Business use case
AIMinded is an Artificial Intelligence solution that accelerates cancer treatment by automating image analysis in radiotherapy clinics.
Business Mission / Concept
There are 5 000 cancer patients who need radiotherapy every day in the world. The number of cancer patients is continuously increasing while today's number of radiation oncologists is limited for the amount of work.
A radiation oncologist has to run multiple tasks:
1. Contouring process;
2. Linear accelerator irradiation process;
3. Patients’ care.
A cancer patient:
1. Can wait up to 4 weeks for receiving radiotherapy treatment;
2. Could not start the treatment in due time;
3. It could have a delayed treatment process due to the long contouring time.
Streamlining this long process gives time for curing multiple patients, while automation of contouring could also mean the same doctor treats more patients. In conclusion, we can bring more life chances for more patients.
AIMinded’s mission is to accelerate cancer treatment with the power of Artificial Intelligence, in order to help cancer patients start the treatment faster and to have a strong connection with the doctor.
The AIMinded product is named AIM-Contouring. This is a fully automated system that is integrated into radiotherapy clinics and compatible with all vendors of medical equipment and software that interacts with our application.
The radiotherapy process has multiple steps.
•The patient takes a CT scan and the images are sent to the doctors in order to plan the treatment.
•The doctor begins contouring both tumors and organs at risk (near the tumor) that should be protected.
Here is the part where AIMinded brings value. With only one click, the images of CT scans are sent to our platform and using Artificial Intelligence, we create those mandatory contours in 2 minutes instead of 3-4 hours.
•After the contours are generated, they are automatically sent to the doctor for validation’s visualization application.
•The doctor validates the contours and can do small changes if needed before the patient can be sent to the physics department, where the radiation dosages are planned.
