Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death. Using MRI to identify the underlying cause of CV disease has distinct advantages but can take hours, is reserved to elite medical institutions and is a complex procedure resulting in only partial diagnosis. Technology developed by Arterys, a company in QB3 incubator space at UCSF, reduces the complexity of this procedure and accelerates time to results. The Arterys SystemTM combines deep learning with cloud computation to provide highly accurate data to radiologists. They can make better-informed diagnoses using a non-invasive MRI procedure that is quick, accessible and easy for both radiologist and patient. On March 10, Arterys’s co-founder and CEO Fabien Beckers will tell us how he’s grown his company to this point and the future he envisions for Arterys.
