About Smart Soft Ltd
Guided by the corporate values of creativity, simplicity and affordability, SmartSoft is a leading developer of automated MRI lumbar spine assistant system. The company has been growing in its field for the last ten years and has been profitable all this time. Smart Soft develops CoLumbo – a unique machine learning algorithm, based on convolutional neural networks which are capable of reading MRI spine images and assist the radiologists in generating pathology-driven reporting thereby saving significant time to this frequently recurring work. The main object of CoLumbo is to provide workflow enhancement with reduction of interpretation time of at least 20% (examination review and description of findings) for herniation, stenosis, listhesis, lordosis and reduced disk height.
CoLumbo is being clinically evaluated by various radiology departments and CE and FDA clearance are being planned for 2020 and 2021 respectively.
“With his vast experience in medical imaging and neuroradiology Dr. Tanenbaum will contribute to the experience and knowledge in our team. We are glad to have him as a Medical lead and to advise and guide the CoLumbo project” said Nedelcho Georgiev, CEO of Smart Soft Ltd.
