Israel-based DiA Imaging Analysis announces that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA for the commercial use of LVivo Seamless for automatic view selection. LVivo Seamless algorithms automatically run “behind the scenes” to select the optimal cardiac ultrasound views out of 40-60 views in standard echocardiogram exams.
Finding the right views in each echo exam is cumbersome and time-consuming, DiA officials say. That’s why the ability to auto-select views is a breakthrough in AI implementation and the value that it brings to the echocardiography workflow, they add.
“LVivo software operates without human touch, and adds great value,” says Steve Feinstein, MD, professor of cardiology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. “These rapid, reliable and accurate serial views selections and measurements enable us to get second opinions and access anytime and anywhere.”
The cleared LVivo Seamless solution integrates with DiA’s other LVivo cardiac auto analysis toolbox products such as LVivo EF, an automated calculation of ejection fraction (EF) calculation, which is a main indicator of global heart function. This enables clinicians to automatically obtain, for each echo-lab cardiac exam, optimal views and automated measurements in a fast and accurate way.
All of DiA’s ultrasound AI solutions are cross-platform and vendor-neutral; therefore, they can run on images acquired from any ultrasound device and can easily operate with any radiology image viewer.
“LVivo Seamless joins DiA’s existing other solutions, to help reducing the variability associated with manually selecting views and visually analyzing cardiac ultrasound images,” said Hila Goldman-Aslan, DiA’s CEO and co-founder.
