CGI, Helsinki University Hospital and Planmeca have jointly developed an artificial intelligence solution (AI Head Analysis) that assists radiologists in interpreting brain CT scans and detecting the most common types of non-traumatic brain hemorrhages. AI Head Analysis has just officially been approved to be retrospectively tested in clinical workflow in Helsinki University Hospital and allows an easy-to-use test environment also for other hospitals around the world.
Why to contribute?
The research project opens a low-threshold, easy-to-use testbed for all the interested hospitals around the world to contribute to the project and to test the algorithm platform. The solution is independent of any patient data or systems managed by a particular hospital and may also be used to advance the development of other AI-based healthcare solutions in the future.

Independent testing and validation of the solution has so far been conducted by several hospitals, including one of the largest university hospitals in Switzerland. Neurology, one of the world’s leading medical journals, recently published an article on these AI-based diagnostics.
Why AI Head Analysis?
The significance of brain disorders and their treatment will increase as the population ages all around the world. Each year, millions of people across the globe are diagnosed with some type of brain hemorrhage and this number is increasing year by year while the number of radiologists is decreasing.
Further, interpreting head CT scans requires time and experience, but most emergency clinics are very busy. Since brain hemorrhage is a sudden and extremely serious illness, this project can affect the life-expectancy and survival rate of cerebral hemorrhage patients.
“The AI Head Analysis is a highly unique and innovative solution that may help save many lives in the future from a condition that is both challenging to detect and treat. The solution also demonstrates how CGI is committed to using its expertise and the power of technology to improve the well-being of communities and citizens,” said Leena-Mari Lähteenmaa, President of CGI’s operations in Finland.
The collaboration in this research and innovation ecosystem, called CleverHealth Network, is a part of CGI's Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy. More information about CleverHealth Network can be found here: CleverHealth Network - Head area imaging analytics.
