Zebra Medical Vision announced the launch of Profound, a service with the potential to help people receive fast, accurate medical image analysis over the internet.
The Israel-based machine learning imaging analytics company's new service will give people the chance to upload scans such as CTs and mammograms to Zebra’s online service and receive an automated analysis for key clinical conditions.
“We are all anxious about our health. Undergoing an imaging scan such as a CT or a mammogram is stressful for many people, often compounded by a long wait for results, with additional follow-up tests and examinations,” said Elad Benjamin, co-founder and Zebra CEO. “Profound can help alleviate some of the anxiety involved by providing a second opition for certain scans, or discovering key findings which were overlook in others.”
Users from Europe, Asia and Latin America will be able to receive analysis highlighting the presence of these conditions:
- Compression fractures
- Fatty liver
- Coronary calcium
- Aortic aneurysms
Benjamin says that the analysis are not to replace a physican or a proper medical examination and he urges patients to follow up with a professional if they are suspicious of their health.
"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," said Benjamin.
