Aidoc has collaborated with Belgium-based University Hospital Brussels (UZ Brussel) for the expedited treatment of pulmonary embolism (PE) with artificial intelligence (AI).
The company will work with UZ Brussel’s Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) to deploy AI for cross-departmental care coordination to expedite treatment for suspected PE patients.
Aidoc automatically identifies suspected positive PE cases and sends an automatic alert to PERT, facilitating quick decision-making and the delivery of treatment.
Aidoc’s always-on AI system is already in use at UZ Brussel, evaluating chest CT exams for PE and giving priority to potential positive cases within the radiology workflow.
When Aidoc’s AI detects a suspected acute PE case, the PERT team, which includes an interventional radiologist, pulmonologist, cardiologist, and intensivist, are alerted through Aidoc’s mobile app.
The notification contains images and clinical data, including the right ventricle-to-left ventricle ratio, which is a crucial adverse outcomes predictor in acute PE.

Aidoc’s advanced operating system, the Aidoc aiOS, automates every stage of the imaging process, from acquisition and algorithm activation, to care escalation.
Aidoc Europe Sales and Innovation RVP Jeremy De Sy said: “As our first partner in Europe, UZ Brussel is no stranger to AI; they were the first to implement our entire suite of radiology AI solutions and now they are the very first hospital in Europe to deploy AI across service lines to manage and treat acute PE patients.
“This innovative approach not only enhances patient care, but also sets the stage for a promising future of AI-driven healthcare across Europe.”
