Aidoc commences AI solution for whole body CT scan analysis

Deep learning startup company Aidoc announced what it calls the world’s first and only comprehensive, full-body solution utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to help analyze computed tomography (CT) scans, highlighting medical findings for radiologists.

The workflow-integrated solution offers support for radiologists covering areas such as the head, c-spine, chest and abdomen.

“Aidoc’s differentiable approach positions them to overcome the challenging threshold for true adoption of AI solutions by providing significant and clinically relevant value to the radiologist’s practice, in respect to both efficiency and quality,” said Paul J. Chang, M.D., FSIIM, vice-chairman of radiology informatics, University of Chicago School of Medicine.

AI-powered technology can have significant impact analyzing acute findings, where time and accuracy are essential. The Aidoc platform expands medical imaging analysis beyond available solutions, which remain relatively specialized with limited application, extending the clinical value of AI to a major portion of radiologists’ daily workload, according to the company.

Aidoc obtained the CE Mark last year, making its head and c-spine solution accessible to medical institutions and patients across Europe. “Based on our results from clinical trials with Aidoc, we firmly believe that their solutions will strongly enhance our clinical workflow,” said Bram Stieltjes, M.D., VC of research, University Hospital of Basel in Basel, Switzerland.
Aidoc will be presenting its full-body AI solution at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2018, Feb. 28-March 4 in Vienna, Austria.
