Siemens Healthineers introduces AI-Rad Companion Chest CT as first application based on its new AI-Rad Companion platform
Erlangen, Nov 25, 2018

  • AI-Rad Companion Chest CT is an AI-based software assistant for computed tomography.
  • It identifies and measures organs and lesions on CT images of the thorax, and automatically generates a quantitative report.
  • It can help increase productivity and quality in radiology.

At the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, USA, Siemens Healthineers will be presenting its first intelligent software assistant for radiology, which can identify organs and potentially disease-relevant changes. AI-Rad Companion Chest CT is a software assistant that brings artificial intelligence (AI) to computed tomography (CT). Teams of Siemens Healthineers scientists trained the underlying algorithms based on extensive clinical datasets. Using CT images of the thorax (chest), the software can differentiate between the various structures of the chest, highlight them individually, and mark and measure potential abnormalities. This applies equally to organs such as the heart and lungs, the aorta and the vertebral bodies. The software automatically turns the findings into a quantitative report.


AI-Pathway Companion from Siemens Healthineers supports decisions along the clinical pathway, with artificial intelligence
Erlangen Nov 25, 2018 

  • Expanding precision medicine along the clinical pathway with AI-based decision support
  • Intelligent integration of relevant data helps to accelerate diagnostic and treatment decisions
  • Enables personalized and standardized patient management
  • Provides transparency of clinical pathway performance with data analytics

At the Congress of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2018) in Chicago, USA, Siemens Healthineers is presenting AI-Pathway Companion for the first time. It is a clinical decision support system based on artificial intelligence that supports physicians in making diagnostic and therapeutic decisions along the clinical pathway. While numerous applications in the healthcare market make the workflows of individual clinical or administrative departments more efficient, the AI-Pathway Companion is designed to help optimize the processes along the clinical pathways and thus the overall success of patient management. The AI-Pathway Companion provides physicians in multi-disciplinary disease boards with the clinical status of each patient, based on data integration and artificial intelligence, and makes suggestions for next steps. The first clinical application will apply to prostate cancer.
