RapidAI announced that it received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Rapid RV/LV tool for detecting pulmonary embolism (PE) severity.
San Mateo, California-based RapidAI designed Rapid RV/LV to quickly assess the ratio between right ventricle and left ventricle. This RV/LV metric represents a key indicator of PE severity. Automating the process enables the care team to more quickly prioritize patients and accelerate decision-making.
Rapid RV/LV uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze computerized tomography pulmonary angiograms (CTPAs). It automatically calculates the RV/LV ratio within minutes. The system comprises part of the Rapid PE triage and notification product. With combined results, PE teams can make faster care decisions and communicate for truly coordinated care.
The platform offers quick identification of patients with possible right heart strain and reduces time to diagnosis. RapidAI said in a news release it reduces variability and standard…
