The past couple of days have seen a handful of artificial intelligence algorithms for radiology imaging analysis receive 510(k) clearances from the FDA. Two of these, from Quantib and Ezra, are focused on the relatively untouched area of prostate cancer screening, while a third, from Aidoc, targets incidental pulmonary embolism. Quantib's software delivers an in-workflow assessment of prostate...

The past week has seen two FDA clearances awarded to Israeli companies building artificial intelligence analysis tools for medical imaging. The first, announced last Tuesday, was Aidoc’s tool for triaging cervical spine fractures. Much like the company’s prior offerings, the new product analyzes images to prioritize high-risk cases for review by a radiologist, and does so within the specialist’s...

Kibbutz Shefayim, Israel-based deep learning startup Zebra Medical Vision announced yesterday that it has received an 510(k) clearance for an artificial intelligence tool that can read medical imaging to identify potential cases of pneumothorax — a build-up of gas between a lung and the chest wall. The HealthPNX product scans a chest X-ray or digital radiography scan for signs of the condition,...
