Latest stroke care technology available at King’s Daughters

King’s Daughters is now offering the latest artificial intelligence (AI) software from to help patients suffering from stroke receive treatment more quickly and improve outcomes.

The software analyzes brain scans to identify strokes, and then sends the images directly to physicians on their mobile devices. They can then use the HIPAA-compliant software to consult with each other in real time, similar to texting, to make treatment decisions and determine the best course of action.

Stroke will affect one out of every four people and is a leading cause of disability in the United States. When it comes to treatment, response time is crucial because about 2 million brain cells can die every minute during a stroke. has been proven to reduce response times, potentially saving critical minutes, or even hours, in the triage, diagnosis and treatment of strokes. In fact, studies have shown that this technology saves an average of 66 minutes in response time.

“The software provides cutting edge technology to our patients in order to speed diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke,” interventional radiologist Wes Lewis, M.D., said. “The goal is to shorten our ‘door-to-needle’ time. Getting a patient into treatment quickly, such as for a thrombectomy to physically remove the blood clot, is essential while oxygen is being blocked from the brain.”
