Nordic MedTech today announced that they have joined forces with Qure.ai to deploy advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology for medical imaging diagnostics in the Nordics and Baltic regions.
The new distribution agreement will see Qure.ai’s head CT scan interpretation and triage aid “qER”, and chest x-ray interpretation tool “qXR” available to practices in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and associated geographies. Both solutions are CE Certified and are aimed to improve clinician productivity and patient outcomes in diagnostic imaging.
Qure’s emergency room head CT tool, qER, is the only US FDA cleared solution that can be used to triage for intracranial bleeds, mass effect, midline shift, and cranial fractures. It helps prioritize radiology worklists and notifies when head CT scans with critical abnormalities are detected. It can also be used as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) progress monitoring tool and is offered with a reporting assistance mode that pre-populates radiologist templates.
Qure.ai’s qXR solution will analyse chest X-rays to deliver faster and more accurate detection of 24 of the most common lung abnormalities including opacities, tracheal shift, cardiomegaly, and pleural effusion with high levels of accuracy. The software generates a description of the findings, including name, size, and location of the abnormality, reducing the chances of potentially life-threatening missed diagnoses. The solution can also be used to triage and quantify COVID-19 infection in the lungs of patients.
“We are excited to partner with the capable team at Nordic MedTech and look forward to jointly take our solutions to radiologists and clinicians in the Nordic markets. Our commitment to our partners ans customers is to give them quality solutions that improve the accuracy of diagnoses and streamline clinical workflows and eventually enable better patient health outcomes”, said Prashant Warier, CEO and Co-founder, Qure.ai.
“By joining forces with Qure.ai we have taken a big leap forward to help our customers in their clinical daily routine. With solutions that is applicable both in the emergency rooms as well for chest X-rays we are convinced this is an important piece in the radiology puzzle and in the end for the best possible patient outcome”, said Pierre Vestman, CEO and Co-founder, Nordic MedTech AB.
