Intelerad Commits $75 Million to R&D for New AI and Cloud-based Medical Imaging Software

May 31, 2019 — Intelerad Medical Systems announced a $75 million investment in research and development (R&D) to expand its solutions portfolio, with an emphasis on cloud technology and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions.

On a daily basis, Intelerad solutions enable radiologists to perform more than 200,000 diagnostic interpretations worldwide. The company’s $75 million investment and ongoing focus on creating innovative solutions for a global customer base is expected to fuel a twofold increase in study volume. Intelerad technology simplifies everyday tasks for radiologists and other healthcare professionals, enabling them to optimize efficiency and apply their expertise and energy toward more personalized services and follow-ups for every patient.

With an emphasis on cloud technology and AI, Intelerad is focused on providing software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for healthcare. For example, the cloud-based Clairvoyance productivity dashboard will incorporate machine learning technology to provide predictive insights to imaging departments, enabling real-time, data-driven decisions that contribute to higher-quality, more timely care and better outcomes for patients.

Over the last three years, Intelerad has expanded its employee base by 30 percent. The company expects to double in size over the next five years with the recruitment of additional subject matter experts and technologists to swiftly bring innovative solutions to market, continue investing in customer satisfaction and grow Intelerad’s presence worldwide.

“I’ve had the pleasure of using Intelerad technology in my daily work for 17 years, the company truly understands the needs of the medical imaging community,” said radiologist Giovanni Artho, M.D., of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). “Intelerad solutions are highly versatile, extremely intuitive and constantly evolving to meet the needs of the market. They have a huge impact on efficiency and are critical for streamlining communication between care team members, which enables us to provide the highest quality patient care.”

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
