GE Healthcare Contracts with Israel Firm to Develop Software for Analyzing Ultrasounds

DiA Imaging Analysis of Beersheva, a medical imaging analysis software company, has signed a multi-year, non-exclusive licensing and professional services agreement with GE Healthcare to develop automated imaging analysis technology that will work with GE Healthcare’s ultrasound devices.

The Israeli company’s first-to-market automated tools for analyzing images from handheld ultrasound devices utilize advanced, proprietary pattern-recognition and machine-learning algorithms to improve monitoring of patient conditions. They are cleared by the FDA (United States) and CE (Europe).

“We are planning to soon launch additional automated imaging analysis tools as part of our vision to improve patient care,” said Hila Goldman Aslan, DiA’s CEO and cofounder. “We are excited with this collaboration, and look forward to working with a market leader such as GE Healthcare.”

“These tools would bring new capabilities to ultrasound at the point of care,” said Rob Walton, general manager of GE Healthcare Primary & Affordable Care.

The company displayed its systems at the Machine Learning Showcase of the recent Radiological Society of North America annual meeting in Chicago.
