AI Startup Zebra Medical Vision Enlists Deep Learning To Save Lives

  • For the last 5 years, Zebra has helped doctors make the right decisions by developing deep learning algorithms for interpretation of medical images, working with data and research partners to train and improve the algorithms and validate their efficacy, and integrating Zebra's products with the workflow of practicing radiologists.
  • Gura's vision is that Zebra will help "automate every visual aspect of medicine," going beyond radiology to pathology, dermatology, dentistry, and to all situations where "a doctor or a nurse are staring at an image and need to make a quick decision.
  • So far, Zebra has developed 48 algorithms addressing 48 different medical conditions (8 have already received regulatory approval in Europe and one in the US) that assist radiologists at different points in time, from acute conditions to current diseases to preventive medicine based on past scans.
  • Earlier this year, Zebra announced the first multi-modality AI triage solution , addressing two life-threatening conditions, brain-bleeds and pneumothorax (the presence of gas between the lung and the chest wall).
  • At the other end of the timescale, Zebra's algorithms can help in reviewing past scans, identifying patients at-risk and assisting in population health management.
