Training of algorithms for AI-Rad Companion Chest CT

Up-to-date algorithms and scalable offerings

Our state-of-the-art algorithms will be automatically distributed to you as a user as soon as they are officially released and made available. Once the images are post-processed by the AI-Rad Companion, it supports your interpretation of the data by automatically providing results of its analysis to you for review, confirmation and possible inclusion in the final report or care pathway – to raise your precision and ensure high quality outcome in diagnostic decision-making.

All our AI-Rad Companion extensions are deployed via one secure cloud – the teamplay digital health platform. This approach eases regular updates as well as upgrade processes and facilitates the integration of new offerings into the existing IT environment.

The AI-Rad Companion family is growing

AI-Rad Companion Aorta Contrast
This 3D overview of the thoracic aorta has been automatically created by the AI-Rad Companion Chest CT. It includes the measurement of relevant diameters, based on medical guidelines and detected anatomical landmarks. This illustrates how the AI-Rad Companion Chest CT can support you increase the accuracy of your reporting.

AI-Rad Companion Spine
On this image you can see how the height of the vertebrae bodies is measured and compared. The AI-Rad Companion Chest CT automatically processes these measures and marks abnormalities with an easy to understand color-coding. Deviation are highlighted and on top you can see that the bone density is defined in Hounsfield Units.

AI-Rad Companion Prostate MR Vida Segmentation Lesion
The radiologist can manually mark and characterize lesions and other targets and add comments within the AI-Rad Companion Prostate MR for biopsy support. The solution can export segmentations and targets in a RT structured format as well as burnt in contours. These images can be exported and used by the urologist to fuse with Ultrasound images as a biopsy guidance.

Integration

Smooth integration of artificial intelligence into the radiology environment

AI-Rad Companion may be fully integrated into the image interpretation workflow and helps you to handle your daily workload with greater ease.

COVID-19

The entire global population has been impacted, in one way or another, by the COVID-19 virus. The AI-Rad Companion, our Siemens Healthineers AI driven solution, offers our customers the opportunity to have access to different postprocessing software for the analysis of lung examinations.

AI-Rad Companion Research CT Pneumonia Analysis5

This prototype is designed to automatically identify and quantify hyperdense regions of the lung, enabling simple to use analysis of non-contrasted lung CT scans for research purposes. The prototype could be used to analyze ground-glass opacities and consolidations. High opacity abnormalities were shown to correlate with lungs of COVID-19 patients. Free of charge access to the prototype can be requested on the Digital Marketplace (Customer needs to agree to a simplified collaboration contract prior to use). The benefit of offering this prototype as part of the AI-Rad Companion family makes an integration and technical set-up rather easy for user of the AI-Rad Companion or customers with access to the teamplay digital health platform.

AI-Rad Companion Chest X-ray2

Chest imaging, X-ray in particular, plays an important role in patient management during the COVID-19 pandemic6. Patient management and clinical decisions depend on clinical outcomes and imaging reports. The new member of the AI-Rad Companion family, the AI-Rad Companion Chest X-ray automatically processes upright chest X-ray images (PA direction). Next to pneumothorax, pleural effusion and nodule detection, the AI-Rad Companion Chest X-ray is able to indicate consolidations and atelectasis. The latter may be signs of pneumonia caused by the COVID-19 virus.
