Cutting-edge software that uses artificial intelligence to help people who suffer a stroke has been launched at Queen’s and King George hospitals. 

A stroke is a life-threatening condition that happens when blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.

It is vital sufferers receive immediate treatment to limit the amount of damage done. 

Brainomix software analyses brain scans for blocked blood vessels and highlights areas of possible damage. 

The technology is designed to act as an “expert second opinion” and help doctors make faster treatment decisions according to stroke co-clinical lead, Amanda Martin. 

It can be used as a mobile app and allows doctors to easily share scanned images with colleagues at other hospitals across London.

This will make it easier for them to rapidly diagnose patients and make clinical and treatment decisions wherever they are. 

Amanda said: “At a local level, this decision support tool will help us to speed up diagnosis and therefore patient care in a simple and safe way.

“With other sites coming on-board; we are hoping that the implementation of Brainomix will support the highly specialised thrombectomy pathway, facilitating the timely transfer of those eligible for treatment to the trust.”

Devesh Sinha, stroke clinical lead, said: “Our Stroke team are truly part of the modern age advancement of care; we are also delighted to be working as a network across the region to collaborate stroke care.”
