AI-KOA Chosen as Signature Project in Government Grant

AI-KOA focuses on evaluation and correct referral of patients with suspected knee osteoarthritis, using state-of-the-art AI-based solutions. Plain X-ray remains mainstay radiological workup for knee osteoarthritis. However, increasingly MRI of knee is being performed for knee osteoarthritis without any added value. In fact it increases workload of radiologists and may cause downstream unnecessary treatments for patients.

AI-KOA seeks to streamline diagnostics through SmartReferral; if there are no red-flag symptoms, patients should be referred for plain weight-bearing x-ray of knee. If such an X-ray already exists, the patient should be referred for further diagnostic workup. In all cases, however, the medical doctor should have the last say and can bypass this restriction.
