In July 2018, Guerbet and IBM announced their decision to collaborate on developing AI software for liver cancer diagnostics. Their latest agreement is geared toward developing a tool that uses AI to detect, segment, characterize, and monitor prostate lesions on MRI scans over time.

The two companies aim to have their AI tool support radiologists and oncologists not only in diagnosing prostate cancer as early as possible but also in deciding on the most appropriate therapeutic strategy.

They also plan to make the AI tool compatible with most PACS for direct integration into existing workflows.
