A project that uses new analytics technology developed by The Medical Imaging Informatics Innovation Center, Mayo Clinic and IBM collaboration, is helping radiologists detect aneurysms with greater speed and accuracy. The method combines advanced imaging with analytics and has a 95 percent accuracy rate in detecting deadly ruptures of blood vessels in the brain, compared to 70 percent for manual interpretation.
GE Healthcare, Intel Corporation and Mayo Clinic began investigating a new model of health care delivery for patients at increased risk of re-hospitalization. The yearlong research study will determine if remote home monitoring of patients with chronic diseases will reduce hospitalizations and emergency department visits.
Mayo Clinic and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign announced a strategic alliance designed to promote a broad spectrum of collaborative research, development of new technologies and clinical tools, and design and implementation of novel education programs.
Orthopedic surgeons at Mayo Clinic in Florida began using a new robotic arm system to assist them in replacing a small area of the knee with an implant in people with limited osteoarthritis. The device helps them preserve much more of the knee than was possible previously, making the surgery an excellent option for people with moderate inflammation and pain in one side of their knee due to age-related wear and tear.
The DICOM Index Tracker (DIT), designed at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, is being developed at Mayo Clinic in Arizona in cooperation with Arizona State University. The imaging exam tracking system enables a comprehensive view of a patient's radiation exposure over time and compiles it into an accessible format for providers.
Mayo Clinic announced the implementation of a front-line system of technology for electronic data capture and management. Mayo's Clinical Trials Management System makes it easier for industry sponsors and investigators at sites across the country to collaborate with Mayo on complex and groundbreaking research studies and clinical trials.
