Bone Suppression image enhancement technology

Philips Bone Suppression image enhancement technology uses AI to suppress bones on digital adult erect chest X-ray images, creating both a conventional image and an unobstructed soft tissue image with a single exposure. Bone Suppression is fully integrated into the Eleva workflow.

Confident interpretation

By providing a soft tissue image in addition to a conventional chest image, Bone Suppression provides decision-making support without the need for additional X-ray dose or time. With Bone Suppression, actionable lung nodule detection is improved up to 16.8%. [1]

Efficient workflow

Bone Suppression does not require an additional procedure, add to examination time or require additional equipment. Depending on the protocol, for each adult erect chest PA/AP image a bone-suppressed image can be automatically generated and sent to PACS in addition to the conventional image. Both the conventional and the bone-suppressed image can be accessed and reviewed at the PACS viewing station at any time.
