Ferrum Health Spotlights Commitment to Prostate Cancer Detection and Awareness during National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Cutting-edge AI Platform Advances Early Detection and Empowers Healthcare Professionals to Improve Prostate Health

During National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Ferrum Health, a leading enterprise imaging AI platform, affirms its commitment to positively impact the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, affecting millions worldwide. Early detection is paramount for successful treatment and outcomes.  With its industry-leading AI validation and orchestration, Ferrum Health partners with Lucida Medical to revolutionize early prostate cancer detection, empowering healthcare professionals to make more informed decisions and improve patient outcomes.

Lucida Medical was founded by Prof. Evis Sala and Dr. Antony Rix in 2019 to support the early detection of cancer using MRI. Prostate Intelligence™ (Pi™) is the company’s first product. Pi™ uses a proprietary software platform based on artificial intelligence (AI) and image processing to identify cancer in prostate MRI scans. 

Pi™ is designed to make radiologists’ work faster and more accurate, helping cancer-free individuals avoid unnecessary investigations and procedures, and improving sensitivity to detect significant diseases so that patients with cancer can get exactly the treatment they need. Pi™ is already CE-certified for use in Europe, and Lucida Medical is working with Ferrum Health to complete approvals for Pi™ in the US during 2024.

“We know too many men whose prostate cancer was found late, resulting in painful treatments that often fail. With Pi™, we aim to help urologists and radiologists find prostate cancer early when most can be completely cured,” said Dr. Antony Rix, CEO of Lucida Medical.

“In our continued effort to make a positive impact on healthcare outcomes, Ferrum Health is dedicated to providing cutting-edge machine learning solutions to aid in the early detection of prostate cancer,” said Dr. Elie Balesh, Medical Director at Ferrum Health. “Our AI platform is designed to support healthcare professionals by analyzing complex medical data, including imaging and patient records, and by providing them with advanced tools to detect and manage prostate cancer more effectively. 

“Because of our validation capabilities for all the tools on our platform, we’ve seen how these AI solutions not only help providers and radiologists deliver care more quickly and efficiently but make a long-term impact on the patient health directly, both on an individual level and at scale,” said Pelu Tran, CEO of Ferrum Health.

Prostate cancer is very curable when detected early. Together Ferrum Health and Lucida Medical are working to improve the outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
