Aidoc Receives CE Mark for Deep Learning Solution for Head and Neck Imaging

Company's solution aims at boosting radiologists' efficiency with targeted AI that detects abnormalities in medical images and alerts doctors in real time

November 27, 2017 — Artificial intelligence (AI) startup Aidoc announced that it received CE (Conformité Européenne) marking for what it calls the world's first commercial head and neck deep learning medical imaging solution. CE marking allows for widespread commercialization of Aidoc's solution in Europe.

Aidoc's solution augments radiologists' workflow through its ability to comprehensively detect abnormalities in imaging of both the head and neck, an anatomical area responsible for a major portion of medical images. The company says the solution could be extremely impactful in trauma cases, where time can be the difference between the patient's life and death.

Aidoc's deep learning technology highlights a vast array of medical findings to help radiologists prioritize readings, aimed at facilitating interpretation and reducing time to decision when it matters most. Radiologists can now perform smart optimization of their worklist by prioritizing cases based on AI medical image analysis in conjunction with other clinically available data. Aidoc's solution is agnostic to radiologists' incumbent software, integrating seamlessly and providing immediate results.

The CE marking was based on data collected in clinical trials validating Aidoc's precision, which compared the solution's results to unassisted radiologists' review of those cases. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles also assessed Aidoc's solution earlier this year and that study resulted in impressive accuracy in scan analysis.

"In our clinical trial, Aidoc's technology has demonstrated its ability to enhance our radiologists' workflow, as abnormal scans can be prioritized and more carefully reviewed," said Barry D. Pressman, M.D., chairman of imaging at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "Our firsthand experience has led me to believe in the technology's potential to achieve a significant increase in our radiologists' productivity and accuracy. It's a win both for our physicians and our patients. Aidoc's AI-powered solution will help our radiologists be their best, and streamline their workflow."
