  Visionary Health   We're building an A.I screening solution that can distinguish between normal and abnormal chest x-rays. When our solution clears an image as normal, it is eliminated from radiologists' workflow and sent back to the referring physician. If our solution detects abnormalities, we forward it to a radiologist for further review. This allows radiologists to focus their time examining abnormal images.
