Surgalign Holdings Announces Collaboration with Inteneural Networks, a Leading Developer of Artificial Intelligence for Clinical Neurosciences


DEERFIELD, Ill., June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surgalign Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SRGA), a global medical technology company focused on elevating the standard of care through the evolution of digital surgery, and Inteneural Networks Inc., a developer of innovative artificial intelligence (AI) based applications focused on fully autonomous analytics of central nervous system imaging, today announced that they have entered into a strategic collaboration agreement. Under the agreement, Surgalign will gain access to Inteneural's proprietary technology for evaluation of future integration within the Surgalign digital surgery portfolio. Inteneural is the developer and owner of proprietary intellectual property that allows computers to autonomously segment and identify neural structures in medical images and rapidly deliver reference information using machine learning alogrithims. These algorithms have potential for future applications in cranial and neurosurgery for referencing of tumor, aneurysm, stroke, and neurovascular structures using existing magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography technology. "While our initial focus is the application of digital surgery in spine procedures, we have a much more expansive vision for what we believe is possible with emerging technologies. New developments in the application of AI in neurosurgery and medical imaging make it an attractive space to further expand. Inteneural has developed machine learning-based analytics and fully autonomous brain anatomy segmentation capabilities that would be incredibly powerful when combined with neurosurgery," said Terry Rich, Surgalign Chief Executive Officer.
