A new intelligent imaging technology automates the patient positioning process for X-ray examinations to create a much easier and safer workflow for both patients and technicians.

The technology launched by Mireye Imaging Inc. (Vancouver, BC, Canada) will eliminate the need for manual measurements and body part alignment, which currently contribute to taking up much of the technologists’ time during the imaging process and risk of repeat exposure if done incorrectly. By changing this process, Mireye’s technology will allow more patients to be served under a safer environment with a greater chance of producing images that allow for successful diagnosis.

Mireye has focused on both software and hardware development to create its intelligent solutions. Dedicated software programming with AI and machine learning are an integral part of Mireye’s research and development. An immense amount of data had to be examined and processed just to develop a single function of the programming. Hardware development was also concentrated on to ensure the programming had the right environment and equipment to become a stable and viable full solution. Incorporating wireless communications between all components allow for an extremely advanced user experience. The technology is currently being offered as an upgrade for existing medical imaging systems.

“Our purpose is to create extremely advanced technology and apply it to the medical imaging process so that it may be as automated as possible, creating the safest and most effective part of patient care,” said Derek Sexton, CEO of Mireye. “What you can imagine for medical imaging developments in the next several years, we want to make happen now.”
