Envision Healthcare, a leading national medical group, today announced that its radiologists are successfully leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance clinical evaluations and the delivery of high-quality, patient-centered care. The newly implemented AI software assists radiologists with disease detection, case prioritization and diagnosis, and has been optimized to detect three common and consequential medical emergencies: intracranial hemorrhages, pulmonary embolisms and cervical spine fractures.
This technology is being rolled out to radiologists using Envision’s exclusive platform. AI software provides additional support in analyzing medical images and notifies radiologists of suspected findings to assist them in prioritizing time-sensitive conditions, such as a stroke or perforated bowel. Using AI to help enhance diagnostic accuracy and prioritize acute cases, patients can receive more timely treatment based on their condition and acuity level.
