Minnesota firefighters now have a new tool to help fight fires and save lives.

On Wednesday, the State Fire Marshal’s Division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (SFMD) launched a new fire hazard analysis tool and made it available to departments across the state. State.

“We can be very specific and targeted based on the data-driven approach,” Fridley Fire Chief Maddison Zikmund said.

Officials say the State Fire Marshal Division (SFMD) began planning for the database in 2018, the year after fire deaths in the state hit a 22-year high (68). Since then, staff members have been working with Vancouver-based UrbanLogiq to create a platform that can help assess fire risks, identify trends, and ultimately save lives.

“When it comes to fire prevention, this is not a one-size-fits-all solution,” Deputy Fire Marshal Bob Reif said in a statement. “Each community is unique. In terms of risk reduction strategies, what works for one department may not work for another. Access to this critical information enables firefighters to save more lives by providing solutions specific to the needs of their individual communities. »

According to DPS, the new tool presents data that can help fire chiefs:

  • Identify high-risk populations and areas to better focus their resources,
  • See fire station staffing needs based on the number and types of fires,
  • Plan where mobile teams should park platforms at certain times based on trends,
  • Determine which neighborhoods need more public education on fire prevention,
  • Measure and track fire mitigation efforts, and
  • Strategize how to build future fire stations.

“We are committed to providing Minnesota Fire Departments with the tools they need to continue to serve their communities at the highest level,” said Minnesota State Fire Marshal Jim Smith. “Data is essential to preventing fires, saving lives and continuing the important work that firefighters do every day. That’s why we’re so passionate about this tool and proud to put it in the hands of our firefighters.

The tool includes fire data dating back to 2004, as well as open-source and demographic information that can help firefighters understand each community’s risk profile and prevention needs.

“It could be old housing stock, aging infrastructure, or the people who live in that area,” Zikmund said.

The assessment tool also allows fire departments to get ahead of the flame by using the results to travel to high-risk areas and educate the community about fire safety.

“We will always be there to help residents after an emergency occurs, but our golden gift is to prevent that emergency from happening in the first place,” Zikmund said.

After spending the past few months training fire chiefs in Minnesota to use the new tool, the DPS hopes it will make a difference.

After peaking in 2017, the number of fire deaths in Minnesota dropped to 37 in 2018, but has increased in recent years, with 47 reported in 2019 and 53 in 2020.

Smoking-related fires are currently the leading cause of fire deaths in Minnesota, according to the DPS.

Trustifi’s Analytics Tool Helps Businesses Improve Security, Reduce Costs and Increase ROI https://opendice.net/trustifis-analytics-tool-helps-businesses-improve-security-reduce-costs-and-increase-roi/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://opendice.net/trustifis-analytics-tool-helps-businesses-improve-security-reduce-costs-and-increase-roi/ Just as a report reveals a targeted Microsoft security vulnerability, Trustifi’s new tool shows businesses how to get best-in-class protection at a reduced cost through a layered approach LAS VEGAS, NV/ACCESSWIRE/November 14, 2022/ As businesses across the board grapple with declining revenue and a potentially sluggish economy, the leading SaaS email cybersecurity provider Trustifi launched […]]]>

Just as a report reveals a targeted Microsoft security vulnerability, Trustifi’s new tool shows businesses how to get best-in-class protection at a reduced cost through a layered approach

LAS VEGAS, NV/ACCESSWIRE/November 14, 2022/ As businesses across the board grapple with declining revenue and a potentially sluggish economy, the leading SaaS email cybersecurity provider Trustifi launched a cost analysis calculator to help organizations reassess and improve their security strategies. The tool helps demonstrate that companies in various vertical markets can achieve superior security protection by combining Microsoft’s more basic E3 solution with Trustifi’s specialized and cutting-edge security solution; instead of just using Microsoft’s broader E5 solution.

Trustifi is simple the cost analysis tool can be accessed here. When users enter the number of seats in their organization, the tool immediately displays the savings on a monthly and annual basis that would result from combining Microsoft’s E3 offering with the comprehensive, sophisticated, and relays from Trustifi, compared to the E5 package. Moreover, a recent study reported by media like CPO Magazine and Computer Weekly showed that Microsoft 365 email security enabled some phishing attacks to circumvent its defenses, giving more credence to the layered security approach as opposed to a single-vendor policy.

