Teleglobal Consulting receives CE mark for its AI solution
The UK’s first CE marked AI software that can detect up to thirteen different chest abnormalities, by reading x-rays
SWINDON, UK, June 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Teleglobal Consulting LTD, UK, has been awarded Class 2A CE Mark for its AI-based Chest Anomaly Detection Software. Teleglobal is now joining the league of very few companies in the UK to obtain CE mark for the AI solution in medical imaging. The company manufactures AI products under the brand “iDoc.ai”.
iDoc-X can accurately detect thirteen different anomalies, including COVID-19. The other classes of diseases are: pneumothorax, pneumonia, tuberculosis, scars, opacities, nodule, cavity, cardiomegaly, union, fibrosis, blunt PC and pleural effusion. The software integrates seamlessly with the radiology workflow, detects X-ray abnormalities and provides “AI suggestions” in the clinician’s worklist. Radiologists can prioritize the worklist based on suggested abnormalities.
The software is intended to improve the quality and speed of radiologic diagnostics and reduce operational costs associated with radiology outsourcing and second opinion. In addition, the software allows radiology facilities to use a “one-stop-shop” for the most common chest abnormalities.
Since early 2018, iDoc.ai has been gradually working with healthcare partners in India and Southeast Asia for pilot deployments of iDoc-X. The recent ISO 13485 certification and CE mark allow the company to operate commercially throughout the EU under the European Union’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and many other countries around the world.
“CE marking is a very encouraging step for us, endorsing our vision of responsible AI and reflecting our passion for quality and patient safety. Our focus on regulatory affairs will soon continue with the USFDA and UKCA ” said Rahul Tarar, MD, iDoc.ai.
The company’s management team believes that, “Globally, research into AI-based chest x-ray analyzers has advanced well in recent years. However, according to the University of Toronto, The Vector Institute and MIT, most of the AI solutions available in the international market are currently biased based on gender, age, race, or socioeconomic status. Research shows that most algorithms are less certain of working well for racial groups in under-represented countries. Results are often skewed in favor of specific countries and socio-economic backgrounds where data for training is collected from. “
Going forward, the company aims to invest more in eliminating or completely mitigating “bias,” improving accuracy and creating the world’s first unbiased AI solution for medical imaging.
“We fully understand the importance of solutions – reliability and accuracy, and of our marketing efforts for business success. Therefore, we are actively seeking funding opportunities for further investment in R&D and to accelerate time to market. “, added Rahul Tarar. .
