Increasing transparency in AI for radiology

AI for Radiology increases transparency in the commercial artificial intelligence software available for radiology. The supply of commercial software products has rapidly increased. For the potential customers, it might not always be clear what is out there, with what regulatory clearance, and at what maturity level. Therefore, we want to increase transparency in the available AI software for radiology in Europe and aid the selection and implementation of such software.

The most comprehensive overview

We provide an overview of available AI based software for clinical radiology practice. The focus is on the European market, therefore CE certification is a requirement for software to be on the main product page. Vendors are asked to provide information about their products ensuring high quality information. If not provided, the company and product profile will be more limited and consisting of public information (from e.g. websites, news articles, etc.). Currently, we are the most comprehensive overview out there.

We are independent

The data aggregation and maintenance of this website is performed by the Diagnostic Image Analysis Group (DIAG) from the Radboud university medical center in the Netherlands. DIAG is a research group and we have no commercial interest in this project. We do not receive any funding from the listed vendors.

Information on majority of the products has been provided by the vendors themselves. They update information when necessary or we propose changes based on press releases. If the vendors did not verify and complement the information, the product specifications are based on public sources (vendor website, press releases). On the Products page the Information source for each product is listed as Vendor or Public.

Software that may impact patient outcome is considered a medical device and needs to conform to certain safety standards. The CE mark in Europe and FDA clearance in the United States indicate conformity to those standards and allows for selling and clinical use of the product in that region. We verify the FDA clearances using the FDA database and request the CE certificate or Declaration of Conformity to verify CE certification. If Certification verified is answered No, we were not able to retrieve all documents.

The general order on the Products page is alphabetically based on the product names. Products with MDR certification are listed first, followed by products for which the information was provided by the vendor (Information source: Vendor) and certification was verified (Certification verified: Yes).

No, companies do not pay to be listed in this overview of artificial intelligence software in radiology. We aim to increase transparency in the field and be as comprehensive as possible. This also means companies cannot pay to be prioritized in the listing order.

The platform is currently funded as part of a research project by Radboud university medical center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

We try to keep the information up to date as much as possible. For this we largely depend on the vendors passing us the latest changes. Also, we keep track of news, social media and press releases. Do you notice something that should be updated? Or products that are missing? Please, let us know by sending an email to kicky.vanleeuwen@radboudumc.nl. Want to receive a monthly summary of the changes? Please, subscribe to our newsletter here.

Would you like to receive the latest developments in the field, a summary of the changes on the listings, and some of the key publications in AI for Radiology? Please, subscribe to our newsletter here.

We do not provide the database in Excel or csv format. Due to the limited resources to keep the platform maintained, we are not able to follow up on these requests.

We are not a marketplace or reseller. Please, click on the vendor name or logo to be redirected to the company page. Here, you can find the vendor's contact details to discuss a purchase.
