Press Release: Nordic Medtech partners with Subtle Medical

 Nordic Medtech partners with Subtle Medical to improve medical imaging with AI-powered technology. 

The partnership aims to provide faster and safer PET imaging across Nordic and Baltic countries. 

Järved, Sweden – January 26, 2021 – Nordic Medtech announced today that they have partnered with Subtle Medical, a U.S based healthcare technology company, to distribute the company’s artificial intelligence (AI)-based software solution for faster and safer medical imaging. 

Subtle Medical’s software solution, SubtlePET™, uses proprietary deep learning algorithms to denoise low count PET images from lower FDG dose and faster scan times. Centers have used SubtlePET to achieve 75% faster and/or lower dose PET scans while maintaining high quality diagnostic images. The solution offers a broad range of benefits including faster scan times, lower radiation dose, improved image quality, higher scanner efficiency, and positive impacts on workflow and patient experience. 

With current wait times for a PET scan ranging between 3-4 weeks, Nordic Medtech aims to make faster PET exams more accessible in hopes to reduce the wait time for patients. SubtlePET works on all scanner brands and integrates seamlessly with any PET scanner and PACS with little alteration to existing workflows. 

The distribution agreement covers the countries of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and associated geographies. SubtlePET is CE Certified and FDA Cleared. 

“Our goal is to not only make medical imaging safer and more focused on the patient, but also help imaging institutions and radiologists achieve higher quality imaging while running a more efficient operation. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with Nordic Medtech and are excited to expand our technology to new Nordic and Baltic regions,” said Dr. Enhao Gong, Founder & CEO, Subtle Medical

Pierre Vestman, CEO and Co-founder, Nordic Medtech AB, added, “We are excited to partner with Subtle Medical and are certain that this will be one step further in our quest to help our customers in their clinical daily routine. With the ability to achieve faster and lower dose PET scans, centres can improve workflow and patient comfort. This is truly a game changer and we are proud to be a part of this mission.”
