HOW PROPRIETARY RADIOLOGY SOFTWARE FAST-TRACKS LIFE-SAVING PROCEDURES
A top radiation oncology treatments and software maker was looking to improve performance with greater patient throughput and shorter treatment times. Before partnering with Ness, it would take a Dosimetrist up to 5 hours to manually contour – with contouring software – one CT image with an error rate of 7% on organ scans. This process greatly limited the number of patients that could be served on a given day.
Through our Native Development process, we created an AI platform which can host a 1400+ models-based algorithm to auto-segment CT scan images and identify various organs within CT scan images.
The software reduced image contouring time to from up to 5 hours to 30 seconds and Radiologist review time from 6 hours to 5 minutes – making potentially life-improving processes more readily available for both doctors and patients.
