Intended Use Statements
Intended use (according to CE) The b-box plus is a stand-alone software intended to determine the breast density classification from mammography data and to classify mammography data with respect to their diagnostic quality and pathological abnormalities. The results are provided to the qualified medical user (the radiologist) who shall decide about further steps, such as the acquisition of new images or the supplementation with other imaging modalities (e.g. ultrasound). Qualified medical users shall review, and release the outcome of the software. If necessary, the qualified medical users shall edit the software outcome before release. After release, the findings can then be directly translated to a compatible history file for the Institutional Picture Archiving-System (PAC-System), and presented in a statistical overview (dashboard) accessible to the qualified medical users.
