A cloud-based decision support solution for diagnostic and prognostication of prostate cancer

About CADESS™

CADESS™ will help determine who can live with prostate cancer and who requires surgery to survive

CADESS Medical was founded in 2016 with the mission to improve patient outcome and reduce healthcare costs for prostate cancer by delivering innovative digital pathology decision support solutions.

We offer CADESS™ - a cloud-based decision support system for hospital and commercial pathology laboratories involved in diagnosis and prognostication of prostate cancer.

CADESS™ is based on digital state-of-the-art imaging analysis software technology and helps determine who can live with prostate cancer and who requires aggressive treatment to survive

  • CADESS™ offers improved diagnostic accuracy resulting in reduced patient suffering and lower treatment costs.
  • Fast and accurate identification of malignant glands in tissue images helps pathologists determine the aggressiveness of the cancer.
  • CADESS™ is based on the collective opinion of thirteen internationally prominent pathologists.
  • First version offered as cloud-based pay-per-use service solution.

Technology

CADESS™ is a cloud-based decision support system based on mature technology

CADESS™ runs on a cloud GPU-platform infrastructure to enable cost-effective and scalable software as a service. OpenSeaDragon gives an interface similar to that of GoogleMaps, with efficient pan and zoom which pathologists expect from their experience with microscopes. The client devices may use any modern browser.

RESEARCH

CADESS™ is based on ten years of solid research at Uppsala University


STAINING

Our stain is absorbed by the connective tissue surrounding the glands in the prostate and identifies the boundaries of these glands.

DATABASE

A tissue database consensus-graded by 13 prominent pathologists in seven countries.

IMAGE ANALYSIS

Advanced image analysis techniques are used to segment the prostate glands from the surrounding tissue.

KNOWLEDGE-BASED FEATURES

Features in the prostate glandular architecture known to be linked to cancer are extracted from the tissue data.

DEEP LEARNING

Features extracted by deep learning techniques complement the known types of features.

CLASSIFIER

A sophisticated classifier has been trained on the glandular features in the consensus-graded database.
