Nuance reveals new imaging network at RSNA 2021

 

The Express Systems and Parts family had its own booth at the RSNA annual meeting that took place in Chicago last week. Learned a lot, Express staff met a lot of leading companies and manufacturers from all around the world. They connected and reconnected with those they met remotely during the pandemic. 

 

In addition to many other inventions and services by known gigantic companies, one of the things that really surprised the Express team was the new Precision Imaging Network! Produced and developed by the software company Nuance Communications, the Network is an AI-powered cloud platform that delivers patient-specific data and insights from diagnostic imaging into existing clinical and administrative workflows across the healthcare ecosystem, which leads to helping relieve overburdened physicians.

 

Unveiled at RSNA 2021, this tool is driven by its PowerScribe and PowerShare solutions, used by 80% of U.S. radiologists and connecting more than 10,000 facilities. It also would connect these stakeholders, deploy AI to bolster diagnostics, increase doc efficiency and lower costs.

 

Officer Peter Durlach, Chief Strategy Officer at Nuance stated that the tool is sort of an electronic version of a pre-read on the image. He added that it uses technology to put another set of eyes on the vast majority of imaging in the country Instead of relying on the radiologist who is overworked and overburdened and might not even have access to all of the images for each patient.

 

As we all know, diagnostic imaging is very important in our lives. A study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association stated that more than 80 percent of all hospital and health system visits included at least one imaging study, which means the Nuance Precision Imaging Network will help clinicians and facilitate earlier detection and treatment of diseases.

 

Nuance runs on Azure, which is a cloud computing service operated by Microsoft, which recently announced its intent to acquire Nuance for nearly $20 billion.
