The managing partners of Bold Brain Ventures have personally invested in HeartVista. HeartVista believes in leveraging AI with the goal of improving access to MRI and patient care.

The company’s innovative technology originated at the Stanford Magnetic Resonance Systems Research Laboratory. HeartVista is funded by Khosla Ventures and the National Institutes of Health’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program.

The company's FDA-cleared One Click™ MRI solution elevates the standard of care for cardiac imaging. With the One Click™ Cardiac package, scanning is simple, time efficient, affordable, and highly consistent.

HeartVista’s cardiac solution takes control of an existing MRI machine and performs a cardiac exam from start to finish with only one mouse click. The exam takes a fraction of the time of a traditional exam, and contains scans for AI-assisted localization, dynamic stress imaging, LV function, 4D flow assessment, and myocardial delayed enhancement.

Key Benefits of HeartVista's Cardiac MRI Solution:
  • Cardiac exams are completed up to 6x faster
  • Standard cardiac views can be prescribed in as few as 15 seconds with a click of the mouse
  • Fewer breath holds so the patient can breathe more comfortably
  • Real time scanning & efficiency: images appear as they are scanned
  • Arrhythmia robust: up to 12% increase in image consistency
  • Higher quality scans: alerts the user if diagnostically relevant motion artifacts appear
Recently, HeartVista welcomed former VERITAS CEO & Chairman Mark Leslie to its board of directors. The company has also unveiled a star-studded medical and scientific advisory board that includes leaders from Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin.

Radiologists Can Help Shape Medicine's Use of AI

By Aine Cryts, Axis Imaging News, February 7th, 2020

"Radiologists are in a unique position to lead the development of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine. That’s according to Ajay Kohli, MD, a radiology resident at the University of Pennsylvania Health System in Philadelphia, who credits the radiology specialty’s early embrace of technology in diagnosing and treating patients..."

Quote from Dr. Ajay Kohli:

"The financial cost, and the associated risk, of starting an AI company is quite high. Few, if any, radiologists are interested in starting their own companies or actively spending many hours each week advising existing companies.

That said, Pittsburgh-based Bold Brain Ventures is reducing radiologists’ risk and time investment, while also ensuring that they have a role in shaping and benefiting from the coming AI revolution..."

Note: Dr. Kohli does not have a financial, advising, or endorsement relationship with Bold Brain Ventures. We met Ajay Kohli at RSNA and found that we share a similar vision: we believe that radiologists are poised to help lead healthcare AI development.
