Philips and DiA Imaging Analysis Ltd., a leading provider of AI-powered applications for ultrasound, today announced a strategic partnership* to deliver automated solutions to clinicians at the point-of-care.
Philips’ industry leading ultrasound image quality combined with DiA’s AI library of automated solutions will help increase diagnostic confidence, operational efficiency, and access to care for Point-of-Care customers in and out of the hospital.
Philips continues to build suites of intelligent and automated enhancements integrated into Radiology workflows across its portfolio to benefit customers and patients alike. By facilitating the development and integration of AI-enabled applications, Philips aims to enhance its ability to deliver on the Quadruple Aim of better patient outcomes, improved patient and staff experiences and lower cost of care. The integration of AI applications within ultrasound technology can also help lead to improved access to care.
While ultrasound is a cost-efficient diagnostic imaging modality, it currently requires a significant level of operator experience and visual interpretation to use it effectively. In particular, the subjectivity and variability associated with visual interpretation pose a challenge for longitudinal assessments to gauge patient improvement or deterioration. To reduce the variability, improve the efficiency and increase the accuracy of image analysis, DiA Imaging has developed FDA cleared and CE-marked AI-enabled 2D ultrasound applications.
