Busan Joint and Spine Focused Intensive Care Geo-in Hospital, led by the Head of the Hospital, Seung Jun Lee, and the Director of the Hospital, Young Kyung Min, has announced the implementation of MediAI. MediAI is a musculoskeletal medical image analysis solution provided by Crescom, a company specializing in artificial intelligence medical image analysis solutions.


Geo-in Hospital started using both MediAI-BA and MediAI-FX through this contract with Crescom. MediAI-BA is an artificial intelligence bone age growth analysis solution that utilizes a hybrid method based on Crescom's patented technology. It aims to overcome the limitations of the current bone age reading techniques, GP and TW3 while incorporating their respective strengths. MediAI-FX is a wrist fracture detection solution that can accurately identify scaphoid fractures, which are difficult to read.


In addition, collaboration is underway to advance and commercialize MediAI-OA, an artificial intelligence solution capable of automatically quantitatively analyzing the severity of knee arthritis.


Young Kyung Min, the director of Geo-in Hospital, said, "We anticipate that the implementation of Crescom's artificial intelligence solution will provide patients prompt and accurate diagnoses, enhancing the quality of local healthcare and promoting the well-being of musculoskeletal patients in the Busan, Ulsan, and Gyeongsangnam-do regions."


This contract was supported by the 2023 AI Voucher of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA). This voucher enables medical institutions to purchase and introduce AI solutions.
