Millions of thyroid biopsies are done every year based on very subjective criteria to find thyroid cancer in a very small percentage of population with an invasive technique which may not be diagnostic 1 out of 7 times.

AIBx is a clinical decision support tool.

Uses deep learning to find similar thyroid ultrasound images from our database and displays it along with the associated diagnosis.

Physicians can compare these similar images to their test image and reach a clinical decision.

External validation study done in Europe confirmed the efficacy of AIBx.
