STATdx and contextflow announce partnership to provide radiologists with improved tools to tackle differential diagnoses

- New partnership provides improved clinical decision support for radiologists evaluating lung CTs

- Allows radiologists to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits when exploring STATdx content from within contextflow SEARCH Lung CT

Elsevier is delighted to announce a new product integration combining Elsevier’s STATdx platform with the power of AI from contextflow SEARCH Lung CT.

The integration supports radiologists when evaluating complex cases, saving time, increasing confidence and fostering ongoing learning for radiologists by allowing an automatic accumulation of CME credits.

Elsevier’s STATdx platform enables users to gain expert diagnostic support, increasing speed, accuracy and confidence when reporting on a wide range of imaging. The contextflow SEARCH Lung CT system provides objective, qualitative and quantitative information for interstitial lung disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer cases directly within the picture archiving and communications system (PACS). The integration of the two provides radiologists with the opportunity to expand their diagnostic support.

Dr. Kotter, contextflow advisor and Consultant in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, University of Freiburg - Medical Center outlined the benefits of the integration for radiologists, "Reporting differential diagnoses is a key task for radiologists. The combination of STATdx trusted content integrated into contextflow SEARCH Lung CT means that the radiologist has access to the best qualitative and quantitative information at their fingertips to report on complex cases. We have trialledthis solution in our clinic, and we are very much looking forward to having this integration in place to support our daily clinical work."  

Tim Morris, VP, GTM, EMEALAAP at Elsevier continued, “We are delighted to announce this new integration with contextflow, which provides radiologists with crucial support in their diagnoses. The combination of day-to-day clinical functionality whilst also fostering ongoing learning is an incredibly powerful tool for radiologists.”

Marcel Wassink, Chief Commercial Officer at contextflow commented, “We are excited with this integration. Providing relevant differential diagnosis literature from STATdx directly to radiologists using contextflow will help them report chest CT cases faster and with more ease, whilst also accumulating CME credits.”
