Benefits of AI and edge technology in radiology
Prof. Dr. Kotter and his colleagues at the university hospital in Heidelberg benefit of having the AI-Rad Companion Chest CT in their clinical environment. In the institution the data processing is done locally, although the system is running on the teamplay digital health platform. This hybrid and unique setup make it possible that advanced deep-learning algorithms run on their local hardware and no sensitive data leaves the institution. And on the other hand, they benefit from fully managed operations remotely from the cloud with regular software and algorithms updates.
AI-Rad Companion consists of several products that are (medical) devices in their own right, and products under development. AI-Rad Companion is not commercially available in all countries. Future availability cannot be ensured
The edge technology is pending 510(k) clearance, and are not yet commercially available in the United States. Their future availability cannot be guaranteed.
The statements by Siemens Healthineers’ customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Because there is no “typical” hospital or laboratory and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, samples mix, case mix, level of IT and/or automation adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
