Biotics AI is a company that uses the power of AI in order to improve prenatal ultrasound scans all over the world. It is worth noting that there are various types of fetal malformations that go undiagnosed which means that the patient doesn’t know about it until it gets too late. Since there is a shortage of time and staff, the prenatal ultrasound scans are done in a hurry which is why some malformations in the fetus can be misdiagnosed. Biotics AI has built a platform powered by AI that plugs into the ultrasound machine and gives the reports automatically. The company adds that, to do proper analysis, “BioticsAI looks at images and sees if images of the fetus have been captured properly from all angles according to international standards. Mistakes happen, but it’s important that doctors can learn from them and improve so that the same mistake doesn’t happen again and again”.
CEO of the company, Robhy Bustami, says, “BioticsAI processes all of the images and videos captured during the screening to localize fetus malformations, validate the quality and completeness of the screening, and then extract all the information to automatically generate reports,” He adds that “Our goal isn’t to build like the next $200,000 ultrasound machine. Our goal is to be able to integrate with an ultrasound machine that’s been around for eight years and significantly improve the quality of that screening,” He also mentions that “On average, OB/GYNs are spending 15 minutes per patient on generating reports and documentation. And our goal with our product is to just mitigate that by automatically generating these reports and extracting all this information, providing valuable time savings back to the physician and back to the hospital,”
Bustami also gives us information that “We focus the majority of our AI efforts on second-trimester anomaly screenings because this is where 90% of potential fetal abnormalities are screened for,” However, it is worth noting that if “BioticsAI works well, the company could soon expand to adjacent fields, such as gynecology, urology, and neonatology. It could become the AI diagnostics platform for reproductive health and beyond.”
