Avicenna.AI's partner - Nuance logo

Marseille, France – 29th June, 2021Avicenna.AI today announced that their FDA-cleared applications for neurovascular emergencies, CINA-ICH & CINALVO, are available on the Nuance® AI Marketplace, the first and largest portal with one-stop access to a wide range of AI diagnostic models from within the industry’s most widely used radiology reporting platform.

CINA offers radiologists an unparalleled solution for triaging patients with positive impact on high occurrence life-threatening pathologies. CINA-ICH and CINA-LVO automatically detect and prioritize acute intracranial hemorrhage and large vessel occlusion cases within 20 seconds, seamlessly alerting the radiologist within their existing systems and workflow.

The Nuance AI Marketplace functions like an app store dedicated to radiology. It gives algorithm developers consolidated, at-scale access to users of Nuance PowerScribe™, the radiology reporting system trusted by approximately 80 percent of U.S. radiologists across more than 9,000 connected healthcare facilities. Radiologists can discover, test, and use AI models from within their familiar Nuance PowerScribe reporting and workflow orchestration solutions to increase reporting efficiency and quality, and to help care teams improve patient outcomes and healthcare costs. A built-in feedback channel lets users share real-world results with developers for model refinement and post-market surveillance. Hospital systems benefit with simplified purchasing and metrics showing AI usage, costs, and performance.

“We are glad to partner with a global partner such as Nuance who shares our same values to put patient care at the core of their business. Together we are committed to transforming medical imaging by empowering radiologists in their daily tasks. Thanks to this partnership and our combined solutions, we aim to advance the future of healthcare,said Cyril Di Grandi, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Avicenna.AI.

Stroke Detection AI Tool Approved for Medicare NTAP

Triage tool for CT Scan

Paris, FRANCE – November 24th, 2020 – Medical imaging AI specialist Avicenna.AI today announced that its CINA Head software qualifies for the new technology add-on payment (NTAP) recently approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The NTAP is available for radiological computer-assisted triage and notification software systems like CINA Head, which analyzes computed tomography angiogram (CTA) images and urgently notifies clinical team members when a suspected large vessel occlusion (LVO) has been identified to reduce time to treatment.

Dr Peter Chang, radiologist and co-founder of Avicenna.AI, said, “AI-enabled CT stroke triage, specifically with LVO detection, is the first deep learning tool to receive the CMS NTAP designation and is eligible for up to $1040 of reimbursement. CMS only grants NTAP designation to promote the adoption of new technology that provides substantial clinical improvement over standard of care. This will help accelerate the innovation and adoption of deep learning technology by aligning the incentives of both software developers and clinical providers.”

In addition to LVO detection, Avicenna’s FDA-approved CINA Head triage AI solution for neurovascular emergencies also detects intracranial hemorrhages (ICHs). Using a combination of deep learning and machine learning technologies, CINA Head automatically detects and prioritizes acute ICH and LVO cases from CT-scan imaging within 20 seconds, seamlessly alerting the radiologist within their existing systems and workflow.

Avicenna.ai: NTAP information for customers

Avicenna.AI believes that there is a strong argument that the CINA Head triage solution is substantially similar to the applicant technology and that the same ICD-10-PCS code may be used to describe the use of CINA Head.
