TeraRecon (Foster City, CA, USA), a provider of advanced visualization solutions, has entered into a distribution partnership with EnvoyAI (Cambridge, MA, USA) to sell and market the EnvoyAI platform. The platform includes a content-rich artificial intelligence (AI) marketplace, called the EnvoyAI Exchange, as well as a suite of market-ready AI-enablement technologies aimed at fostering broader access and clinical use of medical imaging algorithms within busy radiology practices.
TeraRecon provides advanced visualization, image viewing and post-processing solutions that leverage AI to improving radiology workflow through personalized automation features for increased efficiency. EnvoyAI provides a developer platform, integrations, and an API interface for algorithm developers, technology partners, and end-users. It facilitates the streamlined distribution and hospital implementation of trained machine learning algorithms via a vendor neutral distribution platform. The platform allows users anywhere to access cloud-based algorithms without requiring access to the algorithm code or training data to protect PHI and developer intellectual property. EnvoyAI also works with distribution partners to make algorithms on the platform available to a very wide footprint of hospitals and, ultimately, to physicians.
As a distributor of EnvoyAI, TeraRecon will offer instant access to the platform containing more than 35 algorithms and initially focus on driving sales on two FDA-cleared algorithms from Imbio and icometrix, as well as one of its own cleared algorithms. Imbio offers lung density reporting for COPD analysis with chest CT scans. The Imbio CT Lung Density Analysis software provides reproducible CT values for pulmonary tissue, which is essential for providing quantitative support for diagnosis and follow up examinations. icometrix offers icobrain, an FDA-cleared brain MRI tool that is intended for automatic labeling, visualization and volumetric quantification of segmentable brain structures from a set of MR images. The software is intended to automate the current manual process of identifying, labeling and quantifying the volumes of segmentable brain structures identified on MR images. TeraRecon offers iNtuition Time Density Analysis for CT, which supports stroke triage workflow by producing colorized parametric maps of the brain from time-resolved, thin-slice CT scans of the head with contrast, including CBF, CBV, MTT, TTP, TOT, RT map types.
“The automated outputs from Imbio and icometrix elevate the standard of care without creating additional work for radiologists,” said Jeff Sorenson, President and CEO of TeraRecon. “The combined workflows achieved by TeraRecon and EnvoyAI deliver these results in a fast, flexible, and extensible way allowing our customers to easily introduce AI into their medical imaging enterprise.”
