Clinical Implementation


Value Proposition

Buckle or torus fractures are common pediatric injuries that can be subtle and challenging to detect. The appropriate identification of these fractures is important for the appropriate treatment. AI can augment the ability to detect these fractures.

Narrative(s)

A 40 year old with distal forearm pain after getting injured in a car accident. 

Workflow Description

Images obtained from the radiography unit are sent to PACS and the AI engine. The images are analyzed by AI.  Coordinates of areas of interest are highlighted. The radiologist confirms the finding and reports the finding.
