March 29, 2023 — In a partnership which aims to provide faster and safer medical imaging across Australia and New Zealand, Getz Healthcare announced that it has partnered with Subtle Medical, a Menlo Park, CA-based healthcare technology company, to distribute the company's artificial intelligence (AI)-based software solutions for faster and safer medical imaging. According to the company, Subtle's solutions could provide significant efficiency gains for hospitals and private radiology clinics within Australia and New Zealand, resulting in more timely patient access to critical PET and MRI imaging services.
Subtle Medical's software solution, SubtlePET, uses proprietary deep learning algorithms to denoise low count PET images from up to 75% lower radiotracer dose and faster scan times. SubtleMR uses increased sharpness and denoising to improve the image quality on up to 60% faster MRI exams. Subtle's solutions are compatible across all PET and MRI scanner brands, makes, and models, and seamlessly integrate into existing workflows.
“Our goal is to not only make medical imaging safer and more focused on the patient, but also help imaging institutions and radiologists achieve higher quality imaging while running a more efficient operation. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with Getz," said Josh Gurewitz, Chief Commercial Officer at Subtle Medical.
"The possibility for Subtle Medical's software solutions to improve efficiency and image quality while extending the life of existing imaging systems is a real game changer for radiologists and patients in need of access to imaging. We are delighted to introduce this technology to Australia and New Zealand," said Kimberly Hill, Managing Director of Getz Healthcare Australia & New Zealand.
In a statement announcing the collaboration, the company reported that Subtle's (AI) software solutions have been commercially deployed in over 400 sites worldwide, adding that the company’s software solutions use deep learning to increase the quality and efficiency of medical imaging. The company is a CB Insights Top AI 100, two-time Digital Health 150 company, and is led by Founder and CEO Enhao Gong, PhD, a deep learning scientist with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, and Founder and Neuroradiologist Greg Zaharchuk, MD, PhD, Professor of Radiology and practicing Neuroradiologist at Stanford University and Faculty Affiliate with its Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI).
