In a strategic move to strengthen their integration and commercialization strategy for third-party artificial intelligence technologies, Intrasense has joined Guerbet Group as an autonomous entity. This collaboration aims to leverage the algorithms developed by Guerbet for the detection of liver lesions, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, and bone lesions. Guerbet and Intrasense, both French Healthcare Association members, aim to position themselves as major players in artificial intelligence applied to medical imaging and oncology.
David Hale, CEO of Guerbet, states that this alliance marks a major milestone in Guerbet’s strategic roadmap for artificial intelligence. According to him, the innovative algorithms developed by Guerbet over the past years can be fully utilized within Intrasense’s software platforms, which aim to integrate artificial intelligence into the clinical practice of medical imaging professionals. Additionally, Intrasense will benefit from unique visibility through Guerbet’s global commercial presence, especially during major medical imaging conferences.
