The American Medical Association (AMA) has taken a significant step in facilitating reimbursement for icometrix’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quantification software. They have issued a Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) III code specifically for the use of icometrix’s innovative AI software.
This groundbreaking development marks the first CPT III code issued for adjunctive AI quantification of brain MRI scans. icometrix, known for its five FDA-cleared AI software applications for brain MRI and computed tomography (CT), welcomes this recognition as a potential path for reimbursement.
The recognition of icometrix’s AI software by the AMA is especially noteworthy for the field of precision medicine in neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis (MS). Tim Coetzee, PhD, Chief Advocacy, Services, and Science Officer at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, emphasizes the importance of precision medicine in improving treatment outcomes for neurological conditions. The AMA’s recognition of icometrix’s innovative technology creates an opportunity for its integration into the management of MS, bringing us closer to a future where precision medicine guides treatment decisions.
Among icometrix’s AI software applications is Icobrain ms, which enables objective quantification and tracking of white matter hyperintensities on FLAIR, TI MRI, and contrast-enhanced T1 MRI scans. This software, along with icometrix’s portfolio of AI-enabled neuroimaging software, plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and assessment of various conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, epilepsy, and MS.
With the issuance of the CPT III code, icometrix’s AI-powered brain MRI quantification software gains recognition and opens new possibilities for healthcare providers to utilize the benefits of AI in diagnosing and treating neurological conditions. This significant milestone reinforces icometrix’s commitment to advancing precision medicine and transforming patient care through cutting-edge AI technology.
