Occlusion of intracranial vessels by a thrombus can lead to acute cerebrovascular accident (CVA) with focal neurologic deficit which may include paralysis, slurred speech or diplopia. Early diagnosis and treatment are very vital. Our AI algorithm will be able to detect acute stroke on MRI Diffusion weighted images and will be able to alert the physician or emergency services, before full radiology reads become available.
Early detection of stroke is critical to ensure minimal loss function and early recovery. This is where AI algorithms can have its greatest impact to ensure early and accurate stroke detection. Our MRI stroke detection algorithm is unique which detects acute stroke on DWI and ADC images to minimize false positivity. This time sensitive information can lead to significant improvement of clinical outcomes with early interventions.
Missed strokes can have severe consequences for patients as it may delay or exclude treatment options that may be available. Neurologists and neurosurgeons depend heavily on radiology reports to develop optimal treatment plans. In an acute stroke patient, when “Time is Brain”, a timely and accurate report is critical to determine if the patient needs tPA (thrombolytics) or other neurosurgical interventions. For this reason, VAI radiology has developed an AI algorithm to help radiologists to optimize accuracy when evaluating for brain hemorrhage. This AI algorithm is conjuncture with radiologist read to provide accurate reports.