Companies that use Microsoft E3 in combination with Trustifi will still benefit from many powerful security-related features included in the E5 offering, such as insider risk management, advanced discovery and auditing, protection and governance information, etc. Yet with this more diverse strategy, they will benefit from additional cutting-edge features such as AI-powered filters with optical character recognition to combat sophisticated contextual threats that now target many C-level frameworks. Users can You can also take advantage of Trustifi’s easy-to-use government-grade AES-256 encryption and one-click compliance capabilities. Additionally, specialized security software tends to be priced more competitively per user than some of the more well-known brands on the market. For example, Trustifi’s award-winning cybersecurity solutions cost $7 per user per month.

“There is a misconception that Microsoft’s E5 solution – or any single solution – is sufficient as an overall security offering,” said Maor Dahan, CTO and co-founder of Trustifi. “Companies now face a multitude of evolving threats from highly motivated malicious actors. They need to be more strategic in their security implementations. Combining the E3 package with a highly effective solution like Trustifi can provide more functionality In the process, companies can achieve cost savings, increasing the return on investment of their investments.Our analytics tool is an easy way to see how much companies can gain from this model.

The numbers don’t lie

A company with 500 seats will spend $28,500 on Microsoft’s E5 solution, based on the suggested price of $57 per seat per month. By comparison, the combination of Microsoft E3 ($36.00/seat) and Trustifi ($7/seat) would cost that same company $21,500 per seat per month. This represents a savings of $7,000 per month or $84,000 per year.

Similarly, a company with 2,000 users would save $28,000 per month if they upgraded to E3 and Trustifi, or $336,000 per year, compared to the E5 package. And either way, users get superior security with a greater range of advanced features, bundled together covering both inbound and outbound email data protection.

The CPO’s article on Microsoft’s recent email security shortcomings claimed that hackers were specifically targeting this vendor, working to “design and test each phishing attack to ensure it circumvents Microsoft’s default security defenses”. This scenario in which a major traditional security solution fails has become far too common in the market. It also illustrates how important it is for companies to layer their security stacks, ideally including a specialized solution that offers a wider range of advanced features. Such an approach is wiser than relying on a single vendor, even as strong as Microsoft.

Trustifi’s solution, for example, can detect content-based phishing attacks that many conventional SEG-based security solutions miss. SEG solutions are simply not designed to interpret the context of a message, such as a nefarious request from a hacked executive account asking for a bank transfer or sensitive personal credentials. SEG (Security Email Gateway) solutions rely on a blacklist/whitelist approach, which filters mail from known malicious IP addresses, but does little to thwart these convincing “impostor” attacks.

Trustifi’s solutions have been recognized by prestigious industry and channel sources including the American Business Association, Golden Bridge Awards, Expert Insights, CRN Magazine and Channel Visions Magazine. In recognition, Trustifi has also been recognized by Gartner® as a Representative Vendor for its Outbound Shield, Inbound Shield and Email Account Compromise Detection solution in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Email Security*.

Sporttrade is the premier sports trading platform in the United States.

New Jersey bettors can trade real-time sports bets like contracts, using financial trading strategies rather than hacks to try and beat bettors. Sporttrade’s unique live betting capabilities also offer the potential of a sports prediction and analysis tool.

Sporttrade is unique from traditional sports betting and betting exchanges. Traditional sports betting has bettors who set the odds. On betting exchanges, bettors set their own odds and accept bets from other users. This gives punters a range of odds to choose from, but each set of odds has a set bet limit. So the amount a bettor can bet – and win – depends in part on all the other bettors betting on a specific bet.

On Sporttrade, punters exchange bets ranging from $0 to $99 per contract. Winning bets are paid $100 and losing bets are paid nothing. With this pricing model, Sporttrade doesn’t care about being on the winning side of a bet. It just needs enough users to satisfy bets (Sporttrade has partnered with big companies that buy and sell contracts to ensure customers can make their first trades.)

Sporttrade has this search potential because its transaction price is equal to the probability of winning a bet. Its real-time bettor responses and high availability lend the platform to research sports predictions and analysis. It also does not rely on traditional products sport bets and exchanges need to improve their live betting offerings.

Micro betting and live betting

Every national sports betting brand offers live betting. Odds will change in real time as the outcomes of different bets change in-game. In traditional sports betting, there are often downtimes where bets are locked in when odds are recalculated. This interrupts the live betting experience.

To keep bettors engaged in the game, gambling startups are introducing micro betting. Micro betting involves betting on how the next game will go or how certain players will perform. Even though these bets settle in minutes or seconds, bettors should be careful of ever-changing bets.

