We improve radiology workflow to reduce under-reporting and provide prioritizing patients using AI by auto detecting up to 14 brain lesions


The global CT scanners market size is poised to grow by USD 1.79 billion during 2020-2024

Projected increase: CAGR of 6.5% by 2026.

23 million brain computed tomographies a year

52 million CT scans are performed annually, and over 51 million within the EEA

Key issues

Problem owner
  • hospital managers are facing significant delays in image interpretations
  • our solution improves radiology workflow by (not limited to) fast classification and prioritization
Workforce shortage
  • data: 7% global data volume growth
  • technical advancement
  • aging of radiology personnel
Population aging
  • 25% in 2030 > age 65
  • more imaging diagnostics required

Based on the analysis of more than 246 108 brain CT scans, we developed a CE certified system

  • unique range of pathologies - up to 26 classes
  • triage - wide # of pathologies detected help prioritizing emergency patients
  • prevent under-reporting
  • complex brain diagnostic
  • seamless integration powered by BrainScan cloud solution

BrainScan is a vertical solution that focus on the brain scans, but horizontal in the meaning of number of lesions detected

How does it work?

CT Scanning
The series of scans from the machine is sent as DICOM files to the PACS server. The script filters all brain CT scans. Anonymizes them and forward to the BrainScan Cloud.
Algorithms powered by Artificial Intelligence automatically analyze scans finding potential pathological changes. The results are saved in a form of infographic and are visible by the doctors as the next serie in the study and saved in a DICOM file.
The results of the analysis in a form of infographic (an additional series saved in the DICOM file) and in a structured text form (JSON file) are returned to the PACS server from which they were sent. The advantages of a form of infographic is that it is available in every DICOM viewers used by doctors.
