MDW blockchain platform announces AI algorithm marketplace

Nov. 28, 2018

MDW—Medical Diagnostic Web—introduced its medical imaging blockchain platform an artificial intelligence (AI) marketplace that enables radiologists to preview and purchase verifiable algorithms to enhance their practices. MDW will help AI vendors drive adoption of their technologies by providing a framework to allow radiology professionals to standardize evaluation of these algorithms. Imaging centers and hospitals will be able to conduct detailed searches for AI technology that meets their needs and access appropriate algorithms.

MDW debuted its blockchain platform this fall as the first radiology offering designed to connect all players in the diagnostic digital imaging ecosystem to create an open, transparent and fair marketplace. Imaging facilities that employ the MDW platform own massive volumes of imaging data. The MDW platform enables them to monetize this data by making it available to AI product vendors in a form of anonymized, annotated datasets for algorithm training and verification.

With its open, decentralized infrastructure, encrypted data transmission and immutable audit trails, the MDW blockchain platform also enables individual radiologists and radiology groups to forge new business relationships and benefit from immediate compensation for services rendered. Radiology service organizations can take advantage of as-needed resources to transact with new clients, boost reading volume and decrease exam turn-around-time.

Visit MDW at RSNA booth 3972, South Hall.
