Radiology visualisation platform features AI for assessment of the complex lung conditions associated with COVID-19
Royal Philips has launched IntelliSpace Portal 12 for radiologists, the next generation of the Philips Advanced Visualization Workspace. A set of AI-assisted quantitative assessment and automatic results generation features support the diagnostic workflow, including follow-up and communication across cardiology, pulmonology, oncology and neurology. Its AI-assisted pulmonary capabilities include the assessment of complex lung conditions associated with COVID-19.
“In the COVID-19 era, the automatic detection and characterisation of pulmonary infiltrates, especially in viral pneumonia, is very important,” said professor and chairman of radiology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, Hans-Ulrich Kauczor.
“IntelliSpace Portal’s AI-assisted quantitative assessment capabilities allow general radiologists and residents on call to get the necessary support to help identify COVID-19 pneumonia, which is differentiated from other diagnoses. This also plays a significant role for longitudinal analysis and follow-up.”
Philips general manager of enterprise diagnostic informatics Calum Cunningham added: “The immediate and complex long-term needs of COVID-19 patients, combined with the growth of elective care, has highlighted the continued need for advanced fully integrated radiology solutions that support efficient diagnosis, follow-up and communication across multiple clinical domains. The new generation of IntelliSpace Portal adds numerous AI-enabled features that automatically generate quantitative measurements, simplify workflows, and make radiology data available anywhere it is clinically relevant in an organisation.”
The software also includes photorealistic volume rendering using an interactive light source.
