Seeing and measuring hepatobiliary disease using artificial intelligence, presented by Perspectum at RSNA 2019

  • November 14, 2019

Oxford, 14 Nov 2019. Perspectum will be showcasing the application of Artificial Intelligence in their FDA-cleared, quantitative imaging services — LiverMultiScan for liver tissue characterization and MRCP+ for biliary tree visualization — at RSNA’s annual meeting this year.

Perspectum’s co-founder, Professor Sir Michael Brady, will show how machine learning can be integrated with LiverMultiScan and MRCP+ to enhance disease detection with improved precision, and potentially monitor disease progression. A total of four abstracts highlighting the utility of Perspectum’s technology will be presented at RSNA.

Details of the presentations are listed below:

Quantitative biliary tree imaging with MRCP+ reveals differences between AIH and PSC patients (images above). PSC patients show a significant increase in biliary tree strictures and dilatations between baseline and 1-year follow up, which is not observed in AIH patients.

"Monitoring progression of this unpredictable disease remains a major challenge for clinicians managing PSC patients. By objectively quantifying changes in the bile ducts, MRCP+ yields additional information to conventional MRCP. PSC Support is encouraged by this technology and we hope that it can help to reduce uncertainty for patients." – Martine Walmsley, PSC Support
