iSchemaView Launches RAPID Angio

March 1, 2019 — iSchemaView announced the release of RAPID Angio, a complete neuroimaging solution for the angiography suite that integrates iSchemaView’s RAPID software with syngo DynaCT Multiphase from Siemens Healthineers. The syngo DynaCT Multiphase is a three-dimensional image acquisition technique employing multiple rotations of a C-arm system to acquire a multi-phasic 3-D representation of the brain and its perfusion. This technology, when combined with the RAPID platform’s CTP product, delivers a powerful imaging solution to the angio suite for acute stroke patients.

The RAPID Angio module, by combining the syngo DynaCT system with the RAPID platform, allows for the direct evaluation of acute stroke patients in the angiography procedure room, saving precious time. The RAPID platform automatically provides clear, easy-to-interpret computed tomography (CT) perfusion maps that readily identify brain regions with reduced cerebral blood flow and blood volume as well as delayed contrast arrival. It is the only neuroimaging platform that is U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared for a thrombectomy indication. In addition to identifying irreversibly damaged brain tissue and salvageable areas, the CTP module includes hypoperfusion intensity ratio (HIR) and cerebral blood volume (CBV) indices for the assessment of collateral blood flow and the rate of infarct growth, as well as a “golden hour” index for ultra-early patients. RAPID CTP helps physicians with patient triage and clinical decision making.

“RAPID directly in the angio suite will help our specialists treat the right patients even faster,” said Prof. Jian Ming Liu, director of Neurosurgery Center, Changhai Hospital, China. “Having the most advanced RAPID technology available in both the radiology department and the operating theater provides the best options for our doctors and patients.”

RAPID Angio runs on the RAPID artificial intelligence (AI) framework. Developed by leading stroke experts, the RAPID AI framework combines deep learning, machine learning and expert feature extraction. Together these provide high sensitivity and specificity across stroke modules. Results are then delivered by the RAPID Intelligence Services Platform via picture archiving and communication system (PACS), email, text, the RAPID App or corporate partner workflow systems.
