Assessment and classification of vertebral fractures

Get DemoComing soon


Vertebral fractures are common in osteoporosis but often go undetected and untreated, increasing the risk of future fractures. Only one-third of these fractures are identified clinically, resulting in missed opportunities for intervention and significant burden on patients, the economy, and healthcare. Preventing subsequent fractures after an initial event should be a top priority to avoid these consequences.

Only 3 out of 10 vertebral fractures are detected

Significant cost driver

8-fold increase in age-adjusted mortality


The AI software opportunistically screens CT scans of the spine to detect otherwise possibly overseen vertebral fractures. It performs classification based on the Genant score and highlights clinically relevant vertebral fractures. IB Lab FLAMINGO™ is here to help!

Product description

IB Lab FLAMINGO is a fully automated AI supported software solution for the opportunistic detection of vertebral fracture on CT scans of the spine. IB Lab FLAMINGO ensures that the clinically most relevant vertebral fractures are brought to the attention of bone health specialists. The goal is to identify existing, unrecognized vertebral fractures and bring them to clinical attention to ensure appropriate treatment.


  • Vertebrae Labeling
  • Fracture Location
  • Fracture Severity


  • Detection of VF in CT scans
  • Independence of CT scanner type
  • Opportunistic screening for VF
  • Detect VF in relevant parts of the spine
  • Notification for triaging of patients to care pathways (e.g. FLS site)
  • Patient facing information on VF findings
  • The high specificity of VF detection

Intended use

IB Lab FLAMINGO is a fully-automated radiological image processing software designed to aid medical professionals, including orthopedists and radiologists, in detecting vertebral fractures of the spine from computed tomography (CT) images. This system is intended to be used as an aid and should not replace a full patient evaluation, nor should it be solely relied upon to make or confirm a diagnosis.

What our customers say:

Jack Farr - Orthopedist

ImageBiopsy AI software is highly accurate and efficient within our PACS system, which provides valuable information on the status of the knee along the continuum of chondrosis to arthrosis.

Jack Farr, MD

The integration of the AI ​​solutions by ImageBiopsy Lab into our RIS and PACS is easy and well done. It is fun to work with and the clarity of the visualized report is an ideal support for our patient consultation.

Jochen Mueller-Stromberg, MD

AI-based solutions reduce the amount of work and the findings become more accurate. An objective value is given which can be used both for monitoring and forecasting the progress. We offer something that others don’t have.

Michael Gruber, MD

Exact diagnosis and reproducible follow-up exams are indispensable for a successful osteoarthritis therapy. Software-based methods can assist the physician in the therapy management and adjustment process.
