What is Aid in the Fight Against Breast Cancer?

Aid in the Fight Against Breast Cancer is a month long campaign (October 1st - 31st) to fundraise for ProFound Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care. Typically, we host the Celebration of Angels dinner and golf outing, but due to restrictions for public health gatherings, the events have been cancelled this year. We are asking our community to come together to support this cause during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Where is the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Cancer located?

The Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care is in the Thomas Center at Bethesda North Hospital:

10506A Montgomery Road
Cincinnati, OH 45242

Is the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care the first in the region to use ProFound AI?

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an advanced form of computer science that allows computers to learn and work like humans. AI is used in healthcare to help doctors review large amounts of data more quickly and accurately.

How does ProFound AI work?

ProFound AI for DBT acts as another pair of eyes for radiologists reviewing 3D mammography images and is clinically proven to improve cancer detection rate by 8%, while reducing false positives by 7%, compared to 3D mammography alone. Built with the latest in artificial intelligence, it rapidly analyzes each 3D mammogram image, detecting cancers with unrivaled accuracy. It provides crucial information to your doctor and alerts them if suspicious areas may warrant a closer look.
