CT Lung AI package

Embedded intelligence, supporting the clinical workflow.
Powered by RUBEE® AI

Healthcare systems across the globe are exploring the potential application and benefits of Artificial Intelligence when it comes to improving quality care, focusing on outcomes.

The path towards realizing the benefits opens another opportunity: addressing the interoperability and integration aspects. Already, there are hundreds of start-ups and AI developers working in the healthcare arena, each focusing on highly specific applications. Selecting which ones you need, and then integrating them into your system and workflows, is far from simple.

RUBEE® AI, as part of your Enterprise Imaging Platform, offers a seamless AI experience for your clinicians. Carefully curated ‘packages’ embed best-of-breed AI apps that work seamlessly to support your real clinical workflow from start to finish.

You get more out of your AI investments, while enriching the value of your Enterprise Imaging. It’s a win-win-win for your hospital, your clinicians and your patients.

What is RUBEE AI?

With RUBEE AI, you can embed our AI specialty packages into your clinical workflows.

RUBEE visualizes the metadata generated by algorithms such as deep learning, machine learning, image analysis and natural language processing. It also uses that information to automate and optimize your workflows, all within your Enterprise Imaging ecosystem.

Forward-thinking and clinically relevant

‘Augmented Intelligence’ does just that: offering a set of tools that let your clinicians maximize the value of their own expertise, increase their productivity and enhance the diagnostic process. But to get the real benefits to your clinicians, the tools need to be embedded right into the workflows and systems they use every day.

Your Enterprise Imaging already offers a forward-thinking, multi-specialty platform that consolidates your hospital’s wealth of data. With RUBEE AI, it also becomes your AI enabled ecosystem.

Standards-based workflows are embedded with niche and specialty-focused AI apps, delivering clinical relevance. No need for an additional complex and costly dedicated AI platform or marketplace. And, instead of worrying about which apps to select and how to integrate them, you are leaping ahead with an ecosystem of seamlessly embedded AI.

Best-of-Class AI apps, Specialty Packages

We have taken the guesswork out of your AI journey. Our AI specialty packages have been carefully curated to enable interoperability and integration of best-of-class algorithms. You can be confident that all the algorithms come from reliable companies, and trained on evidence-based data.

Most of all, they are powered by RUBEE AI, to help meet your specific clinical needs from start to finish. So, there’s no ‘trial and error’: just proven value.

Enrich your Enterprise, Imaging workflows

With AI fully embedded in your Enterprise Imaging Platform, your clinicians see benefits all along the line.

  • Task assignments and case distribution are smoothly automated, based on the metadata generated from the AI apps
  • Hanging protocols get ‘smart’, with dedicated reading protocols
  • Report automation by auto-including AI results into the reporting workflow

Offering advanced visualizations, workflow optimization and automation, RUBEE AI helps your clinicians to focus their efforts on cases that require immediate attention.

Evidence-based, workflow-centric AI application

powered by ClearRead™CT

For confident reading

RUBEE AI brings carefully curated augmented intelligence packages for your Enterprise Imaging clinical workflows. The AGFA HealthCare CT Lung AI Package is powered by ClearRead™CT: a transformative, concurrent-read AI product.

  • Enterprise-wide capability powered by acquisition normalization technology that allows “plug in” capability across all CT manufacturers and diverse imaging protocols
  • A vessel suppressed CT data series that aids both machine and humans in the detection and characterization of nodules
  • Explicit targeting of all primary nodule types: solid, sub-solid and ground-glass
  • Precise characterization of detected nodules afforded by vessel suppression

ClearRead CT is the first FDA-cleared system for concurrent reading, for all nodule types, with a demonstrated capability to improve efficiency and accuracy.

ClearRead offers:

  • The first FDA-cleared system for concurrent reading, for all nodule types
  • Processing of scans from a wide range of manufacturers and acquisition protocols
  • Unprecedented detection, segmentation and characterization accuracy of lung nodules
  • Support for non-contrast and contrast chest CT and operates on slices with section thicknesses up to 3mm.
  • Reduced burden of visual search and assessment by suppressing vascular structure.

Improved reader accuracy and reading time:

  2. Actionable nodules are image locations in the CT series with suspicious nodular features, i.e., characteristics, for which radiologist(s) recommends further examination, typically through analysis of a prior exam and/or additional imaging such as follow up CT, diagnostic CT, PET-CT, etc.

ClearRead CT | Vessel Suppress

Powered by machine learning and advanced modeling, ClearRead CT | Vessel suppress provides a novel view for the radiologist. Through the suppression of vascular structures, the radiologist is able to focus on nodular structures rather than distracting vascular structures. The vessel suppression technology allows the radiologist to see how the application interprets the data at the finest level of detail, providing insight into the CAD’s decision process.
