contextflow & Neologica partner to bring comprehensive chest CT support to radiologists

Vienna, Austria (June 5, 2024) – Neologica, the long-running developer of advanced medical imaging software solutions, and contextflow announce a commercial partnership to bring contextflow’s ADVANCE Chest CT solution to Neologica’s radiology base. 

Under the partnership, contextflow’s innovative computer-aided detection support for chest CT will be integrated into Neologica’s LogiPACS. Founded in 2002, Neologica develops a range of products, including a PACS server, DICOM viewer and online patient portal. All of the company’s products are developed in-house for maximum interoperability. By partnering with contextflow, Neologica can offer its users a powerful tool to detect lung cancer, ILD patterns and COPD on chest CT.

contextflow’s core technology is ADVANCE Chest CT, an AI-based medical device software that detects, visualizes and quantifies nodules and lung disease patterns to improve the speed and quality of radiology reporting with consistent, objective information. Its upcoming malignancy scoring feature has been shown to not only detect lung cancer sooner but also to reduce both false positives and false negatives (*Adams, Scott J et al., JACR September 2022). 

As Marco Sambin, CEO at Neologica explains, “It’s undeniable that the PACS market is expressing a strong demand for diagnostic decision support solutions through AI. Neologica’s partnership with contextflow is a response to this request within the realm of chest CT imaging. ADVANCE Chest CT is an extremely advanced (CE MDR certified) product for the detection of lung nodules and other lung pathologies. Users of our LogiPACS and RemotEye Viewer will have access to an AI-enhanced workflow with seamless integration into our software modules.”

In addition to increased access to clinical decision support for chest CT, the partnership aims to reduce false positives and patient stress in relation to lung cancer detection via malignancy scoring. Malignancy scoring is a newly released feature that enables a radiologist to compare suspicious nodules to thousands of others with known outcomes in order to indicate the probability that a given  nodule is malignant or benign. As contextflow Chief Commercial Officer Marcel Wassink puts it, “Malignancy scoring has been validated in a clinical study to reduce false positive nodule detection by 18% while detecting lung cancer up to one year earlier. We hope this level of certainty helps avoid patient anxiety and reduce unnecessary costs and work for radiologists.”
