AIRS Medical Gains FDA 510(k) Clearance for AI-Powered MRI Software SwiftMR™

South Korea-based healthcare startup AIRS Medical Inc. proudly announces that its innovative AI-powered MRI reconstruction software, SwiftMR™, has received FDA 510(k) clearance. This cutting-edge software significantly enhances MRI images, improving both efficiency and patient experience.

Transforming MRI Imaging with AI

MRI scans, though safe and reliable, often require 20-90 minutes, leading to patient discomfort and sometimes necessitating sedation. The extended scan times also contribute to lengthy wait times, often stretching to months. SwiftMR™ addresses these challenges by leveraging deep learning technology to enhance image quality even in less-than-ideal conditions.

Key Advantages of SwiftMR™

  • Improved Image Quality: Utilizes deep learning engines trained on high-quality images to enhance lower-quality scans.
  • Efficient Integration: Communicates directly with the institution’s PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), allowing for quick and seamless installation, boosting the performance of the entire MRI fleet.
  • Broad Adoption: Since its launch in July, SwiftMR™ has been implemented in numerous institutions across Korea, scanning over 4,000 patients without any downtime.

Radiologists have praised the enhanced images produced by SwiftMR™, with the software receiving positive feedback both domestically and internationally. “Our focus on meeting the needs of experienced radiologists has been crucial in advancing our technology to a clinically acceptable level,” said Jingu Lee, CEO of AIRS Medical. “SwiftMR™ has the potential to significantly reduce scan and wait times, making medical imaging services more accessible globally.”

Upcoming Showcase

AIRS Medical will debut SwiftMR™ to the U.S. market at RSNA 2021. Dr. Jongho Lee, Professor at Seoul National University and scientific advisor to AIRS Medical, will present on the practical applications of SwiftMR™ in real-world settings.
