Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center adopted Encord to build custom label protocols for pulmonary thrombosis projects.


Detecting and classifying vena cava filters in complex label protocols (ontologies) rendered existing & open-source tools unusable.


Deployed Encord's label protocol studio to build custom protocols, DICOM annotation tool, worklists & automation modules to increase efficiency.


Project was made feasible by the flexibility offered by Encord's ontology study.

  • 1000+ protocol configurations
  • 10 minutes total setup time
  • 100% auditable
    Collaborative DICOM annotation platform for medical imaging
    CT, X-ray, mammography, MRI, PET scans, ultrasound
