Siemens Healthineers AI-Rad Companion Organs RT

Siemens Healthineers AI-Rad Companion Organs RT

AI-Rad Companion Organs RT, the latest Siemens Healthineers artificial intelligence-based software assistant in the AI-Rad Companion family, uses deep-learning AI algorithms to automatically contour organs at risk (OARs) on computed tomography (CT) images as part of the radiation therapy planning workflow. These algorithms automate the organ contouring process for various body regions, including the head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvic regions, to accelerate contouring. AI-Rad Companion Organs RT also supports the use of organ template configurations that can be aligned with institutional protocols, which may save time and improve standardization in clinical workflows. AI-Rad Companion Organs RT is available on the company’s teamplay cloud-based digital health platform.[1]
