Submission Deadline: Wednesday 24th July 2019, Midday
Funding Available: £240,000
This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by Opportunity North East and NHS Scotland. Successful applicants will receive 100% funding and have access to advice from NHS Grampian, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC), the University of Aberdeen, the Canon Medical Research Europe and the funders.
Organisations can apply for a share of £240,000 to develop an innovative AI solution for radiological diagnosis of fractures of upper and/or lower limbs.
The aim is to improve front-line clinical decision making and patient management in unscheduled care facilities.
The solution will improve clinical workflow and safety by optimising clinical decision making and management pathways. It must use artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning algorithms to interpret data from upper limb (wrist or hand) and lower limb (ankle or foot) radiographs and linked text-based reports. Accurate determination of the presence or absence of a fracture in these areas has the potential to significantly improve patient care.
