From Startup to World Class
Subtle Medical is an innovative healthcare technology company that is helping to tackle the safety and efficiency challenges of medical imaging for hospitals and imaging centers. SubtlePET is an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered technology from Subtle Medical that enables centers to conduct faster PET (positron emission tomography) scans, enabling increased throughput. Subtle Medical’s technology denoises scans acquired in 1/4th of the original scan time thus reducing the exposure times for the patients – especially those undergoing repeat scans- creating a better and safer patient experience. In addition, faster scans increase the revenue potential for healthcare institutions by allowing them to scan more patients a day.
Due to the innovative solutions that they continue to bring to the healthcare industry, Subtle Medical has recently been named to the 2020 CB Insights AI 100 List of Most Innovative Artificial Intelligence Startups. This list is CB Insights’ annual ranking of the 100 most promising AI startups internationally. Other named companies include startups working on quantum machine learning, protein modeling, synthetic voice, and more. Subtle Medical was honored for achievements in faster and safer medical imaging through their two FDA-cleared & CE Marked products, SubtlePET and SubtleMR as well as many other innovations that they are bringing to market.
Subtle Medical and Intel AI Builders Program
For over a year, Subtle Medical has been a member of the Intel AI Builders program, an enterprise ecosystem of ISVs, OEMs, and others that helps accelerate AI innovation on Intel architecture. Through their collaboration with the Intel AI Builders program, Subtle Medical worked directly with Intel to optimize their solution to use the IntelⓇ Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit, enabling them to seamlessly integrate their SubtlePET technology into the existing clinical computing infrastructure and workflows. By integrating the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO Toolkit into SubtlePET, Subtle Medical achieved an improvement in inference speed for their technology. This improvement is critical to differentiate Subtle Medical from similar solution providers that focus on post-processing and computer-aided diagnosis products by providing faster image acquisition and workflow.
Helping to Combat the Covid-19 Pandemic
In today’s pandemic environment medical imaging is playing an important role in the detection and diagnoses of Covid-19. While some elective scans can be postponed to allow for the influx of other medical imaging needs, many cancer patients in need of PET scans cannot afford to wait. Subtle Medical’s SubtlePET software can potentially help support the influx of imaging volume during the current COVID-19 crisis by making PET scans faster, therefore allowing additional CT scans to be performed. Faster PET exams also provide additional flexibility for imaging centers and hospitals to perform necessary cleaning and maintenance between patients which helps keep the schedule on track.
