  • DeepDx® Prostate

    Clinically validated AI Software for Prostate Cancer. The software detects cancer and grades its severity on whole slide images (WSIs) of H&E-stained prostate core needle biopsy samples, based on the Gleason scoring system (most common assessment of prostate cancer severity and prognosis). It generates colored overlays of Gleason patterns 3, 4, and 5. The areas of each Gleason pattern out of the total tumor area are automatically quantified as well as the tumor-to-tissue ratio. Automatic measurements of the total tissue and the total tumor lengths are also provided. It takes only 30 seconds per core to get AI analysis. In a clinical validation, its performance was demonstrated to provide specialist-level support. The sensitivity and specificity of the software on detecting cancer were 99% and 94% respectively.

Deep Bio’s AI Support for Cancer Diagnosis has been Designated as an Innovative Product by the Korean Public Procurement Service

Jul 26, 2022

This designation marks the Korean government’s recognition of innovation for DeepDx-Prostate Pro Deep Bio, a pioneer in medical AI for digital pathology and cancer diagnostics software, announced that its AI solution for grading the severity of prostate cancer, DeepDx-Prostate Pro, has been officially designated as an ‘Innovative Product (Fast Track II)’ by the Korean Public Procurement Service (PPS) in the bio-health sector, a public recognition of product excellence and innovation. ‘Innovative Product Designation Program’ is a government program that aims to foster the development of innovative technologies and is operated by the Korean PPS, providing public access to breakthrough technologies. To select Innovative Products, a committee made up of the Korea PPS and experts in each field, such as bio-health, future automobiles, carbon neutrality, evaluate each registrant based on several criteria including public value and innovation. As a result, Deep Bio can now execute a purchase agreement with the PPS, and the product can be registered in the Public Procurement Market. With the registration of DeepDx-Prostate Pro in the Public Procurement Market through this designation, the software as a medical device is now available to more than 300K national- and public institutions for purchase. With this opportunity, Deep Bio is expected to lay the groundwork for market expansion as well as demonstrate the clinical utility of its software. Related Posts “We are delighted that the Korean PPS designated DeepDx-Prostate Pro as an Innovative Product. It represents an official government recognition of the innovation of our state-of-the-art technology. Through this, potential clients at national- and public institutions can better access Deep Bio’s groundbreaking software for purchase”, said Sun-Woo Kim, CEO of Deep Bio. “We also hope that this will be a great opportunity to confirm the robust performance and value of our software when implemented into real clinical workflows,” added he. DeepDx-Prostate Pro is a deep learning-based medical software that assists the histopathological diagnosis of prostate cancer by analyzing the Whole Slide Image (WSI) of the prostate needle biopsies. It automatically classifies the severity of prostate cancer based on the Gleason grading system, which is the most widely-used method for evaluating the degree of differentiation of prostate cancer tissues. The software has received Korea MFDS (Ministry of Food and Drug Safety) approval as a Class III medical device in November 2021. In a clinical validation study, the analysis by the software showed high concordance with the reference standard established by experienced board-certified pathologists. In addition, the software improved workflows by significantly reducing time spent by pathologists on analysis of each slide. The study results were published in Modern Pathology. Focusing not only on AI diagnostics but also on R&D, Deep Bio has been presenting its novel research results in prestigious science and technology journals including the Cancers Journal, npj Digital Medicine, as well as in various international conferences and events. The company also continues to build its global presence through overseas digital pathology solution providers in the US, Europe, and India, as well as conducting research cooperation with Stanford Medical School, Harvard Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and other top research institutions in the US.
