ThinkSono enables nurses to detect DVT without the help of a radiologist, shortening the time to diagnosis and the clinical pathway while improving patients' outcomes.

Software to help diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis

PROBLEM

DVT is the formation of a blood clot in a vein, most commonly in the legs or pelvis. It is potentially life-threatening as it can lead to pulmonary embolism (PE) when one or more clots detach and travel to the lungs. These conditions are not only considered to be the leading causes of preventable hospital deaths in the Western world but also enormously costly.

SOLUTION

Using ultrasound is not possible for the vast majority of healthcare professionals but restricted to very few specialists. ThinkSono’s AI-powered Auto-DVT solution is able to guide any caretaker to detect DVT in under 10 minutes. It shortens the clinical pathway and reduces unnecessary use of drugs and ultimately cuts the costs of a diagnosis by a factor of 10.
