GE launches new Edison platform with AI apps

At RSNA, new applications and smart devices make it easier for hospitals to develop algorithms and manage data for imaging and precision medicine.

At the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting in Chicago, GE Healthcare is showcasing its new Edison artificial intelligence platform, with new applications designed to help hospitals and health systems make better use of AI.


GE touts the Edison platform as a way to help hospitals derive more value from their technology. Its various clinical applications, which can be deployed on medical devices, the cloud or on the edge, are developed using validated algorithms from an ecosystem leading partners.

"Edison provides clinicians with an integrated digital platform, combining diverse data sets from across modalities, vendors, healthcare networks and life sciences settings," said GE Healthcare CEO Kieran Murphy in a statement. "Applications built on Edison will include the latest data processing technologies to enable clinicians to make faster, more informed decisions to improve patient outcomes."

Apps unveiled this week include: AIRx, a 510(k)-pending automated workflow tool for MRI brain scanning whose AI can offer automated slice prescriptions to help reduce previously redundant, manual steps; Critical Care Suite (also awaiting FDA approval) aims to help identify cases with the critical condition of pneumothorax at the point-of-care to enable prioritization of image review; CT Smart Subscription, which offers continuous access to the updates CT software, extending the life cycle of devices; automated Lesion Segmentation on LOGIQ E10 increases productivity through automation, helping eliminate the need for users to measure lesions manually and ensuring consistency for documentation and follow-ups.
