"Currently, 62 percent of exams are marked 'STAT' or for urgent reading, but they aren't all critical," says Jie Xue, President & CEO, X-ray, GE Healthcare. "This creates a delay in turnaround for truly critical patients, which can be a serious issue."
"Not only does Critical Care Suite flag images with a suspected pneumothorax with impressive accuracy and enable radiologists to prioritize those cases immediately, but it also makes AI accessible," says Xue. "Our embedded AI algorithms offer hospitals an opportunity to try AI without making investments into additional IT infrastructure, security assessments or cybersecurity precautions for routing images offsite."
Critical Care Suite and the quality algorithms were developed using GE Healthcare's Edison platform – which helps deploy AI algorithms quickly and securely – and deployed on the company’s Optima XR240amx system.
