Medios Technologies

Medios Technologies is a software development company creating deep learning software to assist doctors in grading fundus images for detection of diabetic retinopathy, a type of blindness causes by disease related changes in the vasculature of the retina.

Overview

The technology uses an AI assistant to help any physician detect diabetic retinopathy in the absence of a specialist with the goal of early detection for preventing blindness. Screening for diabetic retinopathy before symptoms occur, can prevent blindness.

Co-founder Bhargav Sosale is a software engineer and product designer who graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and whose father, mother and sister are diabetes doctors. Co-founder Florian Savoy is an expert in computer vision with research experience at University of Illinois and a degree from École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. India is planned to be the company’s first market and the diagnosis will cost $1. Medios is partnered with retinal camera companies including Remidio and Intuvision.

MEDIOS-AI is an AI integrated retinal imaging device that uses the Remidio smartphone. A study of the feasibility of using this smartphone-based retinal camera with in-built offline artificial intelligence algorithm to screen for diabetic retinopathy was published in 2019 JAMA Opthalmology. More than 1300 patients with diabetes mellitus were screened by a team from Aditya Jyot Foundation for Twinling Little Eyes, Mumbae, led by Dr. Natarajan, who is President of the All India Opthalmology Society. Diagnostic accuracy of MEDIOS-AI to detect referable diabetic retinopathy was validated. The AI provides a report in less than 10 seconds. The platform could be extended to other sight-threatening chronic diseases such as glaucoma.
