Vetel Diagnostics Artificially Intelligent Software Provides Automatic Measurements and Reporting for Norberg Hip Angle

San Luis Obispo, California – Vetel Diagnostics and the Vetel Group of companies continues to develop new diagnostic software for the technological advancement of veterinarians everywhere. Exclusively from Vetel comes the automatic measurement and reporting of the canine Norberg Hip Angle (NHA).

The NHA is the angle between the center of the head of the femur and the edge of the acetabulum measured in canine hip joints. The measurement of this angle provides a metric of the depth of the hip socket, and thus an indicator of risk for hip disease and dysplasia.

The manual measurement and reporting of the NHA is usually done at the expense of the attending veterinarians time making it difficult to report routinely in daily clinical practice.

Metron™ with Intellect Module is Vetel’s exclusive artificially intelligent (AI) software which utilizes deep learning-neural networks that mimic the human brain’s ability to learn. This allows the program to continuously learn and further refine its accuracy and speed. The result is software that is “superhuman” when it comes to performing certain tasks with greater precision and efficiency than that of a person. The NHA measurement in canines is the latest release, referred to as an “IQ Update”,  in the series of AI-powered advancements in the Metron software platform.

The automated development of the NHA lays another important milestone in the path the veterinary industry is building towards the utilization of technology to further benefit veterinarians, patients, and their owners. One of Vetel Diagnostics missions is to continue building towards a future where veterinarians use AI software daily to quickly and accurately collect the diagnostic information they need to plan and execute superior treatment plans for the betterment of their patients.
