A Vision to Transform Medical X-ray Imaging

Our world-class team of scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and business professionals has been dedicated to developing innovative medical X-ray imaging software since 2014.

We are all focused on one goal: to apply advanced physics modelling, statistics and AI methods to extract the maximum amount of useful diagnostic information from every single X-ray.

A vision to improve patient lives through earlier and more accurate diagnosis and to improve efficiency and reduce costs for health care providers everywhere.
