Watson Automated Malignancy Detection

Powerful. Accurate. Fast malignant lesion detection.

Overview

Watson Elementary® is an exceptionally practical and fast computer-assisted diagnostic tool (CAD system) that offers radiologists automated and reproducible support during the multiparametric analysis of MR images with the aim of identifying and localising potentially malignant lesions within the prostate gland.

Powered by MAI® Technology

MAI technology gives you 3 crucial clinical benefits over other CAD systems.

The unique MAI algorithm in Watson Elementary is based on a per voxel correlation with malignancy. This is fundamentally different from other algorithms, which rely on a non-reproducible and operator-dependent definition of the ROI.

Directly Identify Hot & Cold Spots

As a result of this singular feature, the MAI technology in Watson Elementary helps you to quickly assess the structural heterogeneity of the lesion (e.g. hot and cold spots) and thus help to exactly pinpoint your biopsy target.

 

 

 

 

Save Time & Increase Accuracy

Watson Elementary exports delineated ROIS and biopsy targets directly to stereotactic image-guided biopsy systems. This option markedly increases accuracy by preventing ambiguities and human errors. Moreover, it saves valuable biopsy procedure time.

Crucial Benefits

Highlights potential malignancy

Automatically generates malignancy attention maps and shows all parameters in colour overlays.

Multiple analyses options

Hugely facilitates analyses of various multiparametric MR images.

Multiple analyses = greater accuracy

Helps to identify potential malignancies by automatically combining all available information.

Reduced analysis time

Exceptionally fast co-registration and fully automated analysis. Real-time access to the end result as well as all underlying data.

Information at your fingertips

DICOM structured reporting and full connectivity to PACS.

Better targeting

Biopsy target generation with direct export to image-guided biopsy systems.

Eliminate errors

No operator dependence and intra-observer variability.

Synchronised analyses

Automatically co-registers multiple MRI series.

Access Beyond Today

DICOM Structured Reporting allows for easy post-processing of data, data mining as well as data redeployment for active surveillance, targeted image-guided biopsies and therapy purposes.
