FDA clears embedded AI on mobile X-ray device
GE Healthcare (Chicago, IL) has announced that it has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of what it says is an industry-first collection of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms embedded on a mobile X-ray device.
checks on-device integrates them into the technologist's standard workflow and enables technologist actions – such as rejections or reprocessing – to occur at the patient's bedside and before the images are sent to a picture archiving and communication system.

"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.
