Ezra—a NY-based startup for early cancer screening using full body MRI scans—launched an AI-driven solution that is designed to quickly assist medical professionals to translate the complex findings of a radiology report into simplified and universally understood terms for patients.
The proprietary technology pinpoints specific findings in a radiology report, maps them to non-technical, easily understood translations and transports these results to be subsequently reviewed and verified by medical professionals, the company says.
The announcement of the new Ezra Reporter solution comes on the heels of the company launching its full body MRI screening service in four cities across 16 imaging facilities, and is looking to expand nationwide in 2022.
Physicians who have focused on longevity and anti-aging have integrated Ezra full-body scans into their service offerings to their patients.
“The Ezra Report provides a great synopsis for my patients to easily digest their scan results, fostering an easier conversation around their treatment plan,” says Jake Deutsch, MD, a celebrity doctor in New York, who recently began offering Ezra Scans to his Oakwood patients. “The quick turnaround time, coupled with the simplicity of the report, helps my patients to feel proactive about their long-term health goals at Oakwood.”
This machine learning solution uses over one thousand data points of clinical data from Ezra’s existing internal medical provider team to suggest translations for the radiology report findings. The output is a non-technical and intuitive medical report of a patient’s radiology results from an Ezra full body MRI scan.
“Ezra Reporter is helping our members better understand their clinical results, empowering them to make direct and pertinent decisions about their health,” says Diego Cantor, PhD, co-founder and CTO of Ezra. “Furthermore, this AI helps us reduce internal costs making our full body cancer screening service more affordable for our members.”
Ezra aims to implement artificial intelligence into all aspects of its screening service, providing accessible and democratized care to all of its members. The use of technology in radiology mitigates countless unnecessary follow-up appointments, long wait times, and unnecessary stress. Through this marquee development in Ezra’s technology, the company aims to help its members save on costs and time, and streamline future care.
