Subtle Medical, a key provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for medical imaging, and Siemens Healthineers have officially announced the integration of Subtle Medical’s SubtleMR image-enhancement software into the new reconstruction pipeline of Siemens Healthineers, Open Recon. The launch was communicated in a Subtle Medical press release.
SubtleMR offers deep learning post-processing for denoising and increased sharpness on faster magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences, enabling improved image quality, optimised workflow, and a better patient experience.
SubtleMR will be available on Siemens Magnetom Sola, Solafit, and Altea scanners with NX VA51. The software works with major contrasts, including T1, T2, T2 FLAIR, T2 (2D, 3D) and is compatible with the majority of MRI procedures. It is compatible with all downstream quantitative and diagnostic applications.
The Open Recon interface of Siemens Healthineers is designed to enable third-party image reconstruction and post-processing solutions to be directly integrated in the reconstruction pipeline. This way, no additional image export step is necessary, and the results are directly available on the scanner console. The reconstruction including post-processing with SubtleMR is now selectable in the user interface.
“We are proud to become the first AI technology company Siemens Healthineers has entrusted with their innovative new Open Recon interface,” said Ajit Shankaranarayanan, Chief Product Officer at Subtle Medical. “This milestone marks how powerful collaborations are between AI innovators and scanner manufacturers in order to provide the most robust imaging solutions to providers and the best care possible to patients worldwide.”
Subtle Medical’s suite of clinically validated AI-powered software solutions, SubtleMR and SubtlePET, increase the efficiency of image capture by improving the quality of both accelerated and low-dose imaging. Subtle’s solutions are compatible with all scanner models and field strengths.
