In an ongoing effort to get more AI into healthcare, the FDA just approved the marketing of an algorithm that detects wrist fractures.
The news: The software, called OsteoDetect, identifies fractures in x-rays. Two different studies by Imagen Tech, the company that makes it, showed that it made orthopedic hand surgeons better at spotting fractures.
Background: This isn’t the first AI to get the green light from the FDA. This year the agency has given the go-ahead for an AI that diagnoses a certain kind of eye disease, and another that helps detect strokes.
The future: Last month, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced that the agency was writing new rules to speed up approvals for AI-based devices and tools.
