Attendees at this year’s American Society of Neuroimaging annual meeting will have their first opportunity to see and hear how quantitative MRI (qMRI) and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) tools are now practical for – and being used in — everyday clinical practice. QSM is just one of the advanced outputs available with STAGE and is… “ASN 2023: The Arrival of Practical QSM Tools Enhanced for Everyday Clinical Practice”
A new report from UPMC’s Center for Connected Medicine and KLAS Research about the AI use cases that health systems are prioritizing over the next few years includes findings about plans for radiology AI that raise two important questions for neuroradiologists and healthcare leaders: Based on a survey of 58 executives and senior managers at… “Health system priorities for AI and two important questions for radiology leaders”
Radiologists, neurologists, Alzheimer’s patients and their families are rightfully encouraged by the range of new drugs in development to slow or reduce cognitive decline. At the start of 2023 there were 187 trials for 141 drugs addressing Alzheimer’s pathologies. Two drugs, aducanumab and lecanemab, have received accelerated FDA approval in the past two years. A… “STAGE and the Promise and Challenges of New Alzheimer’s Drug Therapies”
There have been a growing number of efforts to improve the balance between MRI speed and image quality while addressing priority concerns about radiologist burnout, staffing shortages, health system financial stability and the clinical needs of an aging population. Methods including mobile dockable exam tables, redesigned MRI suites, and AI-based image reconstruction have shown the… “To Improve MRI Speed, Quality and Efficiency, Start at the Source”
Improving MRI efficiency to improve access to advanced imaging, provider and patient experiences, and health system revenues has been a long-standing goal for radiologists and health system administrators. That’s been true long before the development of radiology AI models for workflow orchestration, task automation and augmented diagnosis. Radiologists have used a variety of practical and… “Clarity, Speed and Confidence vs. “Widgets”: The key to MRI efficiency”
A view from the front lines at a community health system, with Dr. James Backstrom.
While there’s no doubt that AI-based solutions can play a valuable role in diagnostic imaging, many of the radiology and health system leaders we spoke with at the 2022 RSNA conference were are asking an important question: are today’s AI models the right solutions for improving MRI efficiency? We heard that and similar questions especially… “Improving MRI Efficiency Begins With Asking The Right Questions”
To understand the significance of the SpinTech MRI STAGE software platform, it helps to begin by asking a question: Given that MRI is an incredibly powerful diagnostic tool for neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis (MS), why have radiologists and neurologists had to choose between conducting faster MRI exams and obtaining higher-quality… “Do you really have to sacrifice MRI image quality for speed?”
SpinTech MRI to Expand Deployment of STAGE™ Software to Speed Diagnosis and Treatment of Brain Diseases with $6.5 Million in Series A Financing, Led by Level 8 Ventures and Genesis Innovation Group’s Cultivate(MD) Capital Fund
Ward Detwiler, our President and CEO, had the opportunity to speak about how STAGE is innovating the world of MR at MedTech Strategist Innovation 2021.
