Meeting Date: 10/24/12-10/24/12

Meeting Details:

On October 24, 2012, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on a premarket approval application supplement to expand the indications for use of the Selenia Dimensions 3D System with C-View Software Module, sponsored by Hologic, Inc. The Selenia Dimensions 3D System is currently approved for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. The screening exam can consist of field digital mammography (FFDM) alone or the combination of FFDM with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). The new C-View Software Module can generate synthetic 2D images from the DBT data. Hologic requests to expand the indications for use to allow the combination of DBT with synthetic 2D images to be used as another exam option for breast cancer screening.

Meeting Date: 4/11/12-4/12/12

Meeting Details:

On April 11, 2012, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information related to a premarket approval application for the Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) scanning device, sponsored by U–Systems, Inc. The ABUS scanning device is intended to increase breast cancer detection in asymptomatic dense-breasted women following a negative screening mammogram. On April 12, 2012, during session I, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the 515(i) order issued by FDA on April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16214), for breast transilluminators, one of the remaining preamendments class III devices. On July 18, 1995 (60 FR 36639), FDA published a Final Rule that misbranded breast transilluminators and effectively placed them in class III based on the recommendation of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Devices Panel, which concluded there were no published studies or clinical data demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of this device. The committee discussion will include a review of the present literature to assess the current knowledge of breast transilluminators and determine if sufficient safety and effectiveness data are available to support reclassification of breast transilluminators.

Meeting Details:

On March 4 and 5, 2008, the committee intends to discuss and make recommendations about computer aided detection and diagnosis (CAD) devices for radiological images, e.g., mammograms, chest x-rays, and computed tomography (CT) images of the lungs or colon. There will be a general discussion focusing on the general methodologies for CAD, including how CAD devices are used in clinical decision-making, how the devices are tested, and the information needed to properly assess their safety and effectiveness. The general discussion will be followed by specific discussions related to mammography CAD devices, colon CAD devices, and lung CAD devices. These discussions will include how the different types of CAD devices are used and the literature published regarding these devices, with focus on testing issues related to the different devices.

Meeting Date: 4/30/15-5/1/15

Meeting Details:

On April 30, 2015, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. These devices are considered preamendments devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Devices Amendments became effective. Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Insert),” Product Code EWD, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Circumaural Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Circumaural),” Product Code EWE, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Middle Ear Inflation Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Device, Inflation, Middle Ear,” Product Code MJV, as unclassified under the 510k) premarket notification authority. Tactile Hearing Aid Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Hearing Aid, Tactile,” Product Code LRA, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses are currently regulated under the heading, “Apparatus, Vestibular Analysis,” Product Code LXV, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. FDA is seeking committee input on the risks, safety and effectiveness and the regulatory classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. On May 1, 2015 the committee will discuss key issues related to a potential pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements for modifications to cochlear implants in pediatric patients. These issues are categorized into three broad areas for discussion: 1. Cochlear implant changes (e.g. sound processing features, patient characteristics) that may be suitable for this pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements. 2. Appropriate premarket clinical data requirements to support pre- to post-market shift (e.g. leveraging clinical data from adults and/or older children.) 3. Clinical study design considerations (e.g. study endpoints and test metrics, subject characteristics) for post market studies to confirm safety and effectiveness and inform future labeling.
