysing the texture features in computerised tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance images (MRI) and positron emission tomography scans (PET/CT), TexRAD's quantitative imaging capabilities provide clinicians with additional, visually imperceptible information to make better decisions in order to improve patient outcomes.
TexRAD® research to date has shown great potential in many different oncological and non-oncological sites. For example, papers presented at RSNA 2017 focused on liver, pancreatic, kidney, cervical, oral, genitourinary, head & neck, thyroid, neuroendocrine and endometrial cancers, as well as gastrointestinal stromal tumours, gliomas, thymic-epithelial neoplasms and carotid-plaques. On 20 November 2017, Feedback announced the CE marked release of TexRAD® Lung, a "software only" Class 1 medical device, to help advance lung cancer diagnosis.
