This startup beat out the competition with their medical scan analyzing platform
Facing a fierce set of challengers that took the stage to pitch at Geektime’s ninth annual Techfest Startup Competition, Tel Aviv-based AIdoc ended the day victorious.
The company was co-founded by CEO Elad Walach, CTO Michael Berginsky, VP R&D Guy Reiner, and Yale University radiologist Dr. Gal Yaniv.
AIdoc (formerly TailorMed) is building a platform for radiologists that will improve the process of analyzing medical scans.
Their technology analyzes the scan and the patient’s clinical information, and guides the radiologist to the most relevant places in the scan.
“We envelop the entire work process in order to release the main bottlenecks in the analysis process. We enable the radiologist to focus on what they do best, analyzing diseases,” the company told Geektime. “This is where their knowledge is optimally utilized. In order to accomplish this, we work with new artificial intelligence technology based on deep learning, which we have tailored especially for medical information. The technology makes it possible to find irregularities in a general way that includes many types of diseases, without focusing on an individual disease.”
Still at an early stage, the company has raised $3.5 million from Magma and e.merge VCs. The product itself is still in development, with the goal of getting it into use at hospitals in the US and Israel. The company claims to have a business representative at their beta testing sites in the United States, which will hopefully help them ramp up sales when the time comes.
The only medical-facing tech company in the competition, they overcame a set of solid teams, all of which are developing products for sectors ranging from cyber security, branding, AI, AgTech, and more.
