Getz Healthcare Pty Ltd announced that they have partnered with Subtle Medical, a U.S-based healthcare technology company, to distribute the company's artificial intelligence (AI)-based software solutions for faster and safer medical imaging. Subtle's solutions could provide significant efficiency gains for hospitals and private radiology clinics within Australia and New Zealand, resulting in more timely patient access to critical PET and MRI imaging services.
Subtle Medical's software solution, SubtlePET™, uses proprietary deep learning algorithms to denoise low count PET images from up to 75% lower radiotracer dose and faster scan times. SubtleMR™ uses increased sharpness and denoising to improve the image quality on up to 60% faster MRI exams. The solutions result in a broad range of benefits including faster scan times, lower radiation dose, improved image quality, higher scanner efficiency, and positive impacts on workflow and patient experience. Subtle's solutions are compatible across all PET and MRI scanner brands, makes, and models, and seamlessly integrate into existing workflows.
"We are thrilled to be expanding patient access to our AI solutions. Our goal is to not only make medical imaging safer and more focused on the patient, but also help imaging institutions and radiologists achieve higher quality imaging while running a more efficient operation. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with Getz," said Josh Gurewitz, Chief Commercial Officer at Subtle Medical.
James Simkins, CEO, Getz Healthcare, added, "We are really excited to be partnering with Subtle Medical. We believe Subtle Medical's software solution will bring tangible benefits to our customers and ultimately patients." "The possibility for Subtle Medical's software solutions to improve efficiency and image quality while extending the life of existing imaging systems is a real game changer for radiologists and patients in need of access to imaging. We are delighted to introduce this technology to Australia and New Zealand," said Kimberly Hill, Managing Director of Getz Healthcare Australia & New Zealand.
