“We are on a mission to provide a cardiologist an insight with every single scan they perform, regardless of the modality used and what part of the heart they scan,” says Dr. Ronny Shalev, co-founder and CEO of Dyad Medical. “While we are clear on our goal to provide universal access to expert-level diagnosis by teaching computers to automatically analyze medical images, we are grateful that others understand where we’re going and believe in our mission.
