Organization Description:
To democratize access to TB diagnosis by providing low-cost automated algorithms for analyzing chest X-rays. We are a medical image analysis company working primarily with medical device manufacturers to bring state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to market. We became interested in TB because it's a disease that could be treated early if there was wider access to low-cost diagnostics. As a company we are interested in providing diagnostic solutions in underserved areas with limited access to radiologists. We have already signed agreements screening >500,000 patients in Southern Africa.
