The End-to-End CT Workflow Automation is designed to streamline operations from referral through reporting, improve patient care, and increase operational efficiencies
Canon Medical Systems USA, an imaging and healthcare technology company, has unveiled its artificial intelligence (AI) technology powered End-to-End CT Workflow Automation suite.
The End-to-End CT Workflow Automation, powered by artificial intelligence (AI) technology, is designed to streamline operations from referral through reporting, improve patient care, and increase operational efficiencies.
The suite’s features are intended to boost confidence throughout the CT study process, said Canon Medical Systems.
It includes an INSTINX CT workflow experience tool that prioritises patient-centric care by automating workflows.
INSTINX CT is said to offer quick scan planning, simple and safe patient positioning, and consistency between operators irrespective of their levels of experience.
The automated features and user-friendly design offered by the tool increase the productivity of the workflow, Canon Medical said.
The second tool is Remote Assist which improves the care delivery by offering remote scanning assistance. It allows direct virtual access from the scanner to in-house experts.
End-to-End CT Workflow Automation also includes the Automation Platform feature which is an AI-powered, zero-click solution that uses deep learning technology to streamline workflows and reduce manual intervention.
Additionally, the suite has a Vina Analytics CT Protocol Management solution that streamlines and standardises protocol management for Canon CT scanners.
Canon Medical Systems chief sales and marketing officer Satrajit Misra said: “In the current landscape of limited access to skilled labor, End-to-End CT Workflow Automation is a game-changer for healthcare providers.
“By automating various facets of the CT scanning process, we empower healthcare professionals to concentrate on what matters most – delivering exceptional patient care.”
In a separate development, Canon Medical Systems has partnered with Cleveland Clinic to develop imaging and healthcare IT technologies to improve diagnosis, care, and patient outcomes.
Under the partnership, the parties will set up a comprehensive imaging research centre in an existing building in Cleveland’s Fairfax neighbourhood, near the main campus of Cleveland Clinic.
Their joint research projects will be centred on cardiology, neurology and musculoskeletal medicine, Cleveland Clinic said. They will have three main components, which are pre-clinical imaging, human imaging, and image analysis.
