SonoLystlive, powered by Intelligent Ultrasound’s ScanNav AI, launches on new GE Healthcare Voluson Expert Series ultrasound machines

PRESS RELEASE 11th September 2023: Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM: IUG), the ‘classroom to clinic’ ultrasound company, specialising in artificial intelligence (AI) software and simulation, announces that GE Healthcare has launched SonoLystlive onto its latest version of the Voluson Expert Series portfolio of ultrasound machines.

Powered by Intelligent Ultrasound’s ScanNav AI software, SonoLystlive takes ultrasound image recognition to the next level by automatically capturing images in real-time, as the clinician scans a mid-trimester patient. Using practice guidelines from the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG), the AI software automatically recognises the anatomy, captures the image and checks it off the list of required views. By minimising the need to manually freeze, annotate and store images, the software significantly reduces keystrokes and exam time for sonographers.

This new technology further builds on Intelligent Ultrasound’s long-term partnership agreement with GE HealthCare, which already incorporated Intelligent Ultrasound’s AI technology as an option add-on in its SonoLyst X/IR software on the Voluson Expert 22 and SWIFT ultrasound machines.

SonoLystlive was demonstrated live at the International Symposium on Fetal Anomalies in London, on the 9 and 10 September by Prof Aris Papageorghiou. The full launch will take place at the ISUOG World Congress in Seoul, South Korea from the 16-19 October.

Stuart Gall, CEO of Intelligent Ultrasound, commented:

“We are delighted that, by incorporating SonoLystlive onto its Voluson Expert Series ultrasound machines[1],  GE Healthcare is leading the way in using AI software to improve obstetric workflows for the benefit of clinicians and patients. The Voluson Expert Series is a market-leading ultrasound machine in the global women’s healthcare obstetrics market and SonoLystlive is a fantastic example of how AI software can help save scanning time, whilst de-stressing the scanning environment for the sonographer.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with GE HealthCare and we remain excited that our novel ‘classroom-to-clinic’ approach is making clinical diagnostic ultrasound easier to learn and simpler to use.”
