Medtronic and NVIDIA Announce Medical Device Collaboration

As part of NVIDIA’s GTC 2023 conference, the cross-industry metaverse and AI-focused company announced multiple AI-driven partnerships to advance medical devices and medical imaging, Including a partnership with Medtronic, the world’s largest healthcare technology provider.


Medtronic and NVIDIA announce that they are collaborating to accelerate the development of AI in healthcare systems and will New AI-based solutions introduced to patient care.

Integration with NVIDIA Holoscan — a real-time AI computing software platform that processes real-time data at the edge of the design NVIDIA IGX (Industrial-Grade Edge AI Hardware Platform) will deliver Medtronic’s GI Genius smart endoscopy module by the end of this year. )

Medtronic’s AI-assisted colonoscopy tool has been approved by the FDA to help doctors detect polyps that can lead to colorectal cancer. According to NVIDIA’s announcement, the GI Genius integration could support physicians using AI-enhanced diagnostic images to improve colonoscopy and patient outcomes.

Holoscan enables medical devices to deliver the low-latency inference required by AI in clinical settings.

“Artificial intelligence is a powerful tool that can improve the speed, efficiency and effectiveness of health systems around the world,” said Kimberly Powell, vice president of healthcare at NVIDIA, in yesterday’s announcement.

“We are collaborating with Medtronic to accelerate AI innovation by enabling software-defined business models with the goal of improving clinical decision-making, reducing healthcare variability and driving better patient outcomes,” she says.

Additional integration with Holoscan and IGX allows developers to train and validate AI models, then host AI-driven applications on Medtronic’s GI Genius AI Access Platform, a marketplace software Namely, medical device applications.

Assisting robotic surgery and advancing medical images

NVIDIA says Holoscan was also recently used in an operating room at the ORSI Academy surgical training center in Belgium, to support robot-assisted surgery. The patient’s kidney was treated using Intuitive’s da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery system with an augmented reality overlay of CT scans of the patient’s anatomy, rendered in real-time and artificial intelligence-enhanced using Holoscan,” the company said in a separate statement.

Zinnov CEO Pari Natarajan said: “The Metaverse has the power to transform healthcare in multiple ways. It allows people across industries and geographies to collaborate seamlessly for knowledge sharing and collaboration. “, a global management and consulting firm focused on the digital transformation of healthcare.

“Using robotics and augmented reality, it will be very easy for healthcare professionals around the world to assist in critical procedures,” He told HealthcareITNews last month.

NVIDIA’s Clara ecosystem, which also includes MONAI for Genomics and MONAI for Medical Imaging are being used by more than 100 partners, according to BioNeMo, Parabricks NVIDIA.

MONAI helps create software that can label and analyze medical images Healthcare AI applications.

NVIDIA also noted that Flywheel, a biomedical research data platform, is incorporating MONAI into its products. image classifier for predicting and labeling body regions present in medical images.
