Arterys, a pioneer in four-dimensional (4D), cloud-based medical imaging, has been awarded “Best New Radiology Vendor” and “Best New Software” in the 2016 Minnies Awards, a recognition of the best and brightest in the medical imaging field. Arterys has the rare distinction of being recognized in two categories in the same year.
The award-winning Arterys 4D Flow software is an end-to-end clinical solution that leverages cloud computing and advanced analytics to cardiac MRI scans to produce a comprehensive exam of the entire heart. The product provides the novel ability to seamlessly receive, view, and quantify blood flow data anywhere in the heart and its surrounding vessels. It also shortens and simplifies the scan acquisition and post-processing of the images.
“Before Arterys 4D Flow system, there was no simple, comprehensive, quantitative, and repeatable way to measure blood flow,” said Fabien Beckers, CEO of Arterys. “We’re proud to be recognized as an innovator by AuntMinnie and hope that, by making imaging diagnostics more intelligent and accessible, we are improving the lives of millions of patients.”
Now in their 17th year, the Minnies Awards provide a forum for radiology professionals to acknowledge the contributions of their peers prior to the annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting held in Chicago. Minnies candidates are nominated by AuntMinnie.com members and selected by a panel of experts in the field through two rounds of voting. This year’s finalists were selected from a pool of 215 semifinal candidates in 14 categories.
Arterys Inc., founded in 2011, opens medical imaging to the power of the cloud. The company's medical imaging SaaS analytics platform leverages the power of cloud computation and advanced analytics to support diagnostic and therapeutic decisions.
