“KOALA (Knee-OA Labeling Assistant) simplifies clinical workflow by automatically detecting radiographic features of OA and providing a detailed output report. This allows clinicians to increase throughput by automating the analysis and reporting on routine x-rays,” says IBLAB Co-Founder, and COO Christoph Götz.
“Through our partnership with ImageBiopsy Lab, we are further expanding syngo.via to include additional MSK/orthopaedic AI-based solutions onto the platform”, says Oliver Klinkow, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Syngo.
ImageBiopsy Lab’s KOALA utilizes artificial intelligence and the algorithm has been trained on a high number of knee-OA cases from various clinical sites, thus resulting in AI-based technology that performs on a level comparable to expert reading. It can contribute to more standardized decision making and a safer, less subjective assessment in disease progression assessments.
“Delivering AI-based MSK solutions to radiologists requires a powerful, yet flexible platform with no additional infrastructure needed. Syngo.via and the teamplay platform are offering physicians an easy and cost-effective way of testing and ultimately using various radiology applications without adding additional complexity or time investments to the existing infrastructure. Once a platform like syngo.via or teamplay is available, new software apps like our KOALA can be added in minutes. We look forward to working with Siemens Healthineers to bring our growing portfolio of MSK solutions to the world of musculoskeletal radiology and orthopaedic surgery.” says Philip Meier, Chief Commercial Officer and Co-founder at IBLAB.
IBLAB KOALA will be made available in syngo.via OpenApps in selected EU countries and the US and can be accessed directly from the Siemens Healthineers Digital Marketplace.
