RADLogics obtains FDA's approval for AI-based chest X-Ray App

RADLogics Inc., a healthcare software company developing AI-powered solutions has reportedly received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for its latest AI-Powered chest X-ray pneumothorax application. This clearance provides healthcare professionals, clinics, and hospitals with accessibility to AI software that is qualified to process chest x-rays via pattern analysis, and flag scans for an immediate radiologist examination for a possible pneumothorax, or a collapsed lung.

Sources cite that RADLogics’ chest X-ray solution leverages an AI algorithm to analyze pictures of features suggestive for pneumothorax. Subsequently, it makes case-level outcomes available to a PACS workstation for work list prioritization or triage. The AI-based solution integrates into an efficient, robust, and safe workflow to increase the acute care teams in minutes with profound clinical knowledge and working results. A multi-center study for pneumothorax identification in hundreds of chest x-rays validated and certified the test.

RADLogics made its FDA cleared X-ray and CT technologies accessible in the United States to hospitals and healthcare systems for patient triage and administration in compliance with recommendations for imaging devices and applications for coping with COVID-19 public health emergency. The firm’s algorithms are optimized for quick on-site, cloud integration, and implementation. Its proprietary automation software technology allows quick rollout at several hospitals and smooth alignment of current workflows.

Moshe Becker, CEO, and Co-Founder of RADLogics was quite satisfied with the clearance and said that it would help the company’s AI-powered solutions for CT and X-ray, helping its radiologists who are currently in heavy pressure than ever before. He said that the healthcare industry is in a dire need of such solutions given the current pandemic. With the AI, the challenges faced by the industry can be reduced, he said, adding that the medical sector may also be able to work out on more positive outcomes. 

The firm also announced that the application is available immediately through the Nuance AI Marketplace for Diagnostic Imaging.
