New keyword features added to artificial intelligence veterinary software in response to demand   

October 2018 – SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Vetology® Innovations, LLC, an advanced veterinary technology and innovation company, announced Wednesday the addition of a new keyword search functionality for its artificial intelligence (AI) radiology software, enhancing the abilities of this first-of-its-kind software.

Veterinary professionals already using Vetology AI will immediately be able to access the new keyword search functionality of the system, which scans over 5 million unique X-Ray images and 500,000 cases housed in Vetology’s® database.

Using the new search function will allow veterinary professionals to comparatively evaluate new patient X-Rays in accordance with previously diagnosed cases from across the nation.

“Our goal has always been to leverage technology and patient data to improve the medical evaluation process for veterinarians. Keyword search is a feature that we’ve received many requests for and we’re excited to begin rolling it out to our customers,” said Dr. Seth Wallack, DACVR, founder of Vetology® Innovations. “Being able to quickly search our vast digital archive and compare radiologist evaluated images to those of a current patient will undoubtedly be a useful resource speeding up the patient evaluation process.”

Vetology® has consistently rolled out new features for its first-of-its-kind AI-powered diagnostic software. Last month, Vetology made headlines by adding new 90 second automated heart evaluation tools, including heart size evaluation and Vertebral Heart Score calculation.

Both automated heart evaluation tools work within the Vetology® AI dashboard automatically when a clinic sends an X-Ray to the secure Vetology® cloud. There, the software automatically evaluates an animal’s heart size and the comparative size of the heart in relation to the vertebral body size, creating a vertebral heart score. This process results in a Vetology AI heart evaluation report being back into the veterinarian’s hands as quickly as 90 seconds after the X-rays have fully uploaded.

“We’re constantly looking at new ways to improve patient diagnostics and faster response times without sacrificing quality. . With the automated heart evaluation, veterinarians no longer have to calculate heart size by hand and ultimately have more time to tend to their patients or their day-to-day responsibilities. This was a home run for our customers and we think the new search functionality will have a similar effect,” said Wallack. “We’re not just reverse-engineering diagnostic solutions being used in human medicine, we’re innovating new technologies not found elsewhere specifically for the veterinary industry.”

Vetology® AI includes image storage, unlimited automated heart size evaluations and automated Vertebral Heart Score calculations. Additionally, sign up is simple and can be completed online at https://ai.Vetology.net/. This technology cost-effectively answers a rising unmet demand in the veterinary industry as more owner’s request, and progressive veterinary hospitals deliver, the advancing level of veterinary care.

Automated AI heart evaluation technology for pets rolls out nationwide

September 2018 – SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Vetology® Innovations, LLC, an advanced veterinary technology and innovation company, will now offer automated heart evaluation tools to veterinarians as part of the company’s artificial intelligence (AI) radiology software.Vetology® introduced its AI radiology software last month. The software is designed to provide veterinary professionals with a first-of-its-kind automated diagnostic analysis of patient radiographs.

Individuals subscribing to the Vetology® AI software suite will now gain full access to cardiac-specific tools, including automated heart size evaluation and automated Vertebral Heart Score calculations. These features work within the Vetology® AI dashboard automatically when a clinic uploads an X-Ray to the secure Vetology® cloud. There, the software automatically evaluates an animal’s heart size and the comparative size the heart in relation to the vertebral body size, creating a vertebral heart score. This process results in a Vetology AI heart evaluation report being back into the veterinarian’s hands as quickly as 2 minutes after the X-rays have fully uploaded.

“The ability for a veterinarian to receive rapid heart analysis before they even begin evaluating a patient’s radiograph is invaluable. This technology leverages AI neural networks that are not yet available in human medicine. This new AI resource fulfills every attending doctor’s hope of having important diagnostic information available almost instantaneously.,” said Dr. Seth Wallack, DACVR, founder of Vetology® Innovations.

With chest x-rays being the most common screening test to look for heart disease, the heart evaluation technology of Vetology® AI can be a very powerful resource for veterinarians. Utilizing Vetology® AI’s heart evaluation tools within a veterinary hospital’s daily patient workflow is easy and requires limited setup. Veterinary hospitals receive a heart size evaluation and Vertebral Heart Score for each patient via their email and/or fax.

“We have been using Vetology’s® AI software in our hospital for some time and are excited to incorporate the new AI-guided heart measurement tools into our patient evaluation process. They are easy-to-use and are considerably quicker than manually measuring and performing the calculations,” said Richard Glassberg, D.V.M. at Sunnycrest Animal Care Center in Fullerton, California. “These tools have the potential to greatly improve the time it takes for veterinarians to evaluate a patient’s cardiovascular health.”

Artificial intelligence for pet X-Rays

August 2018 – SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Vetology® Innovations, LLC, an advanced technology company serving the veterinary industry, announced on Tuesday, the launch of the only artificial intelligence (AI) radiology software designed to provide veterinary professionals with a first-of-its-kind automated diagnostic resource of patient radiographs( X-Rays).

Vetology® AI, which has been in development since 2017, provides a comprehensive, rapid and affordable resource for veterinarians evaluating patient radiographs and determining necessary medical treatments.

The AI software developed by Vetology® utilizes artificial neural networks that are trained on known normal and abnormal x-ray images. Through this specialized machine learning process, the software is able to alert a veterinarian to the presence or lack of medical abnormalities without human oversight.

“Pioneering the creation of this technology for the veterinary industry has been our goal for many years. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished and what it means for the future of those who are committed to delivering better patient care,” said Dr. Seth Wallack, DACVR, founder of Vetology® Innovations. “Without a doubt, AI will have a dramatic and positive effect on the entire veterinary industry.”

With Vetology® AI, veterinarians will be able to upload an image and receive a written analysis in less than 90 seconds, allowing for more immediate decision making and consultation with pet owners.

Key features of the Vetology® AI software include automated heart size evaluation and Vertebral Heart Score Calculations. Vetology® AI works autonomously, automatically uploading a clinic’s x-rays to the secure Vetology® cloud where the software intuitively determines the potential of cardiac problems based on heart size and the comparative size of the heart in relation to the vertebral body size of the patient.

With chest x-rays being the most common screening test to look for lung infection, cancer or heart disease, the heart evaluation technology of Vetology® AI can be a very powerful resource for veterinarians.

“The automated heart evaluation function of our AI technology is something we are excited about because without any input from a human, the software can immediately notify a veterinarian that further cardiac evaluation may be needed,” said Wallack. “This technology is not even being used in human medicine yet and will continue to improve with self-teaching.”

Vetology® AI includes image storage, unlimited automated heart size evaluations and automated Vertebral Heart Score calculations. Additionally, sign up is simple and can be completed online at https://ai.vetology.net/. This technology cost-effectively answers a rising unmet demand in the veterinary industry as more owner’s request, and progressive veterinary hospitals deliver, an advancing level of veterinary care.
