November 20, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) software developer Zebra Medical Vision and Israeli health system Clalit Health Services are directing attention to two research projects being presented at the upcoming RSNA 2018 meeting in Chicago.

The first study involves a retrospective cohort of 48,227 individuals with abdominal CT studies. Clalit researchers will report on Wednesday that a combination of automatic Zebra Medical algorithms was equivalent to the contemporary Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) scoring system in providing risk stratification for major and hip-specific osteoporotic hip fractures, Zebra Medical said.

A second study to be presented on Tuesday morning showed that a coronary calcium score derived from nongated CT scans by Zebra Medical's algorithms led to 4.5% better risk classification for cardiac events, according to the company.
