Keen to improve radiology workflows, Alma Medical (Spain) has integrated contextflow’s SEARCH Lung CT (Austria) into its Alma HEALTH PLATFORM.
VIENNA, VIENNA, AUSTRIA, January 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ – Alma Medical recently signed a collaboration agreement with contextflow, based in Vienna, with the aim of integrating its innovative algorithm for the identification and interpretation of lung-specific image models in computed tomography into the new platform -digital health form: Alma HEALTH PLATFORM.
This collaboration will allow hundreds of radiologists to integrate this artificial intelligence tool in their clinical workflow, increasing their productivity.
contextflow supports 19 different models in lung CT scans and lung nodules, including those linked to COVID-19. It searches a large database of visually similar 3D medical images and displays relevant case statistics and links to the differential diagnosis literature. Additionally, it provides quantitative and visual insight into relevant patterns and lung nodules.
Thanks to the digital platform, radiologists will be able to report faster * and obtain expert advice at the click of a mouse. The contextflow solution provides non-thoracic experts with relevant contextual information, which helps raise their level to that of an expert. * The results of a soon to be published clinical study show an average reading time saving of 31% for SEARCH Lung CT only.
The joint digital platform solution, combined with the contextflow solution, is an excellent way to improve the performance of radiologists.
