Arterys, a Leader in Cloud Medical Imaging, Grows Product and Partner Lineup, Supports Launch of Amazon HealthLake Imaging



SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arterys, developer of the world’s first internet platform for medical imaging, now part of Tempus, announced its organic growth of products and partnerships to serve radiologists with even faster and more accurate diagnostic tools.

“Arterys is at a pivotal point in time in which we are really uniquely positioned to scale our solutions,” said Arterys CEO John Axerio-Cilies. “We’re excited to introduce new partnerships and product updates that will support physicians in delivering personalized, data-driven patient care.”

Arterys Breast AI gains traction concluding Breast Cancer Awareness Month 

Arterys’ Breast AI product has seen rapid expansion, with several new customers recently adopting the cloud-based solution and many more committed to 2023.

Three recent technology adopters chose Arterys for different reasons:

  • In Salina, Kansas, Arterys Breast AI’s SaaS model allowed the site to implement advanced technology with an operational budget. 
  • In Florida, a national breast company was excited by the breast triage worklist combined with the CAD case score results, helping to direct patients to advanced diagnostic imaging immediately — they will expand the solution over multiple sites nationwide over the next year
  • A third site in Montana found that Arterys was agnostic to multiple gantry vendors and that the cloud solution could be added to the new gantry and deployed to older ones without capital equipment.

Arterys enhances ecosystem with new strategic partnerships

  • InferVision — Arterys and InferVision have partnered to offer an optimized AI-driven lung oncology workflow with FDA-cleared detection, segmentation, and follow-up. Using the partnership’s automated selection of nodule types and automated Lung-rads scoring and RECIST increases reporting efficiency.
  • DeepLook Medical — Arterys and DeepLook Medical have joined forces to offer physicians efficiency and remove subjectivity from their oncology workflow. DeepLook’s FDA-cleared DL Precise™ automated segmentation tool has been added to the Arterys radiology platform. Precise measurements are crucial to accurately characterize tumors for cancer treatment plans, as well as to assess the tumor’s growth rate over time or tumor shrinkage in response to therapy. This partnership created a one-click tool to automate the segmentation and measurement of suspicious objects in all imaging modalities, moving one step closer to delivering on a vision of precision medicine and personalized patient care.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) — Arterys is working with AWS to launch Amazon HealthLake Imaging, a new HIPAA-eligible capability for storing, sharing, and analyzing medical images at petabyte scale, now available in preview. As an AWS Partner, Arterys is leveraging HealthLake Imaging to enhance performance and responsiveness across its applications, such as Lung AI, which helps physicians analyze and track lung nodules by automatically processing Lung CT scans which delivers improved speed, efficiency, and accuracy of diagnostic decisions. Arterys will demonstrate the use of HealthLake Imaging in the AWS booth (#6958) during RSNA.  
  • HealthLake Imaging enables access to medical imaging data with sub-second image retrieval latencies at scale powered by cloud-native APIs and applications from AWS Partners. Providers can realize the cost savings of transitioning to the cloud while preserving low latency performance, eliminating the burden of infrastructure management, and enabling AI/ML to drive increased value from imaging data with support from other services. This allows providers to focus resources on meeting the growing demands of clinical workflows and delivering high-quality patient care.

Arterys has been recently acquired by Tempus, a technology company advancing precision medicine through the practical application of AI. Launched in 2015, the company’s platform helps enable physicians to make near real-time, data-driven decisions to deliver personalized patient care and, in parallel, facilitates discovery, development, and delivery of optimal therapeutics to enable doctors to make data-driven treatment decisions, drug companies to make better drugs, and patients to live longer and healthier lives. Together, the two companies aim to better support physicians by providing the AI-enabled solutions necessary to optimize care.
