The solution can automatically match CT plain scans and enhance multi-phase images, accurately detect and segment multi-phase focal lesions within seconds, and automatically calculate the risk of the lesions and liver surface abnormalities, with rich qualitative and quantitative Multi-dimensional analysis provides imaging doctors with comprehensive reading assistance. In addition, the solution has a highly stable and smooth real-time rendering function of fully automatic liver structure, tumors, and blood vessels, shortening the original complicated 3D reconstruction time from one hour to one minute, helping the surgeon to fully Evaluate the surgical plan so that the image data can play a greater role in clinical treatment.
SenseCare®️ Liver Smart Clinical Solution Landed
At present, SenseCare®️ Liver Intelligent Clinical Solution has been put into use in Run Run Run Run Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, seamlessly embedded in the doctor’s image reading workflow. Professor Hu Hongjie, director of the Department of Radiology of the hospital, said in this event, “Liver imaging diagnosis and treatment is not only a lot of work, but also very difficult. The application of AI technology not only reduces the mechanical workload for doctors, but more importantly, it can deal with key problems. Provide accurate indications to reduce the risk of missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis, and accelerate the accumulation of doctors’ experience in reading liver diseases.” In addition, this solution also landed in West China Hospital of Sichuan University, pioneering the realization of comprehensive imaging for liver diseases. Process management, so as to better guide the treatment and recovery of liver cancer patients, provides powerful help for dealing with liver cancer, the world’s fourth-largest mortality rate.
AI significantly shortens the diagnosis process of cardiovascular diseases
At present, the prevalence and mortality of cardiovascular diseases in my country are still on the rise. “As an important method for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, cardiovascular CT imaging (CTA) has been widely used in clinical applications due to its convenience, speed and non-invasiveness.” Professor Wang Yining, deputy director of the Department of Radiology of Peking Union Medical College Hospital, introduced in the SenseTime theme forum Tao. However, in the current CTA examination process, doctors need to perform complex post-processing and reconstruction of CTA images. The reconstruction process requires a lot of manual interaction, which makes the reconstruction time of single-case data up to 20 minutes or more, which affects the efficiency of doctors’ reading and reporting. .
SenseCare®️ Heart coronary artery intelligent clinical solution can automatically complete quantitative classification such as heart segmentation, coronary artery segmentation, centerline extraction, plaque detection and classification based on CTA scan data, providing arbitrary angles and multiple reconstruction methods for the heart and blood vessels Flexible and interactive display, in addition to automatic film layout, generating structured reports, and industry-leading high-efficiency, fully automatic processes to help doctors improve their work efficiency. In this regard, Professor Wang Yining mentioned, “With the blessing of AI, the entire CTA process has achieved higher-quality fully automated process processing, helping doctors to make a more comprehensive and efficient diagnosis, so as to truly increase the shortage of medical resources in underdeveloped areas and regions. The ability of primary medical institutions to diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases.”
As one of the first hospitals to apply SenseCare®️ Cardiac Coronary Intelligent Clinical Solutions, the CTA reading efficiency of Changzhou Second People’s Hospital affiliated to Nanjing Medical University has been significantly improved. In this event, Professor Pan Changjie, director of the medical imaging department and nuclear medicine department of the hospital, said that in the past, the diagnosis of a single coronary case usually took 15-20 minutes from the doctor’s reading of the film to the issuance of the report. After the product is applied to the film reading process, it only takes 3-5 minutes from the data loading to the final film printing. According to the calculation that the hospital accepts 400 to 500 coronary patients per month, it can save nearly 100 hours in a single month, thereby helping to improve the efficiency of diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease in all aspects and reduce the workload of doctors.
