About Us

ImageBiopsy Lab (IB Lab) is a Health-AI startup based in Vienna. We are dedicated to offer solutions for the prediction and assessment of bone diseases of which osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common one worldwide.

OUR MISSION

Our vision is building image analysis algorithms capable of extracting information from digital X-Rays that goes far beyond the processing capabilities of the human eye. Our expertise in bone health is the result of 10+ years of research focusing on standardization and objectification of bone diseases classification and the detection of early disease onset. We are driven by innovations that have the potential to transform the healthcare industry by providing novel, AI-based clinical decision support systems to address ongoing shortcomings in assessing and grading various bone diseases.

For this reason, IB Lab developed a software which analyzes the severity of OA and the overall health of the bone in a standardized and objective manner. This enables more precisely targeted therapies, cost reduction and better quality of life for patients.

The ImageBiopsy Lab Team

We are a team of engineers, physicians and scientists working side-by-side to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the diagnostic process. Product development and research strategies are built upon the desire to support physicians and patients in better understanding and managing the disease.
