"Our partnership with DocPanel opens up a whole new way for our subspecialty radiologists to reach patients who may be struggling to find clarity," said Edward G. Grant M.D., FACR, professor and chairman, Department of Radiology at USC-Keck School of Medicine. "We are able to put patients at ease by providing accurate diagnoses. Division chiefs directly handle many cases, along with their hand-picked teams, ensuring patients receive reliable radiology reads, consultations and second opinions."

DocPanel offers a new flexible model that can co-exist, supplement or replace existing models of radiology. The company said this can help overcome challenges related to errors, high costs, staff shortages and more.

This is work-in-progress artificial intelligence app on Fujifilm's mobile digital radiography system to immediately detect pneumothorax (a collapsed lung), The AI highlights the area of interest to show the location to the technologist and attending physician in a unit before the image is even uploaded to the PACS for a read by a radiologist. The technology also can flag the study for an immediate read in the PACS worklist for confirmation by a human. This technology is from a third-party and will be offered on Fujifilm's REiLI AI platform.
