South Africa’s Envisionit Deep AI Gets $1.65 Million to Expand Access to Medical Imaging

By Annie Njanja

Dr. Jaishree Naidoo was in charge of pediatric radiology at a South African hospital in 2014 when she had a moment of epiphany after coming across a news story on the usage of AI recognition pattern in distinguishing animals.

As a radiologist with 20 years of experience, Naidoo was already familiar with pattern recognition, and she could immediately see how AI could be used in the industry to transform access to diagnostic imaging. The flame had been lit, and in 2019, together with her husband, Terence Naidu, and Andrei Migatchev, Naidoo launched Envisionit Deep AI, a health tech startup that uses AI to bridge demand for diagnostic imaging.
