Four years ago I joined Zebra, then just starting out, as a third co-founder. The dream that attracted me to join the two Eyal-s was (and still is) very big – to create a software product capable of automatically reading and diagnosing imaging data. Since then we have grown our team to 40 strong, created one of the largest imaging databases in the world and developed products that can automatically identify liver, lung, cardiovascular and other conditions.

At Zebra-med we set out on a long journey to create an automated radiology assistant – to help radiologists become more efficient and enable them to take care of many more patients. With 2 billion people joining the middle class worldwide and a growing global shortage of clinical experts, there is a sense of urgency to develop technology which can help bridge the gap between supply and demand of radiology services – technology such as the one I’ll discuss here.

The common rhetoric around AI and medical imaging is that AI technology will eliminate jobs. However, as AI technology starts to be implemented within clinical workflows the introduction of new technology will likely create more opportunities for employment in the near term. This is evident in the bone health sector, specifically within how Fracture Liaison Services (FLS) programs are being executed.

As we get ready to head out to the annual Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) conference, we’re excited to be profiled in their new Machine Learning Showcase along with our two partners, Google and Carestream. Even more so, the team here at Zebra Medical Vision is feeling very fortunate that so many partners have already come forward to integrate our technology into their PACS viewers.

Before the weekend, we announced the launch of AI1, a new way of making our artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms – current and future – available to healthcare providers for $1 per scan. We’re so happy to have seen this social-impact business model covered in by Forbes , Engadget, Venturebeat, and other notable publications. among others.

Over the last few years, we’ve been hard at work at Zebra to develop and introduce AI into radiology. We’ve written before about why this is important to us, based on the challenges this field is facing, and the impact we believe we can make. Healthcare is challenging – with long cycles, regulatory barriers and slow adoption of new technology, but our vision of affordable, accessible imaging technology for everyone keeps us continually thinking of ways to accelerate the realization of those goals.

Reflections on Healthcare/ AI Startups While Avoiding Altitude Sickness
Last week, I had a hard time breathing. This wasn’t due to my regular startup day at Zebra Medical Vision, but rather a (naive?) part of summiting Mount Kilimanjaro for my 40th birthday, also known as the rooftop of Africa.

Just over three years ago, Zebra medical vision launched into the world with two fundamental convictions and one mission. We knew that the potential for every novel technology is defined by its most profound application- which can be discovered only by people with ample doses of creativity, persistence and good first aid skills.
We felt the same about human potential: defined by a person’s decisions rather than her ability- a view captured by Shimon Peres in a quote on our wall: “you are as great as the cause you serve.”
