Subtle Medical Awarded Breakthrough Patent for Reduced Contrast Agent Dosage in Medical Imaging Exams

Via PR News Wire | May 4, 2021

Subtle Medical, Inc., a leading healthcare technology company using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the speed and quality of medical imaging, announced the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 10,997,716 for their licensed innovative software that uses deep learning to drastically reduce contrast dosage needed during contrast-enhanced medical imaging exams. The patent was invented by Drs. Greg Zaharchuk and Enhao Gong prior to co-founding Subtle Medical and is based on technology exclusively licensed from Stanford University. This marks another milestone in Subtle’s mission to accelerate universal access to faster, safer, and smarter medical imaging.

Contrast agents are routinely used in over 100 million medical imaging exams each year, including MR, CT, and Ultrasound, to improve the visualization of anatomies and possible pathologies. “This patent recognizes our AI software as a fundamentally new solution that can significantly improve the visualization before and after contrast administration with lower doses of contrast than are currently used,” said Enhao Gong, PhD, Co-founder and CEO of Subtle Medical. “As a result, significantly reduced contrast agent dosage can be used to obtain diagnostic information in medical imaging, enabling safer exams for patients worldwide… Continue reading.
