With technology at the forefront, it is indeed no wonder that the AI-powered software can quicken the turnaround time and also help give out consistent results. Significantly, ultrasound imaging backed by artificial intelligence is expected to push the growth of the ultrasound market in Australia with the ability to automate the procedures and also go on to yield accurate evaluation, as per data analytics firm GlobalData.
One of the innovations that has been recently done on the market is an AI-powered software that automatically evaluates and also reports thyroid as well as breast ultrasound scans across Australia and New Zealand, developed by one of the firms based out of Australia.
One of the medical device analysts at the research firm, Satyajeet Salunkhe, said that the AI integration with ultrasound technologies will not only go on to aid the radiologists but will also reduce the turnaround time. Besides, AI-based analysis is also expected to improve diagnostic accuracy when it comes to the detection of the abnormalities found in thyroid and breast tissues.
He added that this new system can go on to automate the complex medical imaging analysis in a routine clinical practise when it comes to having a more seamless and effective workflow.
The software also enhances the dependency of reporting and aids in making sure that human errors are avoided in the interpretation of images and brings forth more consistent image analysis with the help of advanced computational modelling techniques as well as deep learning.
GlobalData added that when it comes to breast and thyroid tissues, the system does provide classification of clinical image lesions as per the TI-RADS and BI-RADS rating systems, which helps in the assessment of risks. It is further said that the software can also go on to automate identification when it comes to other vascular pathologies like reflux, stenosis, and occlusion.
It is well to note that the ultrasound system market of Australia accounted for 14.8% of the country’s diagnostic imaging market last year, the research firm stated.
