In this article, SmartTRAK reviews the development of AI in healthcare and profiles four companies implementing AI-driven imaging in these spaces.
The US Orthopedic Computer-Assisted Surgery (CAS) Market is one of the fastest-growing markets in orthopedics and is expected to reach revenues of $1.14B by 2025, according to SmartTRAK estimates. The Orthopedic CAS market includes a range of enabling technologies including robotic platforms, navigation systems, surgical planning tools, augmented/virtual reality technology and artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being increasingly incorporated into diagnostics and planning to assist in optimization of surgical decision making and anomaly detection.
The prominence of AI and machine learning technologies in medicine has snowballed over the past decade. Diagnostic Imaging and navigation is experiencing a new paradigm of technology through the emergence of AI-driven 3D reconstruction, segmentation and navigation applications. Two areas seeing quick implementation and adoption of these new systems are orthopedic planning/navigation and neurovascular diagnostics. In this article, SmartTRAK reviews the development of AI in healthcare and profiles four companies implementing AI-driven imaging in these spaces.
Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare
The healthcare industry is no stranger to the promotion and adoption of new technology. AI and machine learning caught the eyes of the medical profession in the ’80s, as evidenced by the establishment of the international journal, AI in Medicine, and have been used in some capacity by facilities such as the Mayo Clinic since the 1990s. But in the last decade, there has been a surge of AI and machine learning developments in healthcare fueled by the introduction and performance capabilities of deep learning and deep neural networks.
Traditional imaging companies typically focus on hardware and systems rather than on software. Therefore, the speed at which they roll out products is tied to the pace of new hardware development. Flipping the script, AI imaging software companies are much more nimble than their predecessors. Many of these software companies are not focused on one application but are targeting expansion into other markets through ...
