A University of Alberta spinoff company is hoping its new technology to analyze ultrasound images will make diagnosing health problems possible even from remote locations.

“My vision is for a 21st-century stethoscope, a tool where you can look inside the body and use artificial intelligence to help people who are not experts interpret the images,” said U of A radiologist Jacob Jaremko. 

Along with former U of A/Alberta Innovates post-doctoral fellow Dornoosh Zonoobi and Jeevesh Kapur, a radiologist from Singapore, Jaremko formed Medo.ai two years ago to develop and commercialize software that creates and analyzes 3-D images from ultrasounds.
