Aidoc receives FDA clearance for pneumothorax triage solution Leave a comment

Aidoc has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its triage and notification of pneumothorax on X-ray exams. Aidoc’s other seven FDA-cleared solutions are already implemented across U.S. health systems, flagging, and communicating suspected pathologies in CT exams.

Aidoc’s newly FDA-cleared solution runs on all X-ray machines including portable ones and is designed to analyse X-ray images. It automatically flags positive cases of pneumothorax, facilitating physicians to read X-rays in a timely manner.

The ability to quickly identify pneumothorax is imperative as it can worsen rapidly and result in respiratory or cardiac failure. This however is easier said than done, due to the extensive imaging volumes radiologists must continuously examine. Aidoc’s highly accurate AI pneumothorax algorithm addresses this challenge by analysing X-rays, flagging, and notifying physicians of the suspected findings.

Elad Walach, CEO of Aidoc, said: “We’re very excited about this important milestone. This FDA clearance further validates the breadth of our AI platform, going beyond specific AI algorithms to act as a healthcare AI hub for the enterprise’s cross-specialty needs. This includes ER, ICU, outpatient centres, inpatient admissions, and the coordination of care and communication among providers. By bringing radiologists and proceduralists to the same AI platform, we enable enhanced collaboration across departments and systems to deliver patients with the right treatment at the right time.”

Aidoc’s AI platform processes high volumes of scans and images without disrupting the physician’s workflow. Existing partners of Aidoc, who add the pneumothorax solution to their portfolio, will not require any additional integration, infrastructure, or maintenance efforts.
