NCIMI collaborating with NHS Trusts for innovation and research
January 13, 2022
Two NHS trusts at opposite ends of the UK are reaping the benefits of collaborating and being part of NCIMI.
The team at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust brought significant experience of research to the consortium and supported NCIMI with its bid application to become a national centre of excellence in AI and medical imaging.
The Leeds team are working closely with Mirada Medical and Alliance Medical Ltd on a pilot study to explore how AI could be used to support detection of lymphoma through PET-CT scanning. Leeds is one of three sites participating in the study, along with Newcastle and Cornwall.
Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust has created two new jobs through its partnership with NCIMI. It has added a full-time research data manager and a part-time research radiographer role to its department. The team is made up of consultants Giles Maskell and Daniel Kim, data manager Nick Ashley and research radiographer Eve Richards.
It is one of the consortium’s biggest contributors of labelled data – having identified and labelled over 13,000 cases across 4 different diagnoses.
RCHT has worked on two NCIMI exemplar projects. The first, in collaboration with GE Healthcare, aims to produce AI-driven algorithms for the identification of serious and urgent findings on chest x-rays. This will speed up diagnosis and enable doctors in intensive care to quickly intervene, resulting in improved outcomes for patients.
The second is in collaboration with the University of Oxford and aims to develop intelligent alert systems for patients with COVID-19 infection.
They have identified and labelled over 13,000 cases across 4 different diagnoses elevating the GE Chest X-ray project to prominence as the leading example within the NCIMI portfolio.
