GE Healthcare has introduced a suite of eight artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that analyse chest X-ray findings to help alleviate clinical strain resulting from Covid-19.

The Thoracic Care Suite analyses chest X-rays and flags abnormalities such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, lung nodules and other findings to radiologists for review.

Upon reading the flagged report in picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiologists can quickly find the abnormality score for each of the eight possible abnormalities, an image overlay, and a written location description to help expedite diagnosis and treatment.

GE Healthcare president and CEO Kieran Murphy said: “The launch of our Thoracic Care Suite is a part of GE Healthcare’s larger effort to help ensure clinicians and partners on the front lines have the equipment they need to quickly diagnose and effectively treat Covid-19. The pandemic has proven that data, analytics, AI and connectivity will only become more central to delivering care.”
