Qure.ai gets nod for AI tube placement software

2020 02 20 00 48 1332 Approved Stamp 400

Artificial intelligence (AI) software developer Qure.ai has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its qXR-BT software for guiding breathing tube placement.

qXR-BT was designed for assessing tube placements on x-ray -- a common procedure with rates for incorrect tube placement estimated at up to 25%, the company said.

The qXT-BT algorithm analyzes tube position, automates measurements, and gives physicians a report on the tube's positional accuracy in under a minute. This enables clinicians to rapidly identify if the tube is properly positioned or whether extra attention is required.

The algorithm is vendor-agnostic and is designed to work on both portable and stationary x-ray machines, the company said. The software is designed to automate the manual measurement process for both endotracheal and tracheostomy tubes, Qure.ai said.
