AWS for Industries

AWS features Amazon HealthLake Imaging at RSNA22

RSNA22 2022

Medical imaging plays a powerful role in diagnosis, treatment plans, and even medical research. To better help healthcare customers leverage imaging to deliver patient-centered care, AWS will be presenting  purpose-built medical imaging solutions at RSNA22 in Chicago that can help improve clinical collaboration and accelerate innovation.

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2022 is the largest medical imaging forum in the world, bringing together senior leaders, including provider organizations, enterprises, startups, clinicians, vendors, and researchers from 116+ countries. This year’s theme is ‘Empowering Patients and Partners in Care’, and will illustrate the dynamic role imaging plays in disease management, multidisciplinary collaboration, and patient care. RSNA annual conference will take place at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 27-December 1, 2022.

Workshop: Accelerate your AI-based medical imaging research with MONAI Core on Amazon SageMaker | December 1, 9:00 AM | Lakeside Center, Level 3, Deep Learning Lab

AWS speakers: Dr. Christopher Austin, Alex Lemm, and Steven Fu

Educational Courses

Artificial Intelligence has been proven to support radiologist clinical decision making and to help reduce doctor burnout. Amazon SageMaker is end-to-end data science platform to build, train, and run machine learning models. MONAI Core is a PyTorch-based, open-source library for deep learning training of medical imaging models. In this workshop, researchers and data scientists will learn how MONAI Core running on SageMaker lets them explore more deep neural network architectures, more hyperparameters, and more hypotheses compared to static on-premises infrastructure for medical imaging workloads. They will also learn how to use the open source ITKWidgets library as part of the data science preprocessing phase to create interactive 3D medical image visualizations directly in Jupyter notebooks.

AWS Demonstrations

Amazon HealthLake Imaging: On November 15, 2022 AWS announced Amazon HealthLake Imaging (HealthLake Imaging), a new HIPAA-eligible capability that enables healthcare providers and their software partners to store, access, and analyze medical images at petabyte scale.

Find out how Amazon HealthLake Imaging enables fast access to medical imaging data with sub-second image retrieval latencies and provides up to a 40% reduction in storage costs by employing advanced compression—storing a single copy of medical images in the cloud.

Featured AWS Customers and Partners:

  • Alara Imaging – Alara Imaging will be presenting their ability to self-provision and deploy its Gateway in under five minutes with a single command line, de-identify private health information on-premises, securely transfer medical imaging data to Amazon HealthLake Imaging, query on-premise image archives for image retrieval to HealthLake Imaging, and push images back to local PACS from HealthLake Imaging.
  • ApolloEI – The Apollo arcc solution, hosted on AWS and leveraging the Amazon HealthLake Imaging technology, combines DICOM image management and viewing on a single pane of glass. Using Amazon S3 with Apollo arcc allows the showing of DICOM and non-DICOM simultaneously. Two patients, each containing historical imaging information, will be used to demonstrate its smooth navigation using timelines and worklists, and fast display of images in multiple viewports.
  • Arterys – Learn how Arterys offers radiology departments a dedicated AI medical imaging cloud platform to deploy and manage clinical applications and AI workflow solutions—addressing the cost, complexity, and challenges of managing medical imaging data, analysis, and reporting. Also, learn more about how Arterys empowers radiologists with AI-driven workflow for better clinical decisions in cancer patients.
  • Axial3D – Axial3D will be demonstrating how they are leveraging Amazon HealthLake Imaging as part of their future plans to manage medical image data as part of developing new machine learning algorithms—accelerating medical imaging innovation and enabling increased availability and reliability.
  • CoreSlicer – CoreSlicer will engage users in an experience where they can select CT or MR imaging cases to analyze. They can select one of CoreSlicer’s deep learning models to run (body composition, cardiovascular calcification, and more), and be presented with a graphical report which can be saved or shared. Optionally, they can choose to view and edit the source images.
  • Intelerad – RSNA attendees can visit the Intelerad team at booth #6107 and the AWS team at booth #6958 to receive a demo of Amazon HealthLake Imaging. Intelerad will be showcasing how its Enterprise Viewer (EV) product, a zero-footprint mobile and desktop diagnostic viewer, can stream images from its Cloud Long-Term Archive (Cloud LTA) solution. During the demo, the Intelerad Viewer will seamlessly access studies from local PACS, from Intelerad’s Cloud LTA, and directly from the global Amazon HealthLake Imaging platform. This demo highlights the speed and efficiency of the solutions and Intelerad’s ability to flexibly support multiple archives in a single seamless experience.
  • Nvidia – The NVIDIA MONAI-Amazon HealthLake Imaging demonstration shows medical imaging AI at enterprise speed, security, and scale. MONAI is a framework for developing accelerated medical AI applications with SDKs for labeling, training, and inference for many different use cases, including classification, segmentation, and detection across radiology, pathology, and video. There are two demonstrations implemented by using Amazon SageMaker—the first showing breast density classification, and the second showing spleen 3D segmentation. Images stored on HealthLake Imaging are sent to a deployed MONAI Deploy application (called a MAP), where inference is performed and results sent back for display.
  • Radboudumc – Radboud University Medical Center aims to bridge the gap between clinic and research departments around the world. At RSNA, we will showcase Grand Challenge Connect (GCC) on AWS, which builds on Amazon HealthLake Imaging to deliver Medical AI capabilities and enables researchers and clinicians to closely collaborate on the development of machine learning solutions.
  • Radical Imaging – Radical Imaging will be demonstrating FlexView, a zero-footprint medical imaging web viewer connected to Amazon HealthLake Imaging. The focus will be to show off how fast HealthLake Imaging can provide the images into the viewer, offering the user low-latency access to their imaging studies. Once in the viewer, we will demonstrate useful features of FlexView for building custom tools and workflows, further adding to the value of their data stored in HealthLake Imaging.
