A Study to Evaluate an AI Algorithm for Segmenting Adipose and Skeletal Muscle in Abdominal Imaging


About this study

The purpose of this study is to determine if the AI generated results are less arduous than manual tracing by radiologists, and to determine the non-inferiority of the quality of AI vs manual tracing.  These aims will be evaluated in a clinical environment to investigate the impact of an AI algorithm on the clinical workflow.
