Annalise.ai has announced the launch of Annalise Triage—an innovative software solution tailored specifically for the US market that the company claims will “transform the radiology field by empowering radiologists to efficiently triage studies and prioritise those with suspected critical findings, ultimately streamlining their workflow, and supporting faster time-to-diagnosis for urgent conditions”.
Annalise Triage boasts an “impressive” array of 12 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared findings, including five for chest X-ray (CXR) and seven for non-contrast head computed tomography (CTB). Readily available for use across the USA, this comprehensive offering has received 510(k) clearance and the coveted breakthrough designation for obstructive hydrocephalus, Annalise.ai states in a press release. Notably, the company also claims, Annalise Triage is the only radiology triage device to have received this distinction.
By implementing Annalise Triage, radiologists can swiftly and accurately detect a range of critical, time-sensitive conditions from unenhanced head CT studies, including acute subdural haematoma, acute subarachnoid haemorrhage, intra-axial haemorrhage, intraventricular haemorrhage, obstructive hydrocephalus, mass effect, and vasogenic oedema. Annalise Triage further enables identification of pleural effusion, pneumoperitoneum, vertebral compression fracture, pneumothorax and tension pneumothorax on chest X-rays.
In light of growing imaging backlogs and radiology workforce shortages, Annalise Triage is strategically positioned to address the pressing need to improve workflow efficiency in US radiology, an Annalise.ai press release notes.
“Our advanced algorithms support radiologists by facilitating prioritisation of studies with suspected critical findings, thereby optimising radiology workflow,” said Rick Abramson, the company’s chief medical officer. “With its set of clearances, Annalise.ai promotes faster report turnaround times by identifying and elevating critical cases for immediate attention.”
