Endotracheal Tube Positioning*
As many as 25% of intubations outside of the operating room result in mispositioned ET Tubes, which can lead to severe complications2-6.
Critical Care Suite’s Endotracheal Tube Positioning AI algorithm is now available on AMX 240 mobile X-ray systems.
Confidence at Point of Care
- Provides an accurate and automated measurement of ET Tube position on the mobile X-ray device within seconds of image acquisition
- The vertical distance of the tube tip and the carina is automatically calculated and displayed on device.
- The average error for the ETT automated measurement is less than 1mm when calculating the vertical distance7.
ET Tube Cases at a Glance
- Enables immediate access to AI-derived measurements in PACS worklist via configurable DICOM® tags
- Displays AI-generated measurements with an image overlay in PACS
Pneumothorax Triage and Notification
The Pneumothorax Notification is included in Critical Care Suite 2.0 and is available on AMX 240 mobile X-ray systems as well as Definium™ 656 HD and Definium 646 HD fixed X-ray systems.
- Detects nearly all large pneumothoraces (96% sensitivity).
- Identifies 3 out of 4 small pneumothoraces (75% sensitivity).
- Limits false alerts (94% specificity).
- An Area Under Curve (AUC) of 0.96.
- Sends a secondary capture DICOM image to PACS and presents the AI results to the radiologist
- Image flags help enable worklist prioritization and have the potential to expedite review of critical findings
“The Critical Care Suite using AI to improve the speed of detection of pneumothoraces is an excellent example of how the use of modern technology will have a real impact on the delivery of medical care.”
Quality Care Suite
"We are overall very happy with the performance of the algorithm and currently using it for routine patient care. CCS represents the easiest implementation of novel radiology software, specifically AI-integration, that I have encountered in my career."
“The Critical Care Suite provided a useful adjunct to the identification of pneumothorax in the setting of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Pneumothorax in the setting of Cardiothoracic Surgery is common and despite the requirement for intensive monitoring in the peri-operative setting, the Critical Care Suite was able to identify pneumothoraces with a high level of accuracy.”
** The technologist notification is generated 15 mins after exam closure. It is contextual and does not provide any diagnostic information. The on-device, technologist notification is not intended to inform any clinical decision, prioritization, or action.
