March 19, 2018 — Carestream Health demonstrated advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and imaging analytics software tools designed to enhance both the quality and speed of diagnosis and reporting for radiology imaging exams at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2018 tradeshow, March 5-9 in Las Vegas.
Carestream currently incorporates third-party algorithmic results for osteoporosis, lung emphysema, coronary calcification and fatty liver as part of its Clinical Collaboration Platform.
Thierry Verstraete, Carestream’s global product manager clinical solutions and analytics, said that by using an algorithm-enabled Radiology Assistant, users can boost diagnostic confidence while simultaneously improving productivity and containing costs.
The Radiology Assistant, using the Coronary Calcium Scoring (CCS) algorithm (pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] 510(k) clearance), provides detailed findings with key diagnostic images available to radiologists a few minutes after image acquisition.
“Artificial intelligence can calculate and provide incidental findings, critical findings or quantitative assessments to help streamline radiologists’ reading workflow and allow early treatment that can reduce the impact of a disease or condition. Early treatment also may reduce the increased financial burden for patients, governments and healthcare providers that will come with these complications,” Verstraete explained.
As part of its Clinical Collaboration Platform, Carestream’s Workflow Orchestrator directs the study to the best radiologist for each case based on subspecialty, location and affiliation. The Workflow Orchestrator fabric contains a vast array of sensors that generate data on a continuous basis.
