Viz.ai‘s algorithms analyze brain scans and immediately transfer data to ensure rapid stroke treatment. The system connects to a hospital CT and sends alerts when a suspected LVO stroke has been identified. Radiological images are sent to a doctor’s phone. The company claims that the median time from picture to notification is less than 6 minutes, which can be life-saving, as they also claim that standard stroke workflow is now 66 minutes. Patient transfer to interventional centers is initiated through messaging and call capabilities connected with emergency and transportation services.