“If you’re trying to make micro-bets, you’re bound to commit every few seconds,” said Sporttrade founder and CEO Alex Kane. “I think when it comes to entertainment, you have to give the customer as much flexibility as possible. So it would be like when you went to the movies, but you couldn’t get drunk or really enjoy it because every minute you had to decide what was going to happen next.

Sporttrade users can already bet based on the course of a particular game. If the Broncos miss a game, nothing prevents a Sporttrade user from selling their contracts with the Broncos or buying into the opposing team. Since users react smoothly to the game in real time, Sporttrade does not need to invite its bettors with micro bets.

In contrast, traditional sports betting needs micro paris to rely on their in-game live betting offers. Traditional sports betting requires downtime for recalculation. Micro-betting is a way to improve in-game engagement while recalculation speeds are slowly improving.

“I think there will be a place for that [micro betting], one hundred percent,” Kane said. “But I think it’s probably going to be for the type of bettor who…watches every game…and even then it’s probably going to be tiring for that customer.”

The potential of Sporttrade as a sports forecasting and analysis tool

Sporttrade’s hyper-liquid markets make it an ideal tool for monitoring bettors’ reactions in real time. There are enough trades and prices tight enough that small shifts in punters’ opinion translate into contract price shifts.

“You might have a tight enough market that you actually see a delta [change] next chance to win their division based on what they decided to do…or not,” Kane said. “Whether or not the market agrees with a representative’s decision…for the front office of an organization.

There is definitely value there, [but] it’s more on the research side.

Tracking events that lead to price changes reveals how teams are performing against fan expectations. Prediction markets aren’t the only source of data teams can leverage. However, their potential as research tools is an object of study in all fields, from finance to politics. Sporttrade is an ideal platform to study as a sports prediction market.

“I think coaching decisions and things [like that] could be very interesting, especially towards the end of the half and the end of the match [decisions] whether to go,” Kane said.

A close study of Sporttrade market data could reveal new information that researchers, organizations, and sports analysts could use to better predict match outcomes and analyze team strengths and weaknesses.

Sporttrade also has a wealth of information on when bettors are most engaged in the games. Obviously, interest increases during the game and decreases between games. However, a detailed analysis of bettor activity might find gradients in bettor interest, informing sports broadcasts or in-game entertainment.

The future of sports trading

While Sporttrade was not designed as a prediction market, it is suited to be studied as such. Data deals could be a future revenue stream that supplements the low-margin revenue that Sporttrade derives from commissions on winning bets. Sporttrade’s ability to develop these data agreements will be strengthened after launching the futures markets and generating data on confidence in a team throughout the season.

Sporttrade’s potential in sports is based on its unique trading capabilities and pricing structure. A glance at the prices can reveal the probability of a bet. Tight pricing ensures that small shifts in bettors’ sentiment are reflected in a contract’s new price.

Unlike other prediction markets, Sporttrade is primarily an entertainment product. The political prediction markets, PredictIt and Iowa Electronic Markets, are designed as academic research tools. The event-driven contract exchange, Kalshi, provides financial hedging tools that farmers have used for about a century.

Financial trading of all types relies to some extent on speculators. Speculators are users who treat them as gambling platforms and pump most of the money into these markets. Users who use Kalshi for legitimate hedging purposes owe their reliable payouts in part to speculators.

Since Sporttrade is a gambling platform, it does not face the same difficult questions about balancing gambling speculators and hedging risk or conducting research. If the trading application can launch successfully in several States with legal sports bettingSporttrade could also become a formidable data provider for sports predictions and the research behind them.

WASHINGTON, October 31, 2022 IBM today announces a demonstration project with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to test an artificial intelligence (AI)-based intellectual property (IP) analysis tool, IBM IP Advisor with Watson Demonstration System. Leverage conversational AI technology with IBM Watson Wizardand content exploration and guided navigation solutions with IBM Watson Discoverythe system is designed to help users discover and analyze relevant patent data more efficiently, freeing them up for strategic value-added tasks.

Information that is publicly known before the effective filing date of a US patent application, such as currently owned and similar US patents and published patent applications, is called prior art. When an inventor has an idea for a new product, a prior art survey can be helpful in understanding the landscape of the invention field by assessing not only the prior art, but also competitors and opportunities for innovation in the field. However, with the continued increase in the number of patent applications filed and the growing volume of patent data, finding relevant and accurate information and analyzing prior art can be difficult and time consuming. , especially for new inventors, high street retailers and consumers. not steeped in patent law. IBM aims to help meet this challenge and promote greater participation in the innovation process with IBM IP Advisor with Watson Demonstration System.

