*Currently only available with GE Healthcare system.
Critical Care Suite, powered by Edison, is a collection of AI algorithms for triage and quality control embedded on an X-ray system. The on-device artificial intelligence solution is designed to identify and help prioritize critical cases such as pneumothorax.

In addition to pneumothorax detection, the application also includes Quality Care Suite algorithms that operate in parallel and aids by automatically rotating images as well as analyzing and flagging protocol and field of view errors.
