Episode Notes

Today's radiologists face a deluge of data, and their work can be tedious and error-prone. But should humans even act as radiologists? It's becoming clear that computers and humans working together are better than either alone. Harry's guest this week is Fabien Beckers, CEO of Arterys, a startup creating products at the intersection of AI, the cloud, and medical imaging. Beckers has led the growth of Arterys from four co-founders to a team of 100 today, as the company brings the first FDA-cleared cloud-based end-to-end platform for medical imaging and analytics to market. Beckers, who holds a PhD in quantum physics from the University of Cambridge and an MBA from Stanford, says his vision for the company is to accelerate data-driven medicine by combining consistent quantification of medical imaging, in combination with molecular, genomic, and patient history data.
