MedaPhor to pilot ultrasound AI software

MedaPhor LogoAIM-listed MedaPhor Group plc has announced that the Fetal Medicine Department of St George's University Hospitals NHS Trust in London will pilot ScanNav, its AI-driven ultrasound image analysis software.

MedaPhor, a Cardiff University spinout, completed the £3.6m acquisition of Intelligent Ultrasound Ltd (IUL), a University of Oxford spin-out, in October 2017. IUL was founded by Professor Alison Noble, and had developed deep learning based ultrasound image analysis software called ScanNav.

A trading update from MedaPhor last month said that the integration of IUL had progressed well and that ScanNav had entered limited first release at a major UK hospital; today's announcement confirms the identity of the Trust involved in the pilot.

ScanNav is initially targeted at the UK's 20-week screening programme where it will be used to carry out automated, real-time "peer review" of obstetric ultrasound images as the patient is scanned. It evaluates over 50 individual criteria to confirm that the images conform to protocol. ScanNav has learnt these protocols from over 350,000 images that were assessed by a panel of sonographers.

The news follows confirmation that MedaPhor has secured a £466k grant from Innovate UK's Digital Health Technology Catalyst competition to develop its NeedleGuide product. The augmented reality ultrasound-guided needling system  will combine technology developed by MedaPhor and expertise from IUL.

As discussed in UK Public Sector SITS Market Trends & Forecasts, NHS budgets remain under tremendous pressure and the future of the service can only be sustained through digitally-enabled transformation. We expect interest in the use of machine intelligence in healthcare to build over 2018 and we will be taking an in-depth look at the subject later this year.
