For more efficient radiological diagnostics: Easy integration of artificial intelligence
deepc and NeoQ announce cooperation that reduces physicians' workload and increases patient safety
- Novel and integrated use of AI and Guided Reporting
- Pilot project at the University Hospital Essen, Germany
Munich, December 2021
Radiology imaging and artificial intelligence (AI) are merging. deepc and the Berlin-based start-up Neo Q, which developed the reporting method Guided Reporting, have announced a cooperation to further advance this concept.
deepc’s novel AI platform deepcOS will be integrated within Neo Q´s RadioReport solution. Radiologists will be able to seamlessly access AI algorithms during the innovative IT-guided reporting process, which assists them in image analysis. For the first time, Neo Q’s technology generates 100 percent machine-readable and highly detailed data. Through the platform, users have access to a wide range of selected AI applications for more than 30 clinical indications.
The cooperation marks an expansion of the existing collaboration with the Essen University Hospital and Professor Michael Forsting, Director of the Institute of Radiology and Neuroradiology, in the field of stroke management.
AI algorithms can automatically check images and detect typical signs of a stroke or brain hemorrhage in less than two minutes, and the physician generates a complete report very quickly using Guided Reporting. The report contains all the information needed to initiate therapy promptly.
The Munich-based MedTech company deepc GmbH is working on the development of medical products with the aim of simplifying and improving the workflow in imaging diagnostics with pioneering AI and software technology. Their first product, the novel AI platform 'deepcOS' supports and improves radiological diagnostics with various tested AI applications from leading international partners and can be integrated into existing clinical systems in a simple, secure, and data protection-compliant manner. deepc was awarded the Founder's Prize and the Special Prize in the field of health by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
About Neo Q
Neo Q Quality in Imaging GmbH was founded by Prof. Alexander Huppertz, MD, Oliver Aretz and Jan Wintzer. Based in Berlin, Germany, the healthcare IT start-up offers physicians worldwide a revolutionary solution for the efficient documentation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) findings, called Guided Reporting. For this purpose, the thought processes of experienced radiologists have been decoded and simulated within the state-of-the-art, intuitive RadioReport software. The result is a systematic, complete and error-free report. The report generation is significantly faster compared to classical dictation.
