AI-Rad Companion Prostate MR for Biopsy Support, on the other hand, segments the shape of the prostate on MRIs and helps radiologists to spot and outline lesions so that urologists are clear on where to perform biopsies. This is important, as urologists are often faced with written notes and pictograms coming from radiologists that guide them to where to perform a biopsy. Regarding fusion procedures, manual segmentation is no longer necessary, saving valuable time that is normally spent on monotonous manual work.
The technology is currently being shown off at the ongoing RSNA conference in Chicago.
