New deep learning CT scan processing software is now available through Radailogy that can help everyone overcome the limitations of Iterative Reconstruction. PixelShine from AlgoMedica automatically improves the quality of any CT scan by reducing image noise without reducing the conspicuity of fine details. It improves the image quality of CT studies acquired at any dose level, to make lower dose scanning possible for all CT studies. In addition, PixelShine is vendor neutral; so it works with all CT scanners, regardless of the vendor, including older and refurbished systems.
Doctors from all over the world have recently been able to upload X-ray examinations or other medical documents to www.radailogy.com and have them examined with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Either as an initial finding or as a second opinion to confirm or expand their own diagnosis. “What we are doing with Radailogy is a world first,” explains Gerd Schueller, founder of the Zug-based company Emergency Radiology Schueller, which launched the platform in October (see article Wirtschaft/Zuger Zeitung 29.12.2020).
Not only trauma centers and radiological institutes, but every doctor has to do with diagnosing fractures. X-rays are still the first line modality, especially in the case of trauma to the peripheral skeleton. Radailogy offers you a new, CE-approved app from AZmed in France: Rayvolve. Either let Rayvolve always process your X-ray images in the background, or you can send us selected images with a specific question. Rayvolve was trained on records from a million trauma images. AZmed shows Rayvolve a sensitivity of 96% and a specificity of 86%. In our own test series Rayvolve performed as follows: Sensitivity 93%, Specificity 86%, PPW 92%, NPW 89%, Accuracy 91%. In a multicenter study, Rayvolve achieved a time saving of 36% and an increase in specificity of 8%.
Rayvolve proves to be a valuable help for doctors in daily practice: be it that the app is used occasionally, for example in doctor’s offices, or that it is used to optimize the workflow in medical centers.
Rayvolve is best to request using our Radailogy services Defained or Pure AI. Register, upload and let’s go!
Around the clock, every day of the year, medical examinations are uploaded to www.radailogy.com, which are processed by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) application in addition to the specialist assessment at the request of the referring physician. It is a world first: with its large team of Radailogists, who are specialists specially trained in AI, Radailogy offers its service online 24/7 as a combination of medical expertise and the latest AI technology.
ZUG – In thousands of our Swiss medical practices, around ten million X-ray examinations are performed and diagnosed every year. Precisely because X-ray diagnostics is of considerable importance in patient treatment, the question is raised as to whether diagnostic assistance can be offered through the specialist opinion transmitted by teleradiology and the use of artificial intelligence.
The most diverse AIs can be found and selected by means of simple queries, depending on the type of examination to be found. The simplest way to compare the process is with shopping in an app store: Doctors can compile the appropriate offer individually on the platform. The characteristics and the technical and medical-legal requirements for the use of each AI are presented and a hyperlink to the official websites of the AI manufacturers is also displayed for further information.
The choice of service is always displayed in detail to the doctor. As soon as the order is confirmed, the upload of the examination can begin.
DICOM examinations are uploaded as a ZIP file simply by dragging and dropping.
The specialist medical findings and/or the AI results are delivered to the doctors’ personal portal by noon of the next working day. Likewise, the invoices for the service provided can be accessed.
Radailogy offers online up-to-date AI from global manufacturers for many medical specialties. The platform is highly secure, available every day of the year and easy to use. The reporting by Radailogists – specialists in AI – enables the combination of medical expertise and innovative AI technology. This is to ensure that the medicine of the future remains in human hands and at the same time all patients benefit from AI technologies that have already become reality, according to the motto: Artificial Intelligence under radailogical control.
We at Emergency Radiology Schueller take criticism seriously. According to William Deming’s formula: Plan – Do – Check – Act, the customer evaluation of our teleradiological services has a very high priority. Read the results for 2020 here!
Nothing is more important to us than standing together with our customers. We at Emergency Radiology Schueller are grateful to have been able to maintain an excellent relationship with our customers for years. In addition, not only the constant, uncompromising radiological service at any time of the day or night over years as well as personal support during office hours on +41 41 544 60 80 are a basic requirement, but also “the very spontaneous readiness for action and flexibility, which is enormous in everyday life and in help to cope with emergency services “, as one of our Swiss customers, the Hirslanden Klinik Stephanshorn in St. Gallen, puts it. We received further praise from a customer from the Austrian capital Vienna: “As was to be expected, the teleradiological care provided by the company operated by Prof. Schueller works very well”. In an online survey we asked our customers only two questions: 1. what grade from one to ten would you give the teleradiological service of Emergency Radiology Schueller (10=very good)? 2. if you do not give a ten, what is missing on this grade ten? We received twenty answers, we received the grade ten 15 times, grades eight and nine twice and grade seven once. That made an average of 9.4 points. On the one hand, we are very proud of this result with testimonials such as: “We are very satisfied with the service of Emergency Radiology Schueller at Zofingen Hospital, I would give the service a 10 (Chief Physician Dr. Renate Engisch) and “…I think the Emergency Radiology Schueller system has now become well established in the Döbling Private Clinic (Prim. PD Dr. med. univ. Marius Wick). Nevertheless, we are doing our utmost to ask questions and optimise the results for grades seven to nine. An Austrian customer, for example, complained that “we are still dependent on the physical import of the reports into the HIS”. We were able to improve this quickly and easily with the now desired roll-out of our HL7 interface Diagnostic Gate, which is already established with almost all customers. This saves our customers valuable administration and time, because all our findings are not only accessible at any time in the PACS, but also in the RIS/HIS – and this in acute operation within one hour after the patient examinations have been transferred to us. We received further praise from the heads of a large institute for radiology in Switzerland: “The Emergency Radiology Schueller Academic Health Division supports us with consistently high quality in the important sub-disciplines of MSC, neuro-, body-, onco-, cardiac- and prostate radiology whenever we have a case-by-case need. The company shows that teleradiology does not mean zero or one, but should and can always be used when there is a need – even at short notice. Many thanks”. We may return the thanks!

Teleradiology and Artificial Intelligence: Two major disruptive Technologies for the Medicine of the Future
The great potential of teleradiology is now recognised. Today, it has earned a reputation as a professional service that supports medical institutions in their daily tasks. And now, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next innovation in medical diagnostics.
Teleradiology already has a significant influence on the field of radiology. It contributes to significantly improving the quality of medicine through its high-quality diagnostic sub-specialisation that can be used at any desired location. Teleradiology also helps to make existing radiological workplaces in hospitals and specialist radiological institutes more attractive in the long term and even to prevent burnout: obligatory services at unloved times, such as at night, at weekends and on public holidays, are simply no longer necessary for radiologists from such institutions. And in the event of an excessively high work volume, for example during peak or off-peak times or in the event of staff shortages, we at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller – can take over and report on any number of examinations for our customers at any time in the shortest possible time and with our high quality.
But that is not all. We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller – are constantly questioning ourselves and are already thinking today about those services which will make their contribution to serve society in the best possible way in the future. Revolutionary information technology has enabled the emergence of both teleradiology and AI. The rapid development of telecommunications has helped teleradiology to celebrate its great success. The development of the DICOM standard, which enabled the storage and exchange of information in medical image data management, had a particular influence on this. For AI, the development of algorithms of neural networks in connection with the latest generation of powerful processors offers the possibility of processing large amounts of data in parallel.
