MaxQ AI's Accipio Software Integrated to GE's Smart Subscription Platform

Select customers with GE CT scanners can now access and seamlessly integrate MaxQ's artificial intelligence-based brain bleed detection software into their workflow via Smart Subscription

MaxQ AI's Accipio Software Integrated to GE's Smart Subscription Platform

January 29, 2019 — MaxQ AI and GE Healthcare announced that MaxQ's Accipio artificial intelligence (AI) platform will now be a part of GE Healthcare's Computed Tomography (CT) Smart Subscription offering. GE Healthcare's Smart Subscription provides customers with continuous access to the latest imaging software updates, through an available automatic download to their CT scanners from the cloud. As a Smart Subscription offering, hospitals with GE Healthcare CTs can easily and seamlessly integrate MaxQ's Accipio platform, from which Accipio Ix intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) detection software is now available.

GE Healthcare's Smart Subscription is a service that supports the integration and seamless deployment of new innovations such as AI-enabled offerings to keep CT scanners current, reduce variability and bring intelligent imaging into hospitals. Smart Subscription offers flexible options for smarter budgeting, giving health systems, hospitals and clinics the opportunity to standardize applications across all CT units, and select the applications they need, with an option to add or remove applications at any time.

Accipio Ix, which has received both U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance and CE Mark certification, leverages artificial intelligence technology to automatically analyze non-contrast head CT images. The AI-powered Accipio Ix, part of MaxQ's Accipio Insight platform, is designed to be highly sensitive to the presence of ICH, identifying and prioritizing patients with a brain bleed for the treating physician. It provides a capability for rapid escalation and prioritization of the patient and can be natively integrated into CT and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) using DICOM, installed both on-premise and in the future, cloud-capable.

MaxQ demonstrated Accipio Ix, along with the full suite of Accipio platform solutions, during the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.

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
