SSHC announces partnership with CARPL.AI


CoLumbo, an advanced AI solution to the study of Lumbar Spine MRI, is now available via the CARPL platform.


CoLumbo announced today that the Lumbar Spine MRI AI solution has been onboarded onto the CARPL platform. is the end-to-end development, deployment, and validation platform for healthcare AI across multiple body parts and modalities effectively connecting healthcare providers with cutting-edge AI solutions like CoLumbo. Further, healthcare providers are offered a one-stop platform for the exploration, discovery, and validation of medical imaging solutions, leading to the confident integration of these solutions.

The CE mark and FDA Quality System regulated solution reads, segments, measures and classifies MRI images to provide suspected pathology descriptions, findings and measurements with pre-populated structured or free text reports. It is cleared for clinical use in Europe and the USA. 

By onboarding CoLumbo onto its platform, CARPL eases the access, assessment, and adoption of AI solutions on one platform, enabling radiologists to reduce the reading and reporting time, increase accuracy and standardize reading.
