Carestream Spotlights New Imaging Analytics Tools for Preventative Care at SIIM 2017

Company will also deliver presentation on how radiologists can use interactive reports to enhance collaboration with referring physicians

Carestream Spotlights New Imaging Analytics Tools for Preventative Care at SIIM 2017, Clinical Collaboration Platform

May 15, 2017 — Carestream Health is demonstrating new imaging analytics tools that are being added to its Clinical Collaboration Platform at the upcoming Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) conference, June 1-3 in Pittsburgh. These new capabilities are designed to equip healthcare providers to deliver preventative care.

Rapid advancements in imaging analytics include algorithms that can analyze data within existing radiographic images to detect distinct patterns associated with a specific pathology. For example, bone density can be calculated by applying an algorithm to any computed tomography (CT) image that contains bone to assess a patient’s risk of fracture. The algorithm generates a number that is used to determine if a patient has abnormal bone density so physicians can prescribe calcium supplements or other preventative measures.

Carestream is partnering with Zebra Medical Vision to add imaging analytics software to Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform that can:

  • Calculate liver density from a CT chest or abdomen study to detect a fatty liver;
  • Identify emphysema by detecting levels of trapped air in the lungs from a non-contrast CT chest study; and
  • Determine levels of coronary calcium from non-contrast CT chest studies in addition to assessing bone density.

Imaging analytics results indicate that patients with fatty liver and excess coronary calcium are three to five times more likely to have a serious cardiac condition.

Other emerging technologies such as natural language processing are designed to enhance accuracy in radiology reports. The technology can be used to correlate the diagnosis in a report to the corresponding image to detect body part or gender mismatches and issue real-time alerts so the content can be corrected immediately, according to Cristine Kao, Carestream’s global director for healthcare information solutions. She added that semantic search capabilities can analyze text and break it down into concepts that can be used to gather data for clinical references, research, business intelligence or population management”

Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform provides monitoring and analysis for:

  • Business/operational planning;
  • System performance;
  • Clinical decision support;
  • Quality metrics;
  • Critical results;
  • Regulatory compliance; and
  • Participation in national registries and peer review.

The company will give a presentation at SIIM entitled “Strategies to Help Radiologists Create Value in the Eyes of Patients and Referring Physicians” from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 2. The presentation will explain how radiologists can enhance communication and collaboration with referring physicians and the benefits of interactive multimedia reports that deliver rapid access to key findings. Carestream also enables communication of radiology images and information with patients from an electronic medical record (EMR)-based patient portal.
