Automated interpretation of pulmonary function tests
Artificial Intelligence to automate the interpretation of pulmonary function tests to accurately and timely support diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of lung diseases.
Challenges with the interpretation
of Pulmonary function tests
According to the Medscape Pulmonologist Compenstation report of 2019, 76% of pulmonologists spend 10 hours or more each week on administration and paperwork. 40% even reports a staggering 20 hours or more.
ArtiQ supports pulmonologists to spend more time with patients instead of writing reports.
The quality of the interpretation of PFTs depends on expertise. It requires constant up-to-date knowledge of all the latest international guidelines. In addition, experience is key to recognize different disease patterns early on.
ArtiQ supports pulmonologists with this expertise for each interpretation.
Several studies show a high variability in PFT interpretations between individual pulmonologists. This could have several reasons: it takes time to adapt to new guidelines; reports made in bulk or at the end of the day are more prone to human error; not the same level of detail is applied…
ArtiQ ensures each report is consistent and of the highest quality.
Not Specific for Diagnosis
Recognizing disease patterns in PFT results requires experience and the ability to take into account a large amount of parameters and their various relationships.
ArtiQ leverages the power of AI to support recognition of disease patterns early on in the diagnostic process.
The ArtiQ.PFT software automates the interpretation of pulmonary function tests (PFTs). It reduces the administrative burden and allows pulmonologists to focus on clinical decision making and patient consult. ArtiQ.PFT uses artificial intelligence to support detection of disease patterns early on in the diagnostic process and thus holds the potential to reduce redundant testing.
ArtiQ.PFT is a CE class IIa medical device. ArtiQ is ISO 13485 certified.