By enabling natural language processing of queries with IBM Watson Discovery technology, the demo system can help users locate relevant information using their own terminology, without the need to use specific terms and complex methods. And leveraging IBM Watson Assistant conversational AI technology as a guide, users can ask questions to the built-in virtual agents to better inform and optimize their patent analysis.

IBM IP Advisor with Watson Demonstration System uses a subset of publicly available US patent data and is available for public testing and comment on the USPTO Open Data Portal through November 30, 2022.

“Research and analysis of prior art is the foundation of a successful product or service launch, but the growth of prior art coupled with the need for appropriate keywords and the right patent classifications can be a barrier to entry for the everyday inventor,” said Steve La Fleche, Managing Director, US Public and Federal Markets for IBM. “I’m proud of our work with the USPTO in support of their goal to not only deploy smarter technology, but also to build a better and more accessible IP system.”

Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have published the Small WEC analysis tool, the purpose of which is to provide free basic information on the performance of different types of wave energy converters in various ocean contexts. .

Illustration/Different Types of Wave Energy Conversion Devices (Screenshot/Small WEC Analysis Tool)

Developed as part of the collaboration between U.S. Department of Energy Office of Water Power Technologies and NRELthe Small WEC scan tool has recently been released as a publicly available online graphical user interface that offers key background data on wave energy converters (WEC).

The tool allows users to explore and compare the performance of small WECs by visualizing WEC data. Users can select different wave energy devices and choose a specific scale to visualize the data, and they also have the ability to compare different devices, enter specific energy goals, and explore WECs that meet their criteria.

“There are many different types of WECs. But these concepts represent the most popular mechanisms that inventors envision when designing their own,” said Jim McNallyTechnological Innovation, Modeling and Evaluation Engineer at NREL, who led the development of the tool.

The tool would also be useful for researchers and funders looking for a benchmark measurement of how much energy a particular WEC should produce. This information helps those decision makers assess whether the innovation merits funding or lab testing space, according to NREL.

“With WECs, there are several ways to estimate how much power they will produce, but often those estimates aren’t entirely accurate,” McNally said. “Decision makers needed an interface where they could quickly look up an estimate and be able to see if a proposal is in the ballpark.”

Having this information in a publicly accessible interface, along with historical data, is vital for anyone in the energy wave sector, which includes startups, universities and researchers, NREL said.

Additionally, the energy estimates found in the tool can either help speed up an inventor’s design cycle or prevent them from wasting time on a flawed concept from the get-go. This information just helps close the design loop, according to McNally.

Due to the harsh marine environments in which WECs must operate and the complex regulatory requirements imposed on device deployments, advances in wave energy technology have been slow.

While not huge, small-scale WECs could help meet the needs of small communities and projects, and the data found in the Small WEC Analysis Tool will help identify the best WECs for the job. , according to NREL.

In December 2021a vulnerability in a widely used logging library that hadn’t been patched since 2013 caused a real security meltdown.

The score of 10/10 Log4Shell flaw in Log4j, an open-source logging software found virtually everywhere from online games to enterprise software and cloud data centers, has claimed many victims from Adobe and Cloudflare to Twitter and Minecraft due to of his omnipresent presence. It was described by security experts as a “design failure of catastrophic proportions” and demonstrated the potentially far-reaching consequences of sending the wrong code.

Based in Boston AppMapgo through TechCrunch disrupts the startup battlefield this week wants to prevent this bad code from going into production. The open-source dynamic execution code analysis tool, which the startup says is the first of its kind, is the brainchild of Elizabeth Lawler, who knows a thing or two about security. Prior to founding AppMap, she founded DevOps security startup Conjur, which was acquired by CyberArk in 2017, and served as chief data officer for Generation Health, later acquired by CVS.

After selling two companies to large enterprises with lots of legacy software, Lawler witnessed how developers struggled to understand the systems they were tasked with improving and how difficult it was to deliver fast and secure code in microservices. complex and cloud applications.

“I’m surprised people have a mental model of how things work that’s actually disconnected from how it actually works,” Lawler told TechCrunch. “When we don’t know how our software works, we make better guesses when we write code.”

Picture credits: AppMap

This led to the creation of AppMap, which is based on the simple idea that developers need to be able to see the behavior of software as they write it in order to avoid problems when running the software. Unlike static analysis tools that don’t show runtime information, AppMap – which was built from the ground up over a three-year period – runs in the code editor to show developers what components communicate with which components, at what rate and latency, at what network speed, and if there are errors between them, allowing developers to gain actionable insights and make improvements faster than ever before.

