Leveraging brain image analysis through machine intelligence

Business Developer

Do you love developing and designing systems that matter? At Tensor, we listen twice as much as we talk. We are looking for a passionate human being who shares our mission and can help us to develop a market strategy for our medical software using her experience, opinions, and ideas.

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 have the strong vision to provide the most robust and precise medical imaging biomarkers that will improve the clinical management of patients, predicting future disease stages and to optimizing 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 9 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.

What are we trying to solve?

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 visually 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.

Currently, there are several automated solutions in the market that can deal with MS follow-up of MRI activity. However, the latest international clinical guides published last year in 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 for strict standardization of image acquisition (i.e., identical MRI system, pulse sequences, and acquisition parameters). 

At Tensor, we are developing a cloud-based software platform powered by cutting-edge machine learning algorithms that help neuroradiologists to improve the assessment of MRI activity in MS patients. Currently, we are validating our software platform at various hospitals around Europe and working with the medical device regulation to certify our product in Europe and United States before 2024, where we plan to start the first sales in both markets.
