The partnership aims to expand the analysis capabilities of Konica Minolta's Exa Cardio PACS Platform (Cardiovascular Information System) with DiA's cardiac analysis, "LVivo Toolbox."

DiA's LVivo Cardiac Toolbox uses AI-based technology to analyze cardiac ultrasound images automatically and objectively, to reduce the subjectivity of manual or visual analysis methods used today. The LVivo Cardiac Toolbox uses novel pattern recognition, deep-learning and machine-learning algorithms that automatically imitate how the human eye detects borders and motion. DiA's LVivo Cardiac Toolbox is vendor-neutral, supporting DICOM clips of various ultrasound systems.

Konica Minolta's Exa platform provides hospitals and imaging centers with the ability to view DICOM and non-DICOM images and information across departments and facilities, regardless of the original source. Exa also provides a vendor-neutral centralized archive and image exchange. Konica Minolta will offer the LVivo Toolbox as a part of Exa's diagnostic-quality Zero Footprint, Server Side Rendering Universal Viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images. The integration has been designed according to Exa's user interface to assure efficient workflow and accessibility to all Exa Cardio PACS users.

"With DiA's LVivo Toolbox, Konica Minolta offers clinicians decision support with objective data," said Andrew Horning, Konica Minolta's Cardiology Product Manager. "Through this partnership, we integrate innovative, AI-based cardiac analysis into Exa's already powerful and user-customizable structured reporting system; all available anywhere - from a multi-monitor workstation on a hospital network, to a laptop PC on Wi-Fi. This helps cardiologists make better decisions sooner."

"We are excited to partner with Konica and offer the LVivo Cardiac Toolbox to Exa Cardio PACS users," said Hila Goldman Aslan, DiA's CEO and Co-Founder. "Konica Minolta is a world leader in providing innovative, state-of-the-art healthcare solutions to its customers. With LVivo Toolbox offered as a part of Exa Cardio PACS, Konica's users will be able to get fast, valuable and objective insights into cardiac function analysis. Our mission is to support clinicians with various cardiac analysis experience levels, in their decision-making process and to use our solutions as part of their everyday analysis routine."
