Not all images are taken in an X-ray room, with the detector in a bucky. Whether at the bedside or in the X-ray room, the detector can be upside down, oriented in portrait or landscape mode, etc. The resulting image then has to be adjusted to the correct orientation with an additional manual action.
SmartRotate always presents the image ready for viewing, automatically. It uses a Deep Neural Net to interpret the image contents, and then rotates the image accordingly. By reducing postprocessing actions, the radiographer saves time and can focus on imaging, not rotating. This also ensures the images are consistently presented on the PACS, allowing better comparison with priors.
