Shefayim-based machine learning diagnostics company Zebra Medical Vision adds to the medtech space. The founder and chairman, Eyal Gura, founded Zebra after a diving accident that led to many unnecessary procedures because of the technician’s inability to analyze the medical image correctly. Zebra announced a new algorithm that detects breast cancer at an early stage. During the course of 2016, Zebra has announced two algorithms focusing on disease detection for liver and arteries, and it’s planning to release several new algorithms over the course of 2017. Zebra Medical Vision has raised $20 million in two years, which includes its latest round ($12 million) in May.
