Revolutionizing the assessment of rheumatoid arthritis
We develop pioneering tools based on thermal imaging and artificial intelligence to improve the assessment of rheumatoid arthritis
Thermography is an imaging technique that detects heat. As warmth is a cardinal sign of inflammation, thermography can be an effective tool for objectively measure joint inflammation. Thermography has excellent properties that make it a highly suitable for the assessment of rheumatoid arthritis: It is sensitive, fast, non-invasive, affordable, and portable.
Why machine learning?
Machine learning is a subfield of artificial Intelligence that uses algorithms and data to train computers in recognizing patterns. By incorporating machine learning into thermal imaging analysis, it is possible to automate the analysis process and obtain accurate results without the need for manual interpretation of images.
Enhancing clinical practice and research
Enhance arthritis detection
Detection of joint inflammation through physical examination can be a challenge. The use of AI-powered thermal imaging analysis provides a sensitive, immediate, and automated solution for routinely identifying hand synovitis.
Enable remote monitoring
Remote monitoring require objective measurements of joint inflammation.The utilization of AI-powered thermal imaging analysis presents an affordable, portable, automatic and user-friendly solution for patients to assess for synovitis from home.
The Scientific Evidence has been published in one of the most prestigious journal in the field of rheumatology: RMD Open.
