Bone Suppression image enhancement

Bone Suppression image enhancement technology

Philips Bone Suppression image enhancement technology uses AI to suppress bones on digital adult erect chest X-ray images, creating both a conventional image and an unobstructed soft tissue image with a single exposure. Bone Suppression is fully integrated into the Eleva workflow.

Features

Clinical Image of Bone Suppression

Confident interpretation


By providing a soft tissue image in addition to a conventional chest image, Bone Suppression provides decision-making support without the need for additional X-ray dose or time. With Bone Suppression, actionable lung nodule detection is improved up to 16.8%. [1]

Clinical Image of Bone Suppression

Efficient workflow


Bone Suppression does not require an additional procedure, add to examination time or require additional equipment. Depending on the protocol, for each adult erect chest PA/AP image a bone-suppressed image can be automatically generated and sent to PACS in addition to the conventional image. Both the conventional and the bone-suppressed image can be accessed and reviewed at the PACS viewing station at any time.
