Award List:

Fractal Algorithms for Compressing Chest-Imaging Data

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Alan I. Penn
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The research will result in a computerized system that uses fractal algorithms for compressing and decompressing digitized images of chest x-rays and analyzing recurrent geometric patterns. Utilizing a combination of general purpose fractal compression with customized fractal algorithms for… More

STATISTICAL SURFACE FRACTAL ANALYZER OF BREAST CANCER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Alan I. Penn
Award Amount: $99,822.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (Verbatim from the Applicant's Abstract): The applicants will develop statistical SURFACE fractal dimension (S-fd) features, which will discriminate benign from malignant breast masses on MRI and mammographic images. S-fd features derived from three… More

Computer-aided decision model for interpreting breast MR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Alan I. Penn
Award Amount: $1,918,350.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this project is to develop, evaluate and commercialize a computer-aided-diagnosis (CAD) system that supports an enhanced decision model for interpreting breast MR images. The proposed system will enable clinicians to more readily incorporate… More

Add-on module for ONCAD for diagnosing infiltrating lobular carcinoma

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $100,058.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aim of this study is to develop an add-on module for the ONCAD breast MRI CAD system that will provide radiologists with additional assistance when they have suspicion of the presence of infiltrating lobula r carcinoma (ILC). The proposed research… More
