We're looking for a passionate individual to join our team who shares our vision, an Artificial Intelligence Engineer with a PhD to help us to improve our AH-1 software.
Tensor Medical is a spin-off company of the University of Girona and the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Research (VHIR) in Barcelona with the main goal of helping clinical experts to improve care of patients suffering neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). At Tensor, we develop software that provides the most robust and precise medical imaging biomarkers to improve the clinical management of patients, to predict future disease stages and to optimize the treatment decisions for each patient.
We are a small remote-first startup that dreams big but always with a firm foot on the ground. Our team is composed of 10 members including medical key opinion leaders and internationally awarded medical imaging researchers. We are completely convinced that medical imaging biomarkers will revolutionize neuroradiology, so we are working on our mission to become the standard protocol in the clinical management of neurodegenerative diseases.
Nowadays, we are focusing first on improving the clinical management of MS patients. MS patients are treated with different disease modifying treatments where their adherence is mostly based on the lack of brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) activity (presence of new lesions) during periodic follow-ups. However, neuroradiologists quantify the presence of lesions by a tedious, time-consuming, and error-driven visual process that reduces their sensitivity below 50% in some cases, which can lead to sub-optimal treatments and increasing disability of the patient in the mid-term.
Although there are several automated solutions in the market that can deal with MS follow-up of MRI activity, still the latest international clinical guides published last year at the Lancet Neurology do not recommend the use of software solutions for MS follow-up mostly because of 1) the lack of evidence that these tools work in clinical settings and 2) the need of strict standardization of image acquisition (i.e., identical MRI system, pulse sequences, and acquisition parameters).
We are working to solve these issues, developing our deep learning-based software platform AH-1 that helps neuroradiologists to improve the assessment of MRI activity in MS patients, offering unprecedented sensitivity and specificity in detecting new appearing lesions.
We are looking for a new passionate member of our team who shares our vision, an artificial intelligence and computer vision engineer who will help us to improve the AH-1 software in ways we cannot imagine.
