Table 1 Overview of commercially available software applications for automated and semi-automated medical image analysis for acute stroke diagnostics (Descriptions are based on information provided by the companies on their official websites. Some companies also offer algorithm outside the ischemic stroke field; we listed them for completion but do not further discuss those)

From: Computer-aided imaging analysis in acute ischemic stroke – background and clinical applications

Company Software Description
Aidoc Aidoc Head triages stroke patients using non-contrast CT scans by flagging suspected intracranial haemorrhages and highlights cases that require immediate attention in worklist
Apollo Medical Imaging Technology CT Perfusion: Stroke CTP stroke module is a part of MIStar software package. It generates brain perfusion maps using deconvolution algorithms together with Apollo’s noise reduction and motion artefact correction technologies
DSC-MRI: Stroke DSC-MRI perfusion module is a part of MIStar software. It features both parametric curve analysis and deconvolution algorithm for perfusion maps with easy identification of arterial input function
Brainomix e-ASPECTS assess the ASPECTSa score and volume of ischemia in non-contrast CT images
e-CTA standardizes the assessment of collaterals in CTA scans
inferVISION AI-CT (head) gets information about type of stroke (haemorrhagic or ischemic), determines location, volume and severity of haemorrhagic strokes
iSchemaView RAPID CTA automatically provides CTA maps and identifies brain regions with reduced blood vessel density
RAPID CTP provides cerebral perfusion maps
RAPID MRI provides fully automated diffusion and perfusion maps
RAPID ASPECTS automatically identifies and scores regions with early ischemic changes using ASPECTS
