HARTFORD, Conn, February 28, 2024—Jefferson Radiology, a leading radiology practice in Connecticut, is revolutionizing the prioritization and diagnosis of urgent CT Scan cases with Aidoc, a cutting-edge AI software. This innovative technology uses advanced AI algorithms to help radiologists diagnose and prioritize CT Scan cases, ensuring that patients with the most urgent needs receive prompt attention. Aidoc has been implemented in elite centers worldwide, and Jefferson Radiology now integrates this technology across its outpatient centers and hospital partnerships to enhance sub-specialized care and improve healthcare outcomes.

Aidoc’s advanced AI algorithms seamlessly operate in the background, alerting radiologists when urgent findings are detected, expediting reporting, and saving valuable time. This ensures prompt notice of critical findings, accelerating care for patients with life-threatening conditions and potentially averting adverse outcomes. By equipping its already highly sub-specialized radiologists with this new and powerful AI tool, the practice is elevating patient care for emergent findings.

Dr. Ryan Kaliney of Jefferson Radiology notes, “Our radiologists are well-versed in interpreting AI-assisted findings critically. They consider AI suggestions as part of the overall diagnostic process, relying on their expertise to make the final decision. The combination of AI and human intelligence ensures accurate and comprehensive diagnoses.”

Aidoc’s algorithms cover critical conditions such as intracranial hemorrhage, pulmonary embolism (PE), cervical spine fracture, and rib fracture, significantly enhancing disease awareness and prompting swift attention to life-threatening or urgent conditions. The enhanced AI detection algorithms demonstrate remarkable strides in accuracy, including:

    • Enhanced detection of subtle critical findings by up to 36%.1
    • 2% sensitivity, 93.3% specificity, and 96.2% negative predictive value for ICH detection as part of a real-world validation.
    • A notable 44% increase in treatment opportunities through incidental PE detection.3

With this implementation, Jefferson Radiology is furthering its mission to combine clinical excellence with AI innovation, advancing toward more precise diagnostics, timely care, and optimized patient outcomes.
