The clinical impact of an artificial intelligence tool on the turnaround time of patients with suspected intracranial hemorrhage

Materials & Methods

The artificial intelligence software platform was installed on CT scanners in two imaging sites across the health system. The software prospectively evaluated all CT head without contrast studies performed at these sites beginning Jan. 1, 2018. Turnaround time (TAT) was obtained for all imaging cases performed in emergency departments across the health system between Jan. 2018 and June 2018 and compared to imaging cases performed between July 2017 and December 2017. 26,249 cases were evaluated in 2017 and 25,544 cases in 2018.


TAT decreased from 53 minutes to 46 minutes for positive cases (p<.001).


The clinical use of an AI platform detecting intracranial hemorrhage showed a decrease in TAT, indicating rapid triage of these patients to appropriate care.
