iSchemaView Introduces RAPID ANGIO-A neuroimaging solution
By MedTech Outlook | Thursday, March 21, 2019
iSchemaView, a pioneer in advanced imaging for stroke care and research has launched RAPID ANGIO, a neuroimaging solution for the angiography suite. The California-based enterprise partnered with Siemens to integrate the Rapid Software with Siemens’ Syngo DynaCT multiphase system for the newly launched imaging system.
Syngo DynaCT Multiphase is a 3D image acquisition technique that uses multiple rotations of a C-arm system to acquire a multi-phasic 3D representation of the brain and its perfusion. The amalgamation of this technology with the RAPID platform’s clinically validated CTP product, delivers a robust imaging solution to the angio suite for acute stroke patients.
“The RAPID ANGIO module, combining the best-in-class syngo DynaCT system with the RAPID platform, allows for the direct evaluation of acute stroke patients in the angiography procedure room, saving precious time,” said Anil Singhal, MD, SVP, Worldwide Operations at iSchemaView. “RAPID ANGIO provides the most comprehensive real-time brain images for use in stroke treatment decisions, making this integration the most sophisticated angiography neuroimaging option available today.”
This RAPID platform provides clear and easy-to-interpret CT perfusion maps that easily identify brain regions that have reduced cerebral blood flow and volume and also has delayed contrast arrival; it is the only neuroimaging platform FDA cleared for a thrombectomy indication.
"RAPID directly in the angio suite will help our specialists treat the right patients even faster,” said Professor Jian Ming Liu, Director of Neurosurgery Center, Changhai Hospital, China. “Having the most advanced RAPID technology available in both the radiology department and the operating theater provides the best options for our doctors and patients.”
RAPID ANGIO runs on the RAPID AI structure which combines deep learning, machine learning, and future expert extraction. The combination of all these provides unparalleled sensitivity and specificity across stroke modules. The RAPID Intelligence Services Platform then delivers these results via PACS, text, emails, the RAPID APP or corporate partner workflow systems.
