A study of artificial intelligence (AI) diagnosis tools for X-ray imaging found the technology delivered faster results and reduced the likelihood of missed fractures.

The new research was presented at the 2023 Radiological Society of North America’s Radiology Conference and Annual Meeting by SimonMed Imaging, one of the largest U.S. outpatient medical imaging providers and radiology practices.

Scottsdale, Arizona–based SimonMed said it conducted a retrospective study of data from its nationwide outpatient imaging centers, finding that AI automation technology delivered results 82% faster than readings without the technology.
