Viz.ai develops an automated system that can analyze brain scans and alert stroke specialists that a suspected large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke has been identified, sending the radiological images directly to their smartphone. Viz.ai’s technology was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April.

“Time is the main component of treating a stroke, and yet it takes a lot of time to treat stroke patients at the hospital, mainly due to the time it takes to process brain scans,” Golan said, adding that Viz.ai’s goal is to use AI technologies to shorten the time it takes to diagnose the condition of patients.
