SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Arterys, the leader in web-based, AI-powered medical image analysis software, today announced that it has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the World's 50 Most Innovative Companies for 2019. The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today's volatile world. Arterys was ranked second among companies in Fast Company's Biotech innovators category.
"Artificial intelligence (AI) and the cloud are powerful tools that have the potential to fundamentally change how patients are diagnosed. Our goals are to bring early and accurate diagnosis to everyone, everywhere and to assist radiologists by delivering necessary and accurate data at their fingertips to drive the best possible patient care," said Arterys CEO Fabien Beckers. "We are honored to be acknowledged by Fast Company for our leadership in healthcare innovations, and the promise our solutions hold for improving the lives of patients around the world."
Over the past year, Arterys has achieved a number of milestones, building on its vision to advance innovations in insight-driven and patient-focused clinical care. In an industry first, the company secured clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2018 for the Arterys Oncology AI application suite, which helps clinicians measure and track tumors or potential cancers, and easily apply radiological standards.
Previously, Arterys introduced the first complete cloud-powered AI solution demonstrating its value in one of the most challenging radiology workflows: imaging of the heart. Arterys Cardio AI taps the power of deep learning and cloud supercomputing to improve the efficiency of cardiac radiologists, enabling them to eliminate tedious manual tasks and quickly and easily detect, track and predict heart problems, saving up to 30 minutes per imaging study.
Earlier this month, for the second consecutive year, Arterys was named to CB Insights' coveted AI 100 ranking, which showcases the 100 most promising private AI companies in the world. Arterys was recognized for its cloud-based AI medical imaging platform, which enhances and expedites physicians' ability to interpret clinical images for accurate diagnosis.
The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. For this year's list, Fast Company sought to recognize groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries and every region, according to deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley. The list provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
