Why IRA Labs?

Complex approach

We analyze all the organs presented in the scan, which helps the radiologist and clinician get a complete picture of the patient's condition without missing anything, cope with the routine faster, and focus at once on differential diagnosis.

High-quality algorithms

A strong and dedicated development team of algorithmic scientists, consisting of graduates of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and Skoltech, under the guidance of computer vision expert Mikhail Belyaev. A team of expert radiologists participates in the training of each algorithm. All modules go through several stages of testing and are constantly being improved.

Leader in Moscow AI experiment

Since 2020 Moscow's healthcare departments have experimented with innovative computer vision technology for medical image analysis with the participation of 21 companies (including international). Currently, IRA Labs is the leader in terms of quality and quantity of products:
  • COVID-19 - ROC AUC 0.98
  • Pulmonary nodes - ROC AUC 0.93
  • Aortic aneurysms - ROC AUC 0.99
  • Coronary artery calcification - ROC AUC 0.98
  • Pericardial/epicardial fat - ROC AUC 0.99
  • Osteoporosis - ROC AUC 0.99

Compliance with clinical practice guidelines

Our product speaks the same language as a doctor: we build an interpretable result following international clinical guidelines for each finding.

Advanced scientific results

The product is built based on cutting-edge scientific results obtained in collaboration with the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

We are IRA Labs

Our goal

To create a high-quality service that will become an indispensable assistant to a radiologist. We strive for artificial intelligence to take over routine measurements, help identify the underlying disease and comorbidities, to ensure the highest quality of diagnosis.

Our story
Since 2016, our research team has studied machine learning methods in biomedical problems. In 2020, when the pandemic dramatically increased the flow of CT scans, we saw an opportunity to apply our knowledge to automated CT analysis tasks. We were one of the first to make a product for COVID-19. Our solution was recognized as the leader among 15 competing companies and had the highest ROC AUC value among publicly available services.
Our name
Our values are reflected in the name: IRA Labs is short for Intelligent Radiology Assistance Laboratories.
