Vertebral compression fractures are predominantly triggered by minimal or low energy trauma and are often caused by osteoporosis. Currently, roughly 200 million people worldwide suffer from osteoporosis, with a higher prevalence in women (1 in 3) than in men (1 in 5) and increases with age.
A vertebral fracture has been shown to increase the risk of a major osteoporotic fracture by 72% compared to study subjects without vertebral fractures at baseline, and this increased fracture risk was most pronounced for the risk of a future hip fracture. Osteoporosis is a major concern in Europe as it results in 4.3 million fragility fractures and health care costs in excess of €56 billion annually.
Only 26% of vertebral fractures were correctly and accurately reported as an incidental finding.
IB Lab FLAMINGO provides accurate detection and labeling of vertebral fractures on a variety of CT imaging indications. The software provides prompt detection of vertebral fractures as secondary radiological findings. Furthermore, IB Lab FLAMINGO enables standardized detection of vertebral fractures as secondary radiological findings.
..when the imaging is performed for another indication (opportunistic vertebral fracture assessment, incidental findings)
to describe the presence of vertebral fractures
can be beneficial for radiology reporting
Accuracy in detecting patients with at least one vertebral fracture
Specificity - ensuring a very low risk of false positives
Sensitivity in detecting patients with at least one vertebral fracture
IB Lab FLAMINGO serves as our AI solution designed to assist in the assessment of vertebral fractures within CT scans, which are obtained for diverse clinical purposes and encompass segments of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine. This tool aims to enhance the process of diagnosing patients with vertebral fractures for further treatment decisions.
Accurate detection of vertebral fractures on a variety of CT imaging indications
Prompt detection of vertebral fractures as secondary findings
repeatedly precise in every measurement
IB Lab FLAMINGO is a fully-automated radiological image processing software device intended to aid users in the detection of vertebral fractures on computer tomography (CT) scans by providing:
It should not be used in-lieu of full patient evaluation or solely relied upon to make or confirm a diagnosis. The intended user of IB Lab FLAMINGO is a healthcare professional trained in radiology (including but not limited to radiologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist, traumatologist, orthopedist).
The usage of IB Lab FLAMINGO is limited to use in adults aged 50 years and older.
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.
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.
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.
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.
