AI imaging startup announces partnership with ACR

At the RSNA’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Chicago, Aidoc announced a new partnership with the American College of Radiology Science Institute to create standard solutions for the integration of AI into medical imaging and radiologists’ daily workflow.  

The partnership will help improve disease detection, diagnosis, follow-up and treatment and these efforts have helped the company gain international recognition.   

In October, the Israeli medical imaging and artificial intelligence (AI) technology startup was named one of TIME’s Genius Companies of 2018. For the first annual list of its kind, TIME looked for businesses around the world that are “inventing the future” and based the list on key factors such as originality, influence success and ambition.  

“The amount of data available has created an overload,” Aidoc CEO, Elad Walach told TIME. “AI can provide the value from the data that will really impact patient outcomes today.”  

To date, Aidcoc's AI software has analyzed more than 260,000 images, has saved radiologists 50,000 hours of work and is being used by medical practitioners in more than 50 hospitals, trauma centers, outpatient imaging centers and teleradiology facilities worldwide, according to TIME.

As of last month, the company’s software was granted FDA approval to scan images for brain hemorrhages.
