Spirit Week Dress-up Themes at Vmoksha

If employees are having fun, they work harder, maintain their composure in a crisis, stay longer, and take better care of the organization; this is what we believe and follow at Vmoksha. To break the monotonous work routine, Vmoksha brings employees together for Spirit Week: Four days of unique dress color themes.

As month-end was just around the corner, we decided to have some fun by wearing unique dress color during the week, i.e., from 28th to 31st May. We all dressed up in Blue on Monday, Black on Tuesday, White/Yellow on Wednesday, and Red on Thursday. Every day, we gather in the evening to take pics and have fun time while few are busy in sharing the pics on social media. The celebrations geared up on the last day as we also celebrated our regular month-end birthday celebrations along with snacks and fun activities. Vmoksha has also rewarded few employees with performance excellence awards for their best services to the organization.

The mastermind behind the Spirit Week is Nethra Manjunath, our HR executive, who planned and motivated teams and made this an exciting event.

The Spirit Week at work not only brings some fun to the office, but it is also a great way to bring employees together for a quick break and some socialization unrelated to work.

RSNA 2017 – Dominated by AI Imaging Startups

What is RSNA?

Every year, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) hosts its annual meeting the week after Thanksgiving in Chicago. This is one of the largest medical conferences in the world, with over 50,000 attendees from 57 countries. This year, RSNA was organized from 26th Nov to 1st Dec and gathered approximately 700 exhibitors.

Highlight of RSNA 2017

During RSNA 2016, there was hype around AI in Radiology Imaging Diagnostics. This year, about 20 startup companies came up with the AI models that can augment radiologists findings. The AI models were available across Modalities and Pathology. Even though it can not replace a radiologist, it improves accuracy and speed of diagnostics thereby reducing the cost of diagnosis.  For some of the companies, FDA/CE has approved their AI Models which means that the results are as accurate as a human.

Relevance of AI machine learning/Deep learning in Radiology Diagnostics

Radiology diagnostic industry in the USA

US Diagnostic Imaging Market is around $4.5 billion and expected to grow 36.43 Billion by 2021.

North America is one of the most lucrative regions for medical imaging market because of its better infrastructure facilities. When compared to emerging regions, it has high-end purchasing power coupled with reimbursement facilities. U.S is the dominating region owing to its population base having large insurance coverage, advancement in technology, a sizable aging population along with the prevalence of chronic disease.

Radiology diagnostics current state

According to a market research, sponsored by IBM, there were roughly 800 million multi-slice exams performed in the United States in 2015 alone. Those studies generated approximately 60 billion medical images. At those volumes, each of 31,000 odd radiologists in the U.S., has to view an image every two seconds of every working day for an entire year to find potentially life-saving information from a handful of images hidden in a sea of data. It is evident from the data that medical images are going to get generated exponentially and there is a shortage of radiologist, on the other hand, it will take ten years of training to become a radiologist. In this scenario, AI Imaging technology has relevance.

Statistics of Medical images vs. Case studies conducted vs. Radiologists

Impact of the emerging trend for Radiologists

The average radiologist’s salary is $286,000 a year. In the U.S., there are 31,000 radiologists.

That means around 9 billion dollars a year is being spent on radiologists. AI and Deep learning is predicted to bring down the headcount of the radiologist but will not replace the radiologist. In RSNA 2017, some of the AI models developed demonstrated capability on par with a professional radiologist. The radiologist can embrace AI or be left behind.

Emerging Medical Imaging AI Companies who Participated in RSNA 2017

Arterys

Arterys helps doctors diagnose heart problems in just 15 seconds while it takes around 30 minutes for a human.
