Zebra Medical Vision, the leading deep learning imaging analytics company, is announcing AI1: a new suite that offers all its current and future algorithms to healthcare providers globally for $1 USD per scan.
This is another step in the company’s quest to provide high quality, affordable care to the world’s population. A pioneer in the field of machine and deep learning for medical imaging, Zebra-Med is driving unprecedented transparency in its business model to encourage faster global adoption of advanced tools that can improve health.
Over the last two decades, the demand for imaging services has been increasing, outpacing the supply of qualified physicians, stretching providers and radiologists to constantly produce more output, without compromising patient care. With 2 Billion people expected to join the middle class in the next decade a crisis is imminent. Only by adopting new technology that can significantly enhance the capabilities of radiologists, can this be mitigated. Automated Imaging Analytics tools such as Zebra-med’s Deep Learning engine will provide the needed clinical and computational horsepower to allow radiologists to make the next leap in patient care.
Using millions of longitudinal high quality imaging scans , Zebra-med has been developing a deep learning engine that can automatically detect various medical findings in imaging scans. Current capabilities include automatic detection of liver, lung, cardiovascular and bone disease, and new capabilities are constantly being released – covering breast cancer, lung cancer, brain trauma, hypertension, and other clinical areas. Zebra’s findings are integrated into PACS and RIS systems, allowing radiologists to seamlessly include them in their reading and reporting workflow. This automated assistance contributes to more comprehensive, quantitative and consistent reporting, improving the output of radiologists and contributing to overall improved patient care. The company’s analytics engine is deployed at over 50 hospitals globally, and has analyzed more than 1M patient scans to date.
“With this new model, we hope to facilitate adoption globally, especially in countries where access to radiology is difficult,” says Elad Benjamin, Co-founder and CEO of Zebra Medical Vision. “We are making a commitment to provide our current tools, and all future ones, for a flat $1 USD per scan. By doing so we believe that a true difference can be made in the provision of radiology services worldwide.”
