New Radiology AI Models Reduce Time to Care

Accelerating care delivery

I am pleased to share that vRad has deployed two additional Artificial Intelligence (AI) models to our imaging platform, bringing the total to seven active models helping patients right now.

The first new model identifies pneumoperitoneum in chest CTs, and the second model identifies testicular torsion in ultrasound scans. Both conditions are critical, and timely diagnoses will have a positive impact on patient outcomes. As with all our innovation and product development, our models are immediately available to clients as part of our AI-enhanced on-the-ground and in-the-cloud radiology solutions.

How we successfully put AI models to work for our radiologists

Two components are essential to successfully establish, develop and sustain applied AI in radiology: Uncompromised collaboration between radiologists and computer scientists, and access to a constant flow of data that is representative of a highly diverse population. This is the foundation of MEDNAX Radiology AI.

How AI is helping ensure reporting accuracy and compliance

At vRad, AI is helping manage regulatory compliance and adherence to best practices to ensure quality care, which should avoid unnecessary medical expenses and mitigate malpractice risk.

Beyond the hype: How practical AI is enhancing radiology

Moving past the initial media hype, practitioners are beginning to demonstrate how AI applications can enhance the ability of radiologists to support better patient outcomes.