This is all done in an interactive code editor extension, which AppMap designed with the help of comic artists and musicians to make it as easy to use and intuitive as possible.

“I’m a data scientist, so I know how overwhelming data can be,” Lawler said. “Google Maps elegantly showed us how maps can be personalized and localized, so we used it as a starting point for how we wanted to approach the problem of Big Data.”

AppMap at Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt

To coincide with TechCrunch Disrupt, AppMap is launching three new features: the ability to share and collaborate with other engineers; performance analysis that alerts developers when code changes will impact performance and scalability; and security analysis that can identify software execution code issues in a developer’s code editor before they commit their code, whether they be data leaks and client secrets in log files or missing or incorrect authentication or authorization.

“We can see the types of issues that are now in the growing OWASP Top 10. Static issues have decreased in prevalence because we have good scanners for them, but what we don’t have good scanners for , it’s those dynamic issues that are designed in nature, if you look at the CWE Top 25, almost half of them are code design issues.

As it is based on open source, which is apparent from the startup’s community approach to modifying its product and adding new features, AppMap is free for developers. “We don’t think you should be charged for self-awareness in programming,” Lawler said. “If we’re going to integrate with your GitHub and need to provide backend functions or storage, then those are paid services.”

AppMap, which is a VC-backed pre-revenue startup, currently has more than 20,000 customers — a figure growing 20% ​​every month — with developers from IBM, NASA, Sonos and Salesforce using its product. He’s also growing his team, which is made up of employees who have coded at some point in their careers and have deep experience in DevOps, automation, cybersecurity, and test-driven development. Kevin Gilpin, technical co-founder of AppMap, describes the highlight of his career as delivering “build your vehicle online” pages for Ford.

Although it only launched in 2021, the vision of the startup goes far beyond prevent developers from submitting bad code. “We spend a lot of time and energy instrumenting downstream elements of our application, but we’ve never instrumented the build process. We’ve never really seen people think, design and create that way. I think having observability data at that time will open up a lot of opportunities. As AppMap evolves, I’d like to think about how it becomes even more important than performance analysis and becomes more of an assistive technology in this area.

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GL Communications Inc., a global leader in telecommunications test and measurement solutions, spoke to the press regarding its new Speech Analysis Tool (VAT™) which analyzes the audio content in any narrowband (NB), wideband (WB), or super wideband (SWB) PCM audio file and generates a variety of audio measurements, including frequency bandwidth, voice activity, active speech level, noise level, DC offset, and RMS power.

[For illustration refer to, https://www.gl.com/images/vat-web-architecture.jpg]

GL’s VAT™ operations are fully automated by detecting audio files in a user-specified directory and analyzing them as the files appear. Using configuration parameters associated with the degraded voice file name, the VAT™ can specify the tests to run, specify the configuration for each test, and associate the reference file with tests that require both degraded files and reference.

“The GL VAT™ app can generate a variety of audio measurements, including round-trip and one-way delay measurement, audio loss analysis, double-talk measurements, and voice quality analysis (when also combined with GL VQT POLQA solution) Additionally, GL VAT™ supports speech-to-text pass/fail analysis when combined with GL VQT POLQA solution. GL speech-to-text,” said Robert Bichefsky, director of engineering at GL Communications Inc.

He further added: “All results associated with VAT™ are sent to the GL WebViewer™ central database accessible using the WebViewer™ web browser. If the network connection is lost between VAT™ and the database, the data is saved internally. Once the network connection is restored, data is automatically sent from the VAT™ to the GL WebViewer™ database, so no data is lost.

Main characteristics

  • GL VAT™ supports analysis of any Raw PCM voice file, including NB, WB and SWB. Audio files can be generated from any application, including GL VQuad™ and vMobile™
  • Fully automated operation with log file containing results and stored in central GL database easily accessible using GL WebViewer™
  • VAT™ CLI (Command Line Interface) supports remote operation
  • Audio analysis includes round trip and one-way delay, off-hook audio analysis, double talk, power level and frequency analysis, voice activity, active speech level and noise level, and DC offset
  • Supports Voice Quality Test (VQT) analysis when paired with GL VQT Software
  • Supports multiple analytical tests per individual voice file

