Automated Systolic Heart Function Assessment

CrossChallenge Of Our Times

Patients visiting you with symptoms, but you are unsure of their etiology.

Basic assessment of cardiac functions is important for timely assessment of numerous conditions. However, bedside assessment of key variables such as Ejection Fraction, Stroke Volume, Cardiac Output require considerable skill and experience.

CheckInnovation at Your Fingertips

Our algorithms are developed by applying advanced deep learning techniques, to compute measurements and eliminate the challenges. Furthermore, Kosmos delivers the innovation by emphasizing transparency in its algorithm measurements.

Kos icon echo

Reduce time delays as seen in current echo testing pathways

  1. KOSMOS torso is placed on the body to capture the heart cycles of the Apical Four Chamber (A4C) in the first 5 seconds.
  2. The probe is then rotated to capture the heart cycles of the Apical Two Chamber (A2C) view in 5 seconds.
  3. The probe is removed and then the in-built AI algorithms will calculate key systolic heart function metrics from these acquisitions, almost instantaneously.

Automated Heart Anatomy Labeling

CrossChallenge Of Our Times

Cardiac scanning can be a challenge with a steep learning curve. Novice users can lose orientation during image acquisition and find it difficult to identify anatomical structures in their imaging plane.

CheckAI Innovation Delivered

Our algorithms apply object detection techniques to reliably identify and annotate structures, even in the case of technically difficult patients. Automated annotation provides real-time assistance in obtaining more accurate images, needed for clinical interpretation.

  1. When the Kosmos Torso is placed with the right orientation on the body, the algorithm labels the Apical 4 Chamber view of the Heart.
  2. It is then followed by the A5C view, which includes the aorta and the left ventricular outflow tract.
  3. Next we see the Apical 2 Chamber view and as the probe is continued to be rotated, the labels show an inverted heart on the screen.

Automated Image Grading

CrossChallenge of our times

Good image acquisition depends on the clinician's training, experience, device type and the patient. Today more than ever, we are faced with larger BMI and other patients, that present image acquisition challenges.

CheckAI Innovation Delivered

Our deep learning algorithms provide a real time image quality score, using an established POCUS grading system of 1 to 5. Based on the image appearance and key anatomical structures, the algorithm grades the quality of the acquired images, real time. Once an acceptable image quality is captured, the algorithm then proceeds with the calculation of systolic heart function.

Kos icon accuracy

Drive accuracy for systolic function assessment

  1. When the Kosmos Torso is placed with the right orientation on the body, the algorithm grades the quality of the image acquisition, real time.
  2. Acceptable quality is graded 3 and above, and is indicated in green.
  3. A grade of 5 is considered as an excellent acquisition. When the probe is moved and the ideal orientation is lost, the scoring grade changes to 2, which means the image acquired, cannot be used for AI calculations.

Automated Acquisition Guidance

CrossChallenge of our times

Medical devices can require considerable training effort and time to learn. When hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness is required, substantial variation in individual skill can occur. This affects diagnostic capability and can be difficult to resolve using one training method for all solutions.

CheckAI Innovation Delivered

Our algorithms provide real-time guidance on probe movement, assisting the user to obtain a diagnostically acceptable image.

  1. When the Kosmos Torso is placed with the right orientation on the body, the guidance algorithm recognizes the 4 chamber view of the heart. When the probe is moved and tilted up, the guidance screen indicates tilt down to rectify the orientation.
  2. However, if the probe is continued to be tilted down, or moved posteriorly, then the heart will be foreshortened, and the system will indicate tilt up on the screen to rectify it.
  3. If the probe is rotated counter-clockwise, the guidance algorithm will indicate clockwise on the screen, to rectify the orientation.
