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 5 year old boy with distal forearm pain after fall on outstretched hand from monkey bars at the playground.

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 findings. False positives and negatives are recorded for continued training.