Emory Healthcare Researcher Wins Two Awards Using Konica Minolta’s AI Analysis Tool with Dynamic Digital X-Ray in Shoulder Pathology https://opendice.net/emory-healthcare-researcher-wins-two-awards-using-konica-minoltas-ai-analysis-tool-with-dynamic-digital-x-ray-in-shoulder-pathology-2/ Mon, 17 Oct 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://opendice.net/emory-healthcare-researcher-wins-two-awards-using-konica-minoltas-ai-analysis-tool-with-dynamic-digital-x-ray-in-shoulder-pathology-2/ October 17, 2022 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc., congratulates Emory Healthcare researchers who won two awards at 2022 Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Eastern Region Resident Research Symposium for the presentation, “Automated Artificial Intelligence Analysis of Scapula Dynamics Using Dynamic Digital Radiography: An Initial Reliability Study.” Zaamin B.

October 17, 2022 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc., congratulates Emory Healthcare researchers who won two awards at 2022 Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Eastern Region Resident Research Symposium for the presentation, “Automated Artificial Intelligence Analysis of Scapula Dynamics Using Dynamic Digital Radiography: An Initial Reliability Study.” Zaamin B. HussainMD, an orthopedic surgery resident working with Eric WagnerMD, MSc, Director of Upper Extremity Research and Adjunct Professor at Emory Health, received a Second Place Award and the Presenter’s Choice Award. Then, he will present his research to the OREF National Colloquium Later this year.

Dr. Hussain’s research evaluated a prototype artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed by Konica Minolta Healthcare to characterize shoulder dynamics. Seventy-three shoulders (23 normal controls, 41 rotator cuff tears, and nine adhesive capsulitis) were imaged using Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) and reviewed by two trained readers.

With DDR image data, Dr. Hussain was able to visualize changes in shoulder pathology and, using proof of concept AI tool, acquire measurements to calculate the scapulohumeral rhythm (SHR). The SHR measurement is a manual and time-consuming process to calculate the glenohumeral ratio and assess the function of the shoulder joint. The new AI tool uses a machine learning algorithm using a convolutional neural network architecture to automate this analysis. Dr. Hussain’s research demonstrated that the AI ​​tool has good reliability (ICC 0.58 (95% confidence interval 0.4-0.71)) between manual and AI measurements of SHR.

“We have demonstrated early promise for this AI tool, which can enable faster measurement of SHR and enable automated image analysis and diagnosis in shoulder pathology,” says Dr. Hussain. “DDR offers the best of both worlds: it allows us to dynamically visualize the shoulder while it is in motion and allows a quantitative measurement of the anatomy of the shoulder in motion, the gold standard for discerning changes in joint anatomy. Further improvement of the prototype AI tool could lead to more efficient integration of SHR measurements into the clinical workflow and increase the clinical utility of DDR in a clinical setting.

Konica Minolta has partnered with Emory Healthcare, one of the nation’s most comprehensive academic healthcare systems, and its physicians at Orthopedics & Spine Hospital, including Drs. Wagner and Hussain, to assess the clinical value of DDR in an orthopedic setting. The AI ​​prototype tool for SHR measurements is the achievement of research and development at Konica Minolta in AI-assisted image analysis and diagnosis with DDR. This is a new imaging application to assess the two critical shoulder joints allowing physicians to better understand the patient’s injury. As institutions adopt DDR into clinical practice, Konica Minolta continues to work with these centers to provide the technical and technological support needed to evaluate new and existing uses of this new technology.

“One of the most exciting aspects of DDR is the ability to see what’s going on in a patient’s joints in a way we’ve never been able to see before,” says Dr. Wagner. “In patients with limited range of motion, I can pinpoint where the patient is having difficulty and see the source of the limitations. This information is particularly useful in treatment decisions and pre-surgical planning. For example, in the shoulder, using DDR, we can differentiate motion limitations of the shoulder versus the scapula, potentially improving our diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms. New tools that help quantify how structures move relative to each other only add to our knowledge of the individual patient so we can deliver the best possible outcome. Although this work and collaboration has already resulted in national and international presentations, publications and research awards, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg with this technology.

“Konica Minolta is committed to listening to the needs of its customers and providing solutions that help them answer a clinical question so they can continue to make a difference in patient care,” said John Sabol, PhD, Head of Clinical Research at Konica Minolta Healthcare. “Together with our academic and clinical users, we can advance the science behind DDR, whether thoracic, orthopedic or anatomical imaging, enabling them to improve radiography with the goal of reducing costs and taking better decisions, sooner.”
