CGI has joined forces with Planmeca and Helsinki University Hospital for the development of an artificial intelligence (AI) solution for radiologists.
Called AI Head Analysis, the new AI solution enables radiologists to interpret computerised tomography (CT) scans and identify common types of non-traumatic brain haemorrhages.
The collaboration was formed under CleverHealth Network, a research and innovation ecosystem coordinated by Helsinki University Hospital to develop data-based healthcare.
The partnership is a crucial component of CGI’s environmental, social and governance strategy.
Recently, the solution received approval for retrospective testing in the workflow at Helsinki University Hospital.
Radiologists and the AI solution first analyse the images independently. The two analyses can be compared, once the radiologist makes the diagnosis.
CGI Finland operations president Leena-Mari Lähteenmaa said: “The AI Head Analysis is a highly unique and innovative solution that may help save many lives in the future from a condition that is both challenging to detect and treat.
“The solution also demonstrates how CGI is committed to using its expertise and the power of technology to improve the well-being of communities and citizens.”
CGI, the Helsinki University Hospital and Planmeca worked together to develop AI algorithms for the new solution.
The solution analyses data collected from various imaging devices in hospitals. It uses this data to develop and clinically test algorithms to comply with strict regulatory standards.
Furthermore, the solution utilises AI algorithms to identify head CT images that need immediate attention.
Helsinki University Hospital chief innovation officer Miikka Korja said: “Each year, millions of people across the globe are diagnosed with some type of brain haemorrhage – an acute condition that requires a prompt and accurate diagnosis.
“In Finland alone, more than 180,000 head CT scans are performed annually, most of them at emergency clinics.”
