The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic vastly altered the way of doing business for most industries, radiology included. Some facilities opted to keep their doors open and continued serving those in need of scanning services. Others were able to transfer some of the workload over to off-site imaging companies to help manage the inevitable deluge.
Free Webinar. Improve Patient Care and Increase Revenue with Ultrasound and Orthobiologics.
Speaker: Jason Rand, PA – Jason is an Orthopedic PA from Boston Spine & Shoulder Center
A discussion on how ultrasound and orthobiologics add value to patient care and to an orthopedic practice. Learn how ultrasound can diagnosis MSK abnormalities, provide needle guidance, be a ‘first choice’ imaging modality over MRI and fluoroscopy, aid in patient retention, and help manage chronic pain during a time when some elective surgeries are postponed.
Artificial intelligence (AI). It’s become so prevalent and capable that it’s almost as if every conversation is peppered with its potential. In the healthcare industry, AI has provided healthcare institutions and practitioners with tools that they can use to reduce pressure on their workloads and redefine their workflows.
20/20 Imaging introduces digital penning analysis tool for quantifiable evaluation of cervical spine range of motion
20/20 Imaging, a division of Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc., has introduced a digital tool to streamline Penning Analysis, a method to document a patient's range of motion. Penning Analysis is considered to be the most widely accepted and utilized method for determining flexion/extension motion in a patient's cervical spine.
Since the 1950s when the term artificial intelligence was coined, its application and use has increased through rapid technological advances and has found their way into the health care sector, including orthopedics.
With technology changing the face of the healthcare industry, providers are showing unprecedented interest in possibilities like teleradiology to transform the way of delivering healthcare services. Today, healthcare providers across the globe are desperate for solutions that would enable them to offer better service to patients while making the process a delightful one for their employees.
COVID-19 threw a gargantuan curveball at medtech, but these industry predictions for 2020 have been surprisingly on point, so far. See what we got right and what we didn't.
The National Institutes of Health has launched the Medical Imaging and Data Resource Center (MIDRC), an ambitious effort that will harness the powers of artificial intelligence, and medical imaging to fight COVID-19. The multi-institutional collaboration, led by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of NIH, will create new tools that physicians can use for early detection and personalized therapies for COVID-19 patients.
Technology and the small medical practice: innovation streamlines workflows and optimizes patient care
A leading trend in cancer therapy over the past 20 years is our increasing ability to develop and deliver personalized therapy tailored to provide optimum safety and efficacy based on the unique needs of individual patients.
The CARE for COVID Program, led by KMPM company Ambry Genetics, helps employers address critical challenges surrounding COVID-19 testing, including helping determine who can return to work, who should be tested, the frequency of employee wellness checks, and test type.
