Dr Viranna, Chief Executive Officer of I-MED Radiology Network, sees technology and artificial intelligence playing a critical role in the future of imaging services.
I-MED entered a new joint venture with Harrison.ai in December 2019, called Annalise.ai. Together they are developing AI-enabled software for medical imaging which helps radiologists efficiently and accurately diagnose diseases.
"This will not replace radiologists ... this will become an incredible helpful supplemental tool ... [particularly] in countries where there is limited access to radiologists, like in the developing world."
The Annalise.ai solution would look at more than 140 indications of disease/abnormality/injury in a chest x-ray, compared with alternatives that only looked at 10 to 15 indications.
