Digital Transformation of RadiologyShaping data-driven decisions in imaging, improving patient care

Digital Transformation - What it means for radiology

Radiology departments are faced with a multitude of challenges today like staff shortages, increasing amounts of data as well as the need for faster and precise diagnosis and innovative solutions. These demands need to be met effectively and efficiently. This is where digital solutions can play an increasingly vital part in transforming radiology. Using digital technologies to turn large amounts of data into insights will support more precise diagnosis, targeted treatment, and greater patient satisfaction. 
The digital transformation of radiology is centered around three themes:

Intelligent imaging

Intelligent imaging

Innovation is central to assist in data acquisition. Intelligent solutions enable you to generate accurate data and faster image interpretation, thereby creating actionable insights. The possibilities of digitalization help users efficiently achieve reproducible results – by guiding operators through imaging procedures, so that they can interact easily and naturally with both patient and technology. This has been made possible by myExam Companion that launches a new era of intelligent imaging that works with you to efficiently operate modalities.

AI-powered clinical decisions

AI-powered clinical decisions

One of the most pressing concerns in radiology today is the exponential growth of data and the shortage of medical staff. Intelligent solutions support radiologists in making better informed clinical decisions and adding value along the patient journey. Through superior integration and interpretation of data and creation of actionable insights, AI-powered solutions assist radiologists and clinicians in making the right decision for every patient.

Streamlined operations

Streamlined operations

Along with staff shortages, radiology and imaging departments worldwide are faced with additional pressures like increasing workload. Digitalization can unlock a whole new level of operational performance as well as hidden potential for improvements, helping you operate more efficiently. Digital solutions like remote scanning software and platforms that enable data-driven decisions along the entire patient pathway can empower you to simplify operations and create smart workflows to help reduce the workload and boost workforce productivity.

COVID-19: What we can learn from the pandemic

COVID-19 clinical

The COVID-19 pandemic has been so deeply impactful that it has changed the lives and the way of thinking for all of us in a very short time. We believe it has the potential to significantly change the radiology and healthcare system: In particular, it might serve as a catalyst in developing more effective, efficient and, above all, more humane medicine.

To help address the pandemic, we are providing AI algorithms for trial and clinical routine.

We are fully committed to supporting our partners in the healthcare system to provide the best possible care for their patients.
