Intelligent Ultrasound Group PLC (LON:MED) is providing doctors with a live demonstration of AI software designed to help anaesthetists.

ScanNav AnatomyGuide identifies and highlights anatomical structures on a live ultrasound image and is being developed to help less experience medics administer peripheral nerve block procedures.

PNB is a form of regional anaesthesia that can be used for certain surgical procedures. It is also being developed as a form of pain relief.

The demonstration, at the Annual Scientific Meeting of Regional Anaesthesia, will focus on two of these nerve blocks: the adductor canal block, which is in the thigh area, and the fascia iliaca block (the pelvis and hip area).

"The benefits of regional anaesthesia to patients and to the health service generally are well known,” said chief executive Nicholas Sleep.

“We believe that ScanNav AnatomyGuide will provide additional confidence for practitioners with less experience in ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia, reduce their reliance on more senior colleagues, and allow a greater number of patients to benefit from PNB procedures."
