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 Date: 10/22/20-10/22/20

.

Meeting Details:

On October 22, 2020, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in Medical Devices.” Specifically, we will discuss the composition of the datasets on which the software “learns”, components of the device information shared with patients, and factors that impact patient trust in the technology. Large clinical datasets are used to train and improve AI/ML algorithms, allowing transformational improvements in the diagnosis, clinical decision making, and treatment of patients. Devices using AI/ML technology will transform healthcare delivery by increasing efficiency of key processes in the treatment of patients. Health products powered by AI/ML are streaming into our lives, from virtual doctor apps to wearable sensors and drugstore chatbots to algorithms for detecting cancer in mammography and interpretations of chest X rays. Despite the rapid advancement and integration, AI/ML systems may have algorithmic biases, limited generalizability, and lack transparency in their assumptions based on potential limitations of training datasets. The recommendations provided by the committee will address the importance of including various demographic groups in AI/ML algorithm development. The recommendations will also address the impact of the user interface and transparency including what information and how the information about the devices could be communicated to foster patient trust in the AI/ML devices.
