Graphics processing unit (GPU) technology developer NVIDIA and GE Healthcare are deepening their 10-year partnership with a new concentration on artificial intelligence (AI), which they announced at RSNA 2017 in Chicago.

The collaboration includes the NVIDIA-powered Revolution Frontier CT scanner, advancements to the Vivid E95 4D ultrasound system, and development of GE Healthcare's Applied Intelligence analytics software.

The new CT system is two times faster in imaging processing than its predecessor and expected to deliver better clinical outcomes in liver lesion detection and kidney lesion characterization because of its speed, according to the firms. This potentially benefits patients with compromised renal function and could reduce noninterpretable scans with gemstone spectral imaging (GSI) metal artefact reduction (MAR).

Also, the Vivid E95 4D system uses NVIDIA's GPUs to provide visualization and quantification while streamlining workflows across the cSound imaging platform.

The applied intelligence software will use NVIDIA GPUs, the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing platform, and the NVIDIA GPU Cloud container registry to support deep-learning algorithms in new healthcare analytic applications.
