MedaPhor commences clinical trial for AnatomyGuide

MedaPhor (AIM:MED), the intelligent ultrasound software and simulation company, announces it is commencing a clinical trial within the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board to capture data for its AnatomyGuide artificial intelligence (AI) software for ultrasound-guided anaesthetic procedures such as peripheral nerve blocks. Increasingly, ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks are being used as a safer and more cost-effective alternative to general anaesthesia but not all anaesthetists have the specialist knowledge of ultrasound anatomy to perform them. AnatomyGuide provides software support and guidance to aid less experienced clinicians during the procedure. Using deep-learning techniques on a data set of thousands of real-patient images, the [...]

MedaPhor assists the INTERGROWTH-21st project at the University of Oxford

MedaPhor, the intelligent ultrasound software and simulation company, has provided valuable assistance to The International Fetal and Newborn Growth (INTERGROWTH-21st) Consortium led by the University of Oxford. The Consortium has developed new international standards describing optimal fetal and newborn growth, which are being incorporated into clinical care around the world to improve health outcomes. The INTERGROWTH-21st Project involved collecting data throughout pregnancy, including over 500,000 fetal ultrasound images, from healthy women in eight geographically diverse regions of the world. To classify the anatomical structures in those images automatically, the Consortium applied MedaPhor’s ScanNav® intelligent ultrasound technology, which uses AI algorithms and deep [...]
