Israel’s Zebra Medical Vision has signed a partnership deal with India-based Teleradiology Solutions’ (TRS) technology arm Telerad Tech to jointly deploy artificial intelligence with an aim to improve medical imaging diagnosis.
Under the collaboration, Zebra Medical Vision’s cloud-based analytics engine will be integrated with Telerad Tech’s RADSpa, a cloud-based combined PACS/RIS platform.
The solution will be offered to more than 20 countries as well as 150 hospitals and healthcare organisations.
Zebra medical Vision co-founder and CEO Elad Benjamin said: “Zebra’s mission has always been to make radiology more accessible and affordable globally.
“Our partnership with Telerad Tech will help us bridge the growing gap between demand and supply of radiology services, and allow developing healthcare economies to make a leap in their quality of care by using state-of-the-art deep learning technology.”
In 2015, Zebra Medical Vision released clinical applications that automatically identify liver, lung, bone and cardiovascular disease, as well as breast cancer and intra-cranial bleeding.
Teleradiology Solutions and Telerad Tech founder and CEO Dr Arjun Kalyanpur said: “Our emphasis and focus has always been on high-quality radiology reporting and accessibility.
“Zebra's ability to produce and deploy AI for radiology is the exact type of added value we hope to bring to help fulfil our vision of impacting patient diagnosis and medical care in India, Asia, and Africa.”
Teleradiology Solutions currently provides several teleradiology services such as CT, MRI, X-ray, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and echocardiograms in over 150 hospitals in 19 countries worldwide.
