Fujifilm integrates AI software to help identify bone trauma at the point of care

Fujifilm has partnered with medical technology company Gleamer to integrate AI into its x-ray imaging systems. BoneView AI software is designed to assist radiologists and emergency clinicians in the diagnosis of skeletal fractures. It uses advanced algorithms to detect and localise lesions on x-rays, graphically highlighting areas of interest, before submitting the images to radiologists for validation.

Fujifilm x-ray systems are equipped with a new image processing box called EX-Mobile, enabling connection with BoneView software. Results are available within 30 seconds at the point of care, providing healthcare professionals with additional support to help improve patient management.

The software can be seamlessly integrated into Fujifilm’s x-ray modality line-up, making it suited to small or remote clinics, up to large multi-function institutions.

A clinical trial involving appendicular skeletal fractures found that BoneView reduced the number of false-positives by 41.9 per cent and improved fracture detection sensitivity and specificity. These results are supported by another study involving additional anatomical locations, where AI assistance reduced radiograph reading times by 6.3 seconds per patient.

Gleamer ceo Christian Allouche commented: “Having Fujifilm on board has been crucial in the development of this product and to get it in front of the clinicians that need it. AI technologies are becoming increasingly established in the medical sector and really proving their value. Any medical innovation is about improving the care of the patient, and BoneView promises to do just that.”
