Problems

Studies showed that adult patients with occurring hip and groin pain may see more than three healthcare providers and have symptoms for years before a correct diagnosis is given.

Low comparability

Time-consuming

Non-standardized

Solutions

Detecting causes of hip pain at an early stage and performing hip-preserving surgeries can reduce patient discomfort and healthcare costs to a substantial extent. IB Lab HIPPO™ is here to support you!

Product description

IB Lab HIPPO uses deep learning technology for automated and precise measurement of hip angles such as Corpus-Collum-Diaphysis angle (CCD)—also known as Neck-Shaft angle,—and the Lateral Center-Edge Angle (LCE). On bilateral standing AP hip radiographs, the application supports the medical expert in the detection of the presence or absence of pelvic obliquity. Readings are precise, and reading and reporting time can be reduced from 2 minutes to 23 seconds per image when using IB Lab HIPPO.

IB Lab HIPPO highlights relevant clinical findings by applying the latest international medical standards to enable timely and accurate decision making. The findings are summarized in a visual output report, attached to the original x-ray image and saved automatically in the PACS system. The AI-results are fed as text into the predefined RIS-template for accelerated reporting. IB Lab HIPPO eases disease progression monitoring by facilitating comparison of radiographic disease parameters over time.

34 different radiological findings, measurements, and results include*:

  • LCE angle
  • CCD angle
  • Pelvic obliquity
  • Tönnis angle

  • Hip Osteoarthritis
  • Hip Fractures
  • Implant support (Quality assurance of implant positioning)
  • Detection of hip malpositioning
  • Pediatric support

*available as cleared/research versions

Intended use

IB Lab HIPPO is a radiological fully-automated image processing software device of either computed (CR) or directly digital (DX) images of the pelvis or hip.

The system is to be used by trained medical professionals including, but not limited to, orthopedists and radiologists. It should not be used in-lieu of full patient evaluation or solely relied upon to make or confirm a diagnosis.

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
Orthopedist

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
Orthopedist

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.
