AI Imaging Metrics and Innovative Workflows for Radiology

Our Story

AI Metrics is a start-up company based in Birmingham, Alabama and founded by radiologist Dr. Andrew Smith.

Our Mission

To leverage artificial intelligence and innovative imaging software solutions to improve workflows, quantitative metrics, and reporting in clinical practice and clinical trials.

Our Vision

Globally transform medical imaging and redefine the standard of care by realizing the full potential of artificial intelligence in imaging metrics.


Current Technology Development

The AI Metrics image viewing platform leverages artificial intelligence and guided workflows to assist radiologists with image analysis and reporting by automatically generating multimedia reports.

Liver Surface Nodularity

CT is used routinely in the diagnosis and management of chronic liver disease. As the disease progresses, bands of liver fibrosis form in reaction to chronic inflammation in the liver, transitioning over time into cirrhosis. With later stages of the disease, these changes in the liver can result in portal hypertension, associated side-effects, and eventually, to death. Improved staging of chronic liver disease is vital to choosing appropriate treatment plans and monitoring response in individual patients.

The appearance of liver surface nodularity on CT images is an important indicator of late-stage fibrosis and cirrhosis*, with increasing nodularity occurring with later stages of the disease. LSN helps standardize the evaluation of nodularity with interactive analysis tools and quantitative metrics, facilitating communications with colleagues and follow-up of a patient over time.

*ACR Appropriateness Criteria for Chronic Liver Disease

Potential Use Cases for LSN:

  • Staging liver fibrosis

  • Predicting clinically significant portal hypertension

  • Substaging cirrhosis

  • Predicting liver decompensation

  • Predicting death from cirrhosis

LSN Features:

  • Launches from OsiriX plugin menu

  • Familiar tools for selecting regions of nodularity

  • Guided workflow for streamlined analysis

  • Semi-automated measurements

  • Encapsulated PDF summary reports

The Liver Surface Nodularity (LSN) software is now available as an OsiriX MD plugin. The LSN plugin may be used with CT images from any scanner or vendor and is validated for a wide range of clinical protocols, including both non-enhanced and contrast-enhanced images.

The OsiriX LSN software is not yet available for clinical use outside of an IRB-approved research protocol. FDA submission is planned for early 2020.

AI Metrics technologies are patent protected.
