The first ever FDA-approved AI-enabled X-ray system that is designed specifically for cardiology labs represents the next generational leap in image-guided X-ray systems.

Omega Medical Imaging LLC (Sanford, FL, USA) has launched the Soteria.AI image-guided cardiology system that combines the newest, most advanced technologies in medical imaging. The system is named after Soteria who is the Greek goddess of safety and salvation, deliverance, and preservation from harm. Soteria.AI delivers safety and function with state-of-the-art image processing and unmatched image quality.

Featuring an innovative design, Soteria.AI blends performance, reliability, and safety into a single system. An AI-enabled automatic ROI drives an ultra-fast secondary collimator that goes beyond mere filtering to allow Soteria.AI to reduce dose by up to ~84% while delivering spectacular image quality. Its patented design delivers the projections and patient access previously reserved for much larger, more costly ceiling-mounted systems.

Soteria.AI provides several advantages that conventional cardiology systems cannot such as proven radiation protection for patients and staff, patented C-Arm design that delivers ceiling-mounted performance, and superior image processing and quality.

“Soteria.AI introduces a new modality to cardiac imaging that creates a higher standard of care in interventional systems,” said Brian Fleming, President and CEO of Omega Medical Imaging. “AI-guided ROI systems bring safety and superior imaging to the lab and that’s a win for everyone – the hospital, the doctors, and the patient.”
