In order to support the continuous development and management of the operational challenges of its centers, IMDEV relies on an experienced central team. This team supports doctors in their operational and strategic matters, whether short-term or long-term; this with the aim of accelerating territorial development and giving comfort and support to radiologists.
This team works on all types of subjects, in a “service on demand” logic for doctors: management of strategic projects such as those relating to future modalities, management of IT and network projects, recruitment assistance, planning assistance, service legal and financial, etc. This dedicated team provides a good understanding of the numerous - and often complex - subjects impacting the field of medical imaging.
Many radiologists have joined its ranks in order to benefit from the strength of a national network. Several factors can explain this:
Artificial intelligence (AI) represents a major breakthrough in the field of medical imaging, and IMDEV fully recognizes its potential as an additional tool to support radiologists in their diagnostic interpretation. As a user of promising solutions, IMDEV has established partnerships with developers in order to develop and optimize these technologies.
At the heart of these notable collaborations, IMDEV notably uses Gleamer to detect fractures that are difficult to observe during trauma, and uses Therapixel software to screen for subtle lesions during mammograms. At the same time, IMDEV supports start-ups in the development of algorithms for the detection of endometriosis and prostate cancers on MRIs. Thanks to these innovative solutions, IMDEV puts the power of AI at the service of healthcare professionals, as an aid, an additional tool increasing the efficiency and accuracy of diagnoses.
3 major challenges are needed for the future of medical imaging and the IMDEV group, which remains resolutely committed to shaping the future of this sector.
We find in particular an important human and generational issue, with the need to ensure the availability of radiologists throughout the territory and to attract younger generations to stimulating medical and territorial projects.
The economic challenge requires continuous investments to modernize medicine and maintain high quality standards. IMDEV is firmly committed to financing this modernization and remaining at the forefront of medical imaging technology.
Finally, the technological issue is key in this constantly innovating field. IMDEV takes a proactive approach by actively selecting and integrating emerging technologies.
