VIDA Diagnostics, Inc. (Coralville, IA, USA), a pulmonary imaging analytics company, launched LungPrint Discovery, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered lung analysis solution for radiologists, at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, held November 25-30 in Chicago, Ill., USA.

VIDA is focused on transforming pulmonary care through intelligence. Powered by a combination of AI and quality-controlled image analysis services, VIDA's solution aims to provide greater precision and personalization across a range of lung diseases, including cancer, emphysema, airway obstructive diseases, asthma and interstitial lung disease. Like a fingerprint, each lung is unique. The LungPrint family of products, starting with LungPrint Discovery, aims to reveal each patient's unique lung profile in a manner that is clinically meaningful and efficient, helping VIDA deliver on its mission to transform lung care through information and intelligence.

LungPrint Discovery, a part of the VIDA|vision Software Suite, provides fully automatic quantification of lung physiology and function, including both tissue and airway analysis. LungPrint Discovery also features an airway visualization called "Hyperion View" with the potential to significantly accelerate airway reading and interpreting the complex airway anatomy.

"I've had the opportunity to preview VIDA's LungPrint Discovery and it is a game-changer for the reporting of thoracic CT scans," said Dr. John Newell, Professor of Radiology at the University of Iowa. "It will empower radiologists to provide a richer set of quantitative CT lung information with a state-of-the-art CT report for the referring physician. The new airway display is remarkable."

"We are pleased to serve radiologists with a product that delivers on the promises of AI, namely greater and proven clinical precision in tandem with efficiency gains," said Susan A. Wood, PhD, CEO of VIDA. "Our solution continually evolves and is designed with leading clinicians and clinically validated through large-scale trials. With seamless integration into the radiology workflow, our best-in-class solution can be used with a broadening audience and make a greater impact on pulmonary patient care."
