Automated interpretation of pulmonary function tests

The interpretation of pulmonary function tests (PFTs) is an everyday task for all pulmonologists. At ArtiQ we are committed to make this easier. Automated protocolling according to the latest international standards reduces the administrative burden. In addition, prediction of the probabilities of disease presence holds the potential to come to a final diagnosis faster.

Spend your time wisely

    Spend your time on clinical decision making and patient consultation, not on PFT protocolling.

maximize diagnostic accuracy

    Leverage the power of AI to predict probabilities of disease presence.

Boost your consistency

    Standardize every PFT report at your center in line with international guidelines.

Define your next steps

    Get recommendations on appropriate next steps.

What elements are in the automated report?

Based on PFT data (spirometry, airways resistance, lung volumes, and diffusion capacity) and patient characteristics (age, pack-years, sex, and body mass index), an automated report will be generated. Each report contains three key components:

  • 1. PFT protocoling: automated interpretation of the lung function according to international guidelines. It describes the patterns of abnormalities and signs of physiological dysfunctions.
  • 2. Disease probabilities: the core intelligence of the software uses artificial intelligence (AI) to give probabilities of disease presence to help to reach the final diagnosis.
  • 3. Recommended further steps: recommendations for the appropriate next steps that should be taken with the patient. These recommendations serve for diagnostic optimization and guidance.

fully integrated in your clinical workflow

Our goal is to make your workflow more streamlined, so no need to type in data, export, import, download, login… The ArtiQ.PFT report is generated automatically and instantaneously exactly where you want it.

Thanks to our could-based technology, ArtiQ.PFT can be fully integrated with your PFT machines or electronic patient record (EPR) system to allow complete automation of providing input data and saving the report in the exact location where you need it.

ArtiQ.PFT is a CE class I medical device.

Validation study

The ArtiQ.PFT algorithm is validated in a multi-center study. Below some key metrics on the study or read more here:

I am convinced that this program is of utmost importance for the interpretation of pulmonary function in clinical practice as it gives a percentage value for different possible pathologies. It is better than the standard quick look of the pulmonologist and may save time.
