Caption Care is powered by the first FDA cleared AI-guided imaging acquisition software from Caption Health. This breakthrough technology enables more healthcare providers to perform high-quality ultrasound exams wherever and whenever patients need them — regardless of their familiarity with ultrasound.
Ultrasound is a safe, highly effective diagnostic tool — but it can be difficult to master, takes years of specialized training to learn, and image quality can vary.
Performing the exam involves unnatural hand-eye coordination and unintuitive visuals. Traditional ultrasound software doesn’t provide instruction on how to move the ultrasound transducer to capture an image, or any real-time feedback on the quality of images being captured. Poor quality images lead to missed opportunities, misdiagnosis, repeat studies, and inconsistent interpretation.
As a result, the true value and benefits of ultrasound have not been fully realized.
Now, with Caption AI, any healthcare professional can capture diagnostic-quality ultrasound images thanks to AI guiding them through every step of the scanning and image-capture process in real time. The software also automatically assesses image quality and calculates ejection fraction, a key measure of heart health.
The Quality Meter shows users in real time how close they are to capturing a diagnostic-quality ultrasound image. The meter rises as the user gets closer to the optimal view, turning green when the image is deemed diagnostic. AutoCapture then records the clip, hands-free.
Caption Guidance emulates the expertise of a sonographer by providing real-time guidance that prompts users to make specific transducer movements to optimize and capture a diagnostic-quality ultrasound image.
Caption Interpretation automatically calculates ejection fraction while scanning from any combination of up to three cardiac views: apical 4-chamber (AP4), apical 2-chamber (AP2), and—an industry first—parasternal long-axis (PLAX).
Users have the flexibility to create and follow a customizable indication-based or workflow-based protocol of ultrasound views. While scanning, users can easily skip to the view they need.
Begin every exam with a probe positioning diagram indicating where to place the ultrasound transducer. A reference image provides a visual example of what to look for while scanning.
The software continuously keeps track of the best images seen during each scanning session so the highest-quality image from each view is automatically captured. Users have the freedom to explore each view with the reassurance that they can always access the best two-second clip from their scan at the touch of a button.
