PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Guerbet LLC USA (Guerbet), the U.S. affiliate of the global specialist in contrast agents and solutions for medical imaging, will feature its digital solutions including its ongoing collaboration with IBM Watson Health in medical imaging, at the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
Watson Imaging Patient Synopsis is a radiologist-trained artificial intelligence (AI) tool that extracts relevant patient information, summarized into tailored, specific, and concise single-view reports to better inform diagnostic decisions. Guerbet will demonstrate Patient Synopsis at RSNA 2018 alongside its Digital Services offerings. Guerbet, an IBM Business Partner, and IBM are finalizing the terms by which Guerbet will become the first reseller of Patient Synopsis. This planned reseller relationship is in addition to IBM and Guerbet's ongoing efforts to co-develop and distribute innovative, clinical decision support solutions. Earlier this year, Guerbet signed a joint development agreement with IBM Watson Health to develop an AI software solution supporting liver cancer diagnostics and care which will be a great addition to Guerbet's Digital Services portfolio in the near future.
Guerbet's Contrast&Care® is also part of Guerbet's Digital Services offerings and enables radiology departments to collect, archive, examine and share injection data directly with Guerbet's injectors, advancing data transfer and accuracy in dosing to help radiologists best serve patients. Likewise, at the RSNA, Guerbet will display Imalogix™, a cloud-based performance management and dose monitoring solution already available in the USA market.
