Nordic Medtech partners with Subtle Medical to improve medical imaging with AI-powered radiology software

The partnership aims to provide higher quality PET imaging across Nordic and Baltic countries.

Menlo Park – January 26, 2021 – Nordic Medtech announced today that they have partnered with ​Subtle Medical​, a U.S based healthcare technology company, to distribute the company’s artificial intelligence (AI)-based software solutions for improved medical imaging acquisition. The collaboration aims to enable more efficient and higher precision PET imaging.

SubtlePETTM denoises scans that were conducted in 25% of the original scan duration while maintaining high quality diagnostic images. The solution offers a broad range of benefits to hospitals and imaging centers, including improved image quality, higher scanner efficiency, and positive impacts on workflow and patient experience.

SubtlePET is compatible with all scanner brands and integrates seamlessly with any PET scanner and PACS to enhance images during acquisition without any alteration to existing workflows. The company also has SubtleMR, which uses denoising and super resolution to improve the image quality of a site’s accelerated MRI protocols.

“Our goal is to not only make medical imaging safer and more focused on the patient, but also help imaging institutions and radiologists run a more efficient operation. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with Nordic Medtech and are excited to expand our technology to new Nordic and Baltic regions,” said ​Dr. Enhao Gong, Founder & CEO, Subtle Medical​.

The distribution agreement covers the countries of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and associated geographies. Both solutions are CE Certified and FDA Cleared.

With the ability to achieve superior image quality even on accelerated scans, centers can achieve more efficient scan times, improving workflow and patient comfort.. This is truly a game changer and we are proud to be a part of this mission.”
