Viz.ai, the leading AI stroke platform, is the first AI software to receive a Medicare New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP), helping hospitals adopt advanced technology to improve stroke care.
In 2020, stroke is the leading cause of disability and the second leading cause of death worldwide. 1 in 4 adults will have a stroke in their lifetime, and over 14.5 million people worldwide will suffer from stroke this year.
Knowing the signs of stroke can help you or a loved one access care faster and help save a life. Symptoms of stroke include trouble walking, speaking/understanding, as well as paralysis or numbness of the face, arm, or leg. If you suspect you or someone you know may be having a stroke, act fast and call emergency services.

Viz.ai aims to reduce the number of stroke victims who don’t receive the right treatment in time. Its software cross-references CT images of a patient’s brain with its database of scans and can alert specialists in minutes to early signs of large vessel occlusion strokes that they may have otherwise missed or taken too long to spot.

Viz.ai, Inc., a leading applied artificial intelligence company in healthcare, and NICO Corporation, a leader in modern minimally invasive interventional technologies for neurosurgery, have announced a collaboration to incorporate a new innovative clinical trial recruitment software from Viz.ai into the seminal ENRICH study which is investigating the treatment of intracerebral hemorrhages (ICHs).
Viz.ai, Inc., an applied artificial intelligence company, has been designated as a compatible vendor for the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get With The Guidelines registry, the premier program for assisting hospitals in measuring and improving cardiovascular disease and stroke care through research-based guidelines.
In stroke care, time is brain. The winner of the Best New Radiology Software award -- Viz LVO from software developer Viz.ai -- is designed to speed up diagnosis and treatment by serving as an early-warning system. The software analyzes CT angiography (CTA) images after acquisition and immediately notifies providers that a patient may be having a stroke.
Artificial intelligence (AI) health care startup Viz.ai has raised $21 million in a round of funding led by Kleiner Perkins, with participation from Alphabet’s venture capital arm GV.
FOUR years ago a woman in her early 30s was hit by a car in London. She needed emergency surgery to reduce the pressure on her brain. Her surgeon, Chris Mansi, remembers the operation going well. But she died, and Mr Mansi wanted to know why. He discovered that the problem had been a four-hour delay in getting her from the accident and emergency unit of the hospital where she was first brought, to the operating theatre in his own hospital. That, in turn, was the result of a delay in identifying, from medical scans of her head, that she had a large blood clot in her brain and was in need of immediate treatment. It is to try to avoid repetitions of this sort of delay that Mr Mansi has helped set up a firm called Viz.ai.
Thousands of stroke victims are disabled every year because the right treatment comes too slowly. Some emerging technologies may change that.
The technologies use computer algorithms to cross-reference a stroke patient’s brain scan with a vast database of scans from other victims, allowing a precise diagnosis in minutes. It can be done by less-experienced doctors in outlying hospitals or by paramedics with portable scanning devices in an ambulance.
Reducing time to treatment is key to preventing death and disability from a stroke—more than 90% of patients who are not identified and treated in time and end up severely disabled. Founded in 2016, Viz.ai received a landmark FDA clearance in February 2018 that allowed it to commercialize its “computer-aided triage” software, which uses artificial intelligence to analyze CTA scans and automatically detect large vessel occlusion strokes for quick referral to a specialist.
