Automated Bone Scan Index 

The automated Bone Scan Index (aBSI) technology, developed by EXINI Diagnostics AB, gives a fully quantitative assessment of bone scans that incorporates inferred masses of all lesions. The computed index reflects the proportion of the total skeleton mass that is observed to have tumor involvement1. In a prospectively defined multi-institutional phase 3 study with 721 metastatic prostate cancer patients, aBSI was found to be an independent prognostic determinant of overall survival and the study supported using aBSI in the design and eligibility for clinical trials for systemic therapies for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer2. 


As of 2017, aBSI is provided as a secure and compliant web application readily available from a web browser by logging in to, www.bonescanindex.com.  In Europe, the device is CE-marked according to MDD 93/42 EEC, and is available for clinical use in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, UK.

EXINI Diagnostics AB

EXINI Diagnostics AB was established in 1999 to commercialize AI methods for automated analysis of diagnostic images developed by a research group at Lund University. As a certified medical device manufacturer, EXINI has developed automated analysis platforms for cardiac, brain and bone scans. The company has always been innovative, developing web-based systems in the early 2000s.

EXINIs most widely distributed platform is used to calculate the automated Bone Scan Index, which quantifies the bone tumor burden in patients with metastatic prostate cancer. This platform has been installed at about 1,000 hospitals worldwide. In 2015, EXINI was acquired by Progenics Pharmaceuticals Inc. for developing patient centric AI technologies for PSMA-targeted theranostic agents.
