MVision AI and Institut de Cancérologie de Lorraine (ICL, Nancy) announce the first installation of unique Guide and Verify solutions for cancer treatment in France

HELSINKI, Finland – November 24, 2023

Institut de Cancérologie de Lorraine (ICL) in Nancy (France) has been a MVision AI customer since the installation of Contour+ in January 2023. This year, the values of using Guideline-Based AI Segmentation in daily practice have been prominently featured in several French media outlets [1], thanks to the efforts of Dr. Jean Christophe Faivre, head of the radiation oncology department. In fact, France Bleu even compared the results of using Contour+ to a small revolution in radiotherapy treatment.

Clinicians have particularly emphasized the accuracy and time-saving benefits, which allow for more time to be allocated to patient care and target identification.

The accuracy of organ-at-risk (OAR) contouring can significantly influence cancer treatment planning. Contour+, powered by AI, not only assists us in contouring these critical organs to protect them but also enables us to achieve much greater precision while saving time“, says Dr. Jean Christophe Faivre.

Today we manually outline ten to fifteen patients a day, with Contour+, the medical team can easily handle twenty to thirty. This allows us to create much finer and more personalized irradiation plans, ultimately benefiting the patients. The tool is also invaluable in mitigating the current shortage of healthcare professionals in French hospitals. Our team eagerly anticipates future developments with AI“.

ICL is upfront in using artificial intelligence for cancer patients care and we are proud to reach the next steps in the near future by providing MVision AI Guide & Verify web workspaces designed to support clinical teams in the adoption of responsible AI with contour comparison and standardization towards guidelines.
