Samsung pushes to leverage AI for RSNA 2021

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics announced on Nov. 29 that it would show off advanced technologies at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2021 meeting from Nov. 28 to Dec. 2.

Included in the technologies are premium diagnostic imaging solutions in ultrasound, digital radiography, and mobile computed tomography, according to Samsung.

“This has been a momentous year for Samsung. We have worked to advance our solutions by leveraging high computing power and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies,” said David Legg, vice president at Digital Radiography and Ultrasound, NeuroLogica.

“We will be deploying AI features in each of our products to provide benefits to healthcare professionals and patients alike.”

At the five-day event, Samsung plans to demonstrate its new V8, which is a high-end ultrasound system that provides enhanced image quality and convenience for ultrasound professionals.

With regard to digital radiography, it strives to showcase its digital mobile X-ray, dubbed the AccE GM85.

“It delivers unparalleled performance and gives users better diagnostic confidence while improving workflow,” a Samsung official said.

When it comes to computed tomography, the Seoul-based company is scheduled to feature the MoniTom Elite, a mobile computed tomography scanner that delivers high-quality non-contrast CT.

“The advancements of the scanner help to optimize diagnostic confidence, speed, and workflows across departments, such as neurosurgery, pediatric imaging, critical care, diagnostic radiology, and more,” the Samsung official said.

Samsung Electronics is the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones, memory chips, and flat-panel displays.
