Healthcare, particularly medical imaging, is not untouched by AI’s advancements across all industries. Medical imaging technologies provide clinicians with accurate and convenient disease screenings, enabling them to detect abnormalities proactively, treat illnesses early on, and enhance patient outcomes. Businesses are developing innovative medical imaging solutions utilizing machine learning and image processing technologies. This article covers some of the top startups in medical imaging powered by AI.
Aidoc creates cutting-edge AI-based decision support software for the healthcare industry that helps radiologists prioritize life-threatening situations and speed up patient care by flagging acute anomalies from medical imaging in real-time. Radiologists benefit from cutting-edge deep learning technology that is “always-on,” running behind the scenes and allowing them to concentrate on the diagnosis. Aidoc’s portfolio is one of the most extensive in the industry, providing diagnostic assistance for a wide range of pathologies.
Radiologists are working up to four times as hard to make up for physician shortages and increasing case volume. To ease the strain on radiologists’ daily tasks, Sirona provides a radiology operating system. They provide Sirona Workspace to help radiologists make faster and more accurate diagnoses that benefit everyone. Sirona Workspace integrates the worklist, viewer, reporter, and PACS archive into a single platform and incorporates AI to anticipate and streamline radiologists’ tasks.
Gleamer creates a range of AI solutions for radiology that incorporate high-caliber medical knowledge. The business intends to assist imaging users in securing diagnoses for every patient at any time while boosting productivity. The AI Companions from Gleamer function as an automatic and transparent second reading to increase diagnostic precision in X-ray imaging and are seamlessly integrated with the users’ familiar reading environment. To develop the next wave of Medical-grade AI tools, the company is assembling an exceptional team of AI experts, engineers, physicians, and business managers.
Arterys is the industry leader in combining human and artificial intelligence to improve patient outcomes through precision medicine and previously unattainable insights. The Arterys platform extracts valuable information from medical images to enhance clinical value, boost productivity, and enhance diagnostic decision-making. It provides a platform for medical imaging AI that enables physicians to seamlessly integrate cutting-edge AI clinical applications into their current PACS or EHR-driven workflow, making it an organic extension of their workflow.
By removing inefficiencies in workflows, addressing capacity issues, and ensuring medical information is more usable and beneficial for patient care, Enlitic is attempting to apply AI in radiology to ease staff time and reduce costs. Their Curie platform combines real-world, artificial, and human intelligence to produce an evidence-based solution that improves healthcare data sharing, relevance, and educational value for medical practitioners. It makes the most of what PACS promises while resolving workflow issues, eliminating redundant labor, and improving reporting efficiency.
RT Connect was created to handle the intricate problems of oncology. The goal of RT Connect is to manage a patient’s complete cancer care, from scheduling to delivery and follow-up of treatment, by combining cancer, surgery, and radiation therapy information into a single, unified system. The startup collaborates with physicians and researchers to bring science, artificial intelligence, and clinical intelligence together for a time when everyone will gain from the ease of sharing and access to clinical data.
There are billions of people without access to medical imaging worldwide, from underprivileged communities to isolated regions of Africa. To address this issue, Butterfly Network developed the first handheld whole-body imager in the world by putting ultrasound on a chip.
Early identification and action can enhance patient care while lowering costs and risk; this is what healthcare systems and payers hope to achieve. Unfortunately, it is impossible to test everyone for everything constantly. With their AI medical imaging technology, Nanox is assisting in solving this issue by screening for early indicators of chronic disease in large populations. By enabling more precise risk adjustment, Nanox AI improves the quality of healthcare services at much-reduced costs, allowing patients to receive the preventative care paths they require.
Ezra has created a new way to screen for cancer using full-body MRI technology assisted by Artificial Intelligence. The company’s first AI, developed to assist radiologists when interpreting MRI images of the prostate, is an FDA-cleared software as a medical device.
