Bay Labs Announces New Guidance Software Data at the American Society of Echocardiography 2019 Scientific Sessions
Results to Be Presented Highlight Deep-Learning Software Utility in Acquisition of Diagnostic-Quality Echocardiograms by Novice Scanners
Bay Labs, a medical technology company at the forefront of applying artificial intelligence (AI) to cardiovascular imaging, announced that new data on the company’s first-of-its-kind deep learning investigational guidance software will be presented at the upcoming American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 30th Annual Scientific Sessions, June 21-25, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.
Echocardiography is the most widely used cardiac imaging modality but access to echo in point-of-care settings is often limited because it requires specialized skills to perform. Bay Labs has developed unique guidance software which uses artificial intelligence to aid in the acquisition of echocardiograms. The Bay Labs technology is designed to provide both non-specialist and specialist health care providers with real-time guidance to obtain ten standard echocardiographic views and designed to be integrated into an ultrasound machine. First-time data will be presented which compares the diagnostic quality of echocardiograms obtained by registered nurses (RNs) with limited training using Bay Labs technology, to the images obtained by a trained cardiac sonographer. Bay Labs guidance software is for investigational use only and not for sale.
“Evaluation of a Deep-Learning Model Designed to Aid Novice Scanners in Obtaining Diagnostic Quality Echocardiograms”will be presented by Dr. Akhil Narang of Northwestern Memorial Hospital during the Advancing the Echo Field: From Abstracts to JASE Session on Sunday, June 23, from 1:15 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. PT.’
