Paige has leveraged the world’s largest dataset in pathology to develop an AI pathology system of clinical-grade accuracy
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the North American AI-based digital pathology market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Paige with the 2020 North American Enabling Technology Leadership Award for its disruptive Paige.ai module.
Paige has developed clinical-grade, robust machine learning models for computational pathology for diagnosing cancer subtypes, thereby enhancing the diagnosis capability of pathologists worldwide. Paige’s AI system was tested on approximately 45,000 de-identified, digitized slide images from more than 15,000 cancer patients from 44 countries. The deep learning algorithms detected prostate cancer, skin cancer, and breast cancer with almost 100 percent accuracy.
“Paige’s AI algorithms validated against the world’s largest dataset in pathology makes it the most trustworthy clinical grade pathology diagnosis solution,” said Debarati Sengupta, Industry Analyst, Frost an Sullivan. “This clinical-grade accurate algorithms eliminates the need to curate datasets, which is time-consuming and expensive. Paige’s AI based pathology solution supports pathologists for fast and accurate qualitative, quantitative diagnosis of even the most complex and difficult to interpret slides.”
The Paige modules consist of general and organ-specific modules that provide rapid diagnostic stratification, cancer detection, tumor segmentation, and prediction of treatment response, and overall survival. Its algorithms form clinical decision support products to help pathologists provide better qualitative and quantitative diagnoses. For security purposes, all datasets were de-identified, and any protected health information or label text was removed.
Notably, Paige’s clinical-grade AI pathology system received the Breakthrough Device designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019, making it the first such device for cancer diagnosis. Furthermore, it began commercializing in 2019 following its CE mark approval for Paige Prostate, which is a first-to-market prostate cancer detection solution, and Paige Insight, an AI-based digital pathology viewer for the primary diagnosis of prostate cancer. Paige’s AI-based solutions are vendor agnostic, which helps it serve a wider pool of customers.
In 2020, it formed a strategic partnership with Invicro LLC, a Konica Minolta company to provide its AI-based integrated pathology solutions to support Invicro’s drug discovery and development initiatives. “Paige continues to expand its footprint not just in commercial laboratories, but also biopharmaceutical companies, positioning itself as a pioneer in AI based digital pathology market,” noted Sengupta.
