GE selected the medical center in November 2019 as the first hospital in the U.S. to study Optima XR240amx with Critical Care Suite, an AI-based application designed to identify urgent cases such as pneumothorax and flag these exams for urgent review, according to the institution. The Cleveland researchers completed the evaluation phase of Critical Care Suite in December, noting the technology flagged seven to 15 collapsed lungs per day.

The system has now been placed into daily clinical use, and principal investigator Dr. Amit Gupta said in a press release that the technology has helped improve workflow and patient care.
The group is now using the system to aid with COVID-19 imaging. It travels to different intensive care units (ICU) at the medical center, and future research with GE could improve ICU care for patients with COVID-19, according to University Hospitals.
