Viz.ai has announced the launch of Viz Vascular Suite—artificial intelligence (AI)-powered software enabling vascular care teams to automatically detect and triage care for suspected pulmonary embolism, right heart strain, aortic dissection, and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The company submitted a new 510(k) application to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the AAA algorithm, a press release notes.
“Recognizing the symptoms of serious vascular conditions, such as aortic dissections, is hugely important because any delay in treatment can have a direct impact on patient outcomes,” said Philip Batista, MD, Cooper University Health Care, Camden, New Jersey. “When Viz identifies an abnormal scan, it quickly notifies the appropriate specialists regardless of their location, facilitating seamless communication via mobile application. We have been using the Viz software for the last several months and have seen improvements in patient care across our institution.”
Viz.ai says that the Viz Vascular Suite uses AI to automatically analyze an array of imaging modalities, including computerized tomography (CT), electrocardiogram (ECG), and more for suspected vascular diseases. If a suspected pathology is found, the app automatically alerts and displays high-fidelity patient scans on providers’ mobile devices. Clinicians can use Viz Vascular Suite to remotely coordinate vascular pathology care within a hospital system’s hub and spoke network and enable synchronous, HIPAA-compliant communication among specialists. The platform is enhanced by AI for immediate team activation and facilitates informed, efficient treatment decisions.
