Aidoc Earns FDA Approval for AI for C-spine Fractures

Company’s third FDA clearance in nine months ensures patients with C-spine fractures are treated faster, saving lives

Aidoc Earns FDA Approval for AI for C-spine Fractures

June 11, 2019 – Radiology artificial intelligence (AI) provider Aidoc announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the world’s first AI solution for triage of cervical spine fractures. The latest 510(k) clearance is Aidoc’s third, coming just weeks after the FDA cleared Aidoc’s pulmonary embolism solution. By prioritizing suspected C-spine fracture cases in a radiologist’s worklist, Aidoc’s AI-powered triage automatically prioritizes critical cases, ensuring they are diagnosed by a radiologist in the most timely manner.

Recent studies show that 54 percent of radiologists feel “burnt out” due to long work hours and on-the-job stress. Two of the main reasons for physician burnout are related to “hunt and search” tasks and the documentation process, both of which can be improved upon by AI. In addition, the sheer volume of images the physician is expected to analyze has increased dramatically; a radiologist’s workload in one day in 2018 is equal to a week in 2008 and a month in 1998. Radiologists are expected to interpret one image every 3-4 seconds just to keep up with their workloads. AI-driven workflow triage is especially beneficial for empowering the radiologist by maintaining quality across the workflow, increasing confidence in treating critical patients on time, while making radiologists’ work a lot more rewarding and less tedious.

“We chose to partner with Aidoc because of their scope. I am continuously impressed by the level of comprehensiveness their solutions demonstrate for acute pathologies. Our radiology team has over 80 percent of the most common acute CT [computed tomography] findings covered by Aidoc including ICH [intracranial hemorrhage], PE, C-spine and more. I am not aware of any other AI vendor who is able to release this many pathologies, at this level of accuracy, in such a short timeframe,” said Eyal Zimlichman, M.D., chief medical officer at Sheba Medical Center in Israel.

Aidoc will demonstrate its suite of AI-based workflow solutions at the 2019 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, June 26-28 in Aurora, Colo. Aidoc’s CEO, Elad Walach, will present on an Ask Industry panel on the topic of ‘AI in Practice – Where Are We Now?’
