November 21, 2017

Ideal architecture unifies research and diagnostic imaging for the first time

SAN DIEGO, CA, November 21, 2017 – Visage Imaging, Inc. (“Visage”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. (ASX: PME), has announced today that it will debut its artificial intelligence (AI) offerings at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2017 annual meeting (Visage Kiosk 8149M, North Hall B) as part of the inaugural RSNA Machine Learning Showcase (November 26-30, Chicago, Illinois).

Significant promise and investment are driving a wide range of AI initiatives in healthcare IT particularly in the area of Enterprise Imaging. The company’s vision is to utilize its R&D capability and market leading technology to deliver cutting-edge AI offerings to optimize Enterprise Imaging worldwide.

Visage will showcase technology that makes Visage® 7 the first and only system to combine both AI research and AI assisted diagnostic interpretation in the same Enterprise Imaging platform.

“Historically, imaging platforms for research and diagnostic purposes have been totally separate,” said Malte Westerhoff PhD, Co-founder and Global CTO of Visage Imaging. Dr. Westerhoff continued, “Visage’s GPU-based architecture is ideal for AI and, combined with our open APIs, will enable us to unify research and diagnostic imaging in ways not available before. This will enable AI breakthroughs to advance patient care by giving radiologists faster access to new tools that help increase productivity and improve clinical accuracy.”

The company will also show algorithms working on the ultrafast and highly scalable Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform. Both internally developed algorithms as well as third party algorithms from academic institutions and other companies will be demonstrated.

“AI is evolving rapidly and has the potential to transform Enterprise Imaging in ways previously not imagined,” said Dr. Sam Hupert, CEO of Visage Imaging. “We are well placed to capitalize on this transformation as we look to leverage our three key assets, namely our R&D capability, our technology platform and our growing base of blue chip clients.”

The company’s first AI innovations for Visage 7 are works-in-progress and are scheduled to be released in the first half of 2018.

In addition to their RSNA Machine Learning Showcase kiosk, Visage will also be exhibiting the industry leading Visage 7 in RSNA Visage Booth 4365, McCormick Place-South Hall A.
