KIBBUTZ SHEFAYIM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zebra Medical Vision (http://zebra-med.com/), a leading deep learning imaging analytics company, is announcing that all its current and future radiology algorithms will be enabled on the Google Cloud as part of its new AI1 (https://www.zebra-med.com/aione/) offering to global health providers. A pioneer in the field of machine and deep learning for medical imaging, Zebra-Med is driving transparency in its business model to encourage faster global adoption of advanced tools that can improve health. With over 450 new petabytes per year in imaging data, based on IDC’s health insights 2017, the amount of imaging storage is expected to double in the next 5 years and substantially challenge health providers to keep track of scaling their storage and IT infrastructure , hence the cloud opportunity.
Over the last two decades, the demand for imaging services has been increasing, outpacing the supply of qualified physicians, stretching providers and radiologists to constantly produce more output, without compromising patient care. By adopting new technology, health providers can significantly enhance the capabilities of radiologists and enable better population health management. Automated Imaging Analytics tools such as Zebra-med’s Deep Learning Engine will provide the needed clinical and computational horsepower to allow radiologists to make the next leap in patient care.
Using millions of longitudinal high quality imaging scans, Zebra-Med has been developing a deep learning engine that can automatically detect various medical findings in imaging scans. Current capabilities include automatic detection of liver, lung, cardiovascular, and bone disease all while new capabilities are constantly being released – covering breast cancer, lung cancer, brain trauma, hypertension, and other clinical areas. Zebra-Med’s findings are integrated into the PACS system running on Google Cloud Platform, allowing radiologists to include them in their reading and reporting workflow. This automated assistance contributes to more comprehensive, quantitative, and consistent reporting, improving the output of radiologists and contributing to overall improved patient care. The company’s Analytics Engine is deployed in more than 50 hospitals globally, and has analyzed more than 1M patient scans to date.
“With the AI1 all-in-one offering, enabled on Google Cloud, we can offer health providers ongoing population-health and clinical insights to improve patients' lives and reduce healthcare costs,” says Elad Benjamin, Co-founder and CEO of Zebra Medical Vision. “We are making a commitment to provide our current tools, and all future ones, for a flat $1 USD per scan. By doing so we believe that a true difference can be made in the provision of radiology services worldwide.”
