  • The study investigated the impact of using Quantib® Prostate on inter-reader agreement in PI-RADS scoring at various levels of image quality and reader confidence among novice readers.
  • For less experienced readers, using Quantib® Prostate improved the inter-reader agreement and the diagnostic accuracy. The researchers concluded that using Quantib, along with PACS, can benefit less experienced readers, especially when image quality and reader confidence are low.
