Established in 2014 and based in central Israel, Zebra Medical uses artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms for the automated analysis of radiological scans such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI. Last month, the company announced it had received FDA clearance for its automated chest x-ray triage product that uses deep learning technology to analyze chest x-ray images in order to detect and prioritize lung trauma. The company has raised $50 million to date, according to Pitchbook data.
