Milan’s university hospital uses Qure’s solution


Back, a pioneer in artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for radiology, is set to collaborate with Italy's San Raffaele university hospital to enhance COVID-19 patient monitoring using its automated chest X-ray solution, qXR. This solution interprets lung scans within seconds, determining the extent of lung damage due to the virus.
The groundbreaking AI technology eases the workload of overstretched clinicians, offering a consistent and efficient method to monitor disease progression. qXR's capabilities extend beyond COVID-19 detection, identifying conditions such as tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, lung malignancies, and medical emergencies.
"Through our AI solution, we offer an objective approach to monitoring COVID-19 disease progression and response to various treatments," said Prashant Warier, CEO and Co-Founder of He further underscored the value of their algorithm in managing the pandemic by easing the healthcare staff's workload and facilitating new therapeutic discoveries.
As one of the hardest-hit nations by the pandemic, Italy stands to benefit significantly from this AI intervention, offering much-needed relief to its strained healthcare infrastructure.
