The world's first commercial head and neck deep learning medical imaging solution from Aidoc (Tel-Aviv, Israel), an AI startup utilizing deep learning to augment radiologists' workflow and highlight anomalous cases, has received CE (Conformité Européenne) marking, allowing for its widespread commercialization in Europe.
Aidoc utilizes advanced innovations in deep learning and artificial intelligence to augment radiology, with the goal of cutting healthcare costs without sacrificing quality results. The company’s solution analyzes all relevant imaging and clinical data, providing radiologists with highly accurate detection, streamlining workflow and breaking through bottlenecks by allowing them to focus on the diagnosis.
Aidoc's solution augments radiologists' workflow through its ability to comprehensively detect abnormalities in imaging of the head and neck, an anatomical area responsible for a major portion of medical images. Radiologists can now perform smart optimization of their worklist by prioritizing cases based on AI medical image analysis in conjunction with other clinically available data. Aidoc's solution is agnostic to radiologists' incumbent software, integrating seamlessly and providing immediate results.
"The amount of medical imaging - especially CT and MR scans - is increasing dramatically, but the number of radiologists has plateaued, creating unsustainable bottlenecks and making the radiologist's already complex work even more challenging," said Aidoc CEO Elad Walach. "Our technology can have a monumental impact augmenting the radiology workflow, aimed at more cost-effective treatment for medical centers and practices, and the healthcare system as a whole. With the CE mark, we have a unique opportunity to update outdated technology for the benefit of hundreds of millions of Europeans."
