Fremont, CA: In order to determine a patient's health and course of treatment, the diagnosis process collects data and performs a complex analysis. The most important aspect of health care is an accurate diagnosis. Diagnostic imaging is used to help determine a patient's path to therapeutics or surgery.
Medo, a technology startup and global leader in using artificial intelligence (AI) to dramatically simplify ultrasound in healthcare, and Medical Imaging Consultants (MIC), Western Canada's leading radiology partnership, are excited to announce a collaboration aimed at revolutionizing diagnostic imaging.
Medo, founded in 2018, is committed to bringing medical imaging to everyone when and where they need it most, thereby impacting billions of lives. Dornoosh Zonoobi, Medo's CEO describes the company's founding as "the realization that ultrasound as a modality is affordable, non-invasive, and portable. Because of this, it has the potential to truly scale into the hands of every caregiver. But despite all of ultrasound's promise, it is incredibly hard to use - even for expert users. We saw an opportunity to change this by using cutting-edge artificial intelligence to bridge this usability gap
enabling novice users while at the same time making expert ultrasound users like those at MIC more proficient and accurate in making common and critical diagnosis." Medo has raised several rounds of investment in the three years since its founding, built multiple FDA-cleared products that dramatically simplify the use of ultrasound, and deployed its products to hospitals, clinics, and imaging partners all over the world.
MIC, meanwhile, has been Western Canada's leading imaging partnership for the last 25 years. Ron Van Vliet, CEO at MIC stated, "MIC radiologists and staff are dedicated to optimizing results and enhancing the experience of patients who choose MIC for diagnostic imaging services. To maintain our position as their imaging provider of choice we are constantly looking for ways to provide services more efficiently, often by leveraging the latest technologies available. Our partnership with Medo allows us to explore and aid in the development of artificial intelligence applications that enhance our ultrasound services, providing more consistent imaging with reduced errors, while improving the efficiency of our sonographers and radiologists."
