Company description

RaPID Medical Technologies is a healthcare based technology start-up focusing on patient safety. Using machine learning and pattern matching algorithms, RaPID Medical Technologies has developed computer-assisted detection (CADe) software that efficiently detects retained surgical items (RSIs) in radiological images. RSI is any surgical sponge, needle, or instrument inadvertently left behind in a patient’s body in the course of surgery. In 2013 RSIs were the second most commonly reported sentinel event in the US. RaPID's RSI CADe is faster (near instantaneous), has a superior detection rate (99%), and may be integrated with existing counting methods to optimize RSI detection.
