AI Saving Brain: FDA Clears Aidoc's Complete AI Stroke Package

#artificialintelligence

Aidoc, the leading provider of AI solutions for radiologists, today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared its AI solution for flagging Large-Vessel Occlusion (LVO) in head CTA scans, marking Aidoc's fourth FDA-cleared AI package. Combined with Aidoc's previously-cleared AI module for flagging and prioritizing intracranial hemorrhage, together they provide a comprehensive AI package for the identification and triage of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke in CTs, speeding time to treatment when every minute counts. "Stroke is the ultimate time-critical condition," said Dr. Marcel Maya, Co-chair Department of Imaging, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "The faster we can identify, diagnose and treat it, the better the outcome for patients. Aidoc's comprehensive stroke package flags both large vessel occlusion and hemorrhages inside our existing workflows, ensuring we can diagnose stroke faster and decide on the best course of treatment. We're already seeing how this has a positive impact on department efficiency and patient length of stay."
