Israel-based Zebra Medical Vision is building a database of anonymous medical images, from X-rays to CT and MRI scans, and using machine and deep learning to help health professionals identify patients at risk of disease. Its services are provided to doctors, healthcare providers and bodies funding care such as insurers.
The company raised $20m (£15m) in funding between 2015 and 2016, with its main investors including Khosla Ventures, Marc Benioff, Intermountain Investment Fund, OurCrowd and Dolby Ventures. The founders are Elad Benjamin, Eyal Toledano and Eyal Gura.
In March 2017, Zebra was named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 50 companies leading the AI revolution.
One of its latest developments is an algorithm capable of detecting vertebral fractures. These affect up to one in four postmenopausal women and nearly one in seven men over the age of 65.
Other algorithms can detect low bone mineral density, breast cancer, fatty liver, coronary artery calcium and emphysema.
