Samsung's BiometryAssist and LaborAssist programs will utilize Intel's Core i3 processor, OpenVino toolkit, and OpenCV library to provide fetal measurements and fetal angle of progression (AoP) measurements during labor. These measurements can help provide optimal prenatal care and prevent stillbirths related to growth restrictions, according to the companies.
BiometryAssist provides physicians with fetal measurements in about 85 milliseconds, according to Samsung. Meanwhile, LaborAssist provides estimates of fetal AoP and head direction, which physicians can use to monitor real-time progression of delivery and determine the best delivery method, Samsung noted.

Samsung also announced that it will continue its partnership with Intel for its other artificial intelligence ultrasound solutions, including Nerve Tracking, SW Beamforming, and AI Module.
