Sycai Medical is a technological startup founded in Barcelona in 2020, born from the motivation of empowering radiologists to improve healthcare through artificial vision and big data. They develop AI-based algorithms, which helps medical professionals in the diagnosisof abdominal injuries and in the prediction of their evolution to increase early-stage cancer detection and improving the quality of life of patients with chronic diseases.
Their product Sycai Medical is an assistant, which helps radiologists to detect pancreatic cystic lesions, predicting their malignant potential and presenting similar cases to verify the diagnosis.
This kind of lesions can evolve into pancreatic cancer, the 4th cause of death by cancer in Europe with an average survival time from diagnosis of less than 5 months and currently without an efficient method or early diagnosis.
The follow-up treatment of the pancreatic cysts leads to repetitive image tests for life, due to the difficulty of predicting which ones are going to be malignant and which are staying benign. The ability of predicting their evolution is the key to increase early detection of pancreatic cancer and to optimize the follow-up treatments.
Their Artificial Intelligence and Big Data based software assists radiologists in the detection and classification of abdominal lesions on CT scans and MRIs. It also provides a prediction of the probability of each lesion to become cancer in the future, which is crucial to diagnose early-stage pancreatic cancer and to improve the life quality of patients.
