ISRAEL – Zebra Medical Vision has launched a web-based service that allows patients to receive fast, accurate medical image analysis.
The service, Profound, allows people to upload their medical imaging scans to Zebra’s online service and receive an automated analysis for key clinical conditions.
“Undergoing an imaging scan such as a CT or a mammogram is stressful for many people, often compounded by a long wait for results,” said Elad Benjamin, co-founder and CEO of Zebra. “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.”
Users can receive analysis highlighting the presence of conditions including: osteoporosis, compression fractures, fatty liver, coronary calcium, emphysema and aortic aneurysms. Additional algorithms will be added soon.
“Our analysis does not replace a physician or a proper medical evaluation,” said Benjamin. “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.”
Profound has launched in Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Latin America.
