Zebra Medical Vision, which is developing machine learning imaging analytics software, is launching Profound, a new service designed to help people receive fast medical image analysis over the web. With Profound, users upload their medical imaging scans such as CTs and Mammograms to Zebra’s online service, and receive an automated analysis for key clinical conditions.
“Profound can help alleviate some of the anxiety involved by providing a second opinion for certain scans, or discovering key findings which were overlooked in others,” Elad Benjamin, co-founder and CEO of Zebra Medical Vision, said in a statement.
The service will allow users from Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Latin America to receive analysis highlighting the presence of the following conditions: Osteoporosis, Compression Fractures, Fatty Liver, Coronary Calcium, Emphysema, and Aortic Aneurysms. Additional algorithms, such as analysis of mammograms, will be added in the near future.
“Our analysis does not replace a physician or a proper medical examination. We urge anyone who is suspicious in any way of their health condition to seek professional medical advice,” Mr. Benjamin added. “But with Profound, we hope to empower users to better manage and understand their health, promoting a better discourse with their physicians, which will lead to better care for everyone.”
