Carestream Health (Rochester, NY, USA), a provider of medical imaging systems and IT solutions, has joined Zebra Medical Vision’s (Kibbutz Shefayim, Israel) AI1 campaign, which allows customers to pay a flat fee per scan for unlimited access to artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms. The new deep learning engine will be integrated into the Carestream Clinical Collaboration Platform offering to assist radiologists in delivering more comprehensive clinical services across a variety of clinical domains.
Zebra Medical Vision uses AI and deep learning to create and provide next generation products and services for the healthcare industry. The company’s Imaging Analytics Platform can automatically detect various medical findings in imaging scans. Its current capabilities include automatic detection of liver, lung, cardiovascular and bone disease, with new capabilities covering breast and lung cancer, brain trauma, hypertension and other clinical areas being constantly released.
By integrating Zebra-Med’s findings into the Diagnostic Carestream Workstation, radiologists can seamlessly include them in their reading and reporting workflow. This automated assistance results in a more comprehensive, quantitative and consistent reporting, thereby improving the output of radiologists and assisting in an overall improvement in patient care.
“We have been successfully collaborating with Zebra for the past year, and this marks another important milestone in our ability to deliver the broadest AI solution in the market today to both existing and new customers,” said Ludovic D’Aprea, Global GM of Healthcare Information Solutions for Carestream.
“Carestream is a leader in Radiology solutions across many countries where the AI1 solution can make a significant impact on patient care,” added Elad Benjamin, Co-Founder and CEO of Zebra Medical Vision. “We’re excited by the opportunities this provides to empower radiologists and help them meet the day-to-day challenges they face.”
Carestream also sponsored the Machine Learning Showcase at the 2017 edition of the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting (RSNA) held in Chicago from November 26 to December 1.
