Automated Pulmonary Nodule Tracking
With Thynk Health’s Nodule Nav, healthcare organizations can improve follow up care from 29% to near 100% with automated tracking of patients within a healthcare organization’s lung cancer screening program. Thynk Health processes radiology reports, extracting number of nodules, nodule size, location, and nodule characteristics. Combined with patient age and history, this information is a significant predictor of lung cancer (research). The clinical team will be able to automatically track nodule changes within each appointment, flag nodules for follow-up, and recommend next steps. All of this is accomplished via artificial intelligence, allowing radiologists to keep traditional workflow in place and require no additional work.
Designed by Physicians for Physicians
