Traumatology plays an important role day and night in medical practices, medical institutes and hospitals. At the same time, it takes up a large proportion of the available working time for medical professionals. On average, only about 10% of all X-rays actually show fractures.
It is with great pleasure that we present Rayvolve, an AI assistant for fracture detection on X-ray images.
Why Rayvolve matters and how it works
Rayvolve supports rapid and reliable fracture diagnosis on X-ray images of the axial and peripheral skeleton.
Fracture findings are visualized in clear images. The manufacturer speaks of a time saving for radiologists of almost 30% and a significant improvement in diagnostic accuracy with a reduction in false negative results of more than 60%.
Any medical professional can use Rayvolve for each and every trauma patient. In medical institutions, this AI assistant can also do its work automatically in the background. As a result, fractures are detected immediately after the X-rays are taken, even before the radiologist has seen the studies themselves. These patients can be prioritized, diagnosed and treated accordingly.
Patients, clinicians and radiologists with a more detailed and accurate diagnosis and the reduced likelihood of missed therapy.
