Deep Breathe focuses on revolutionizing lung health diagnostics through AI and advanced medical imaging, making lung imaging universally accessible and efficient

We offer a range of AI-powered diagnostic tools including UltraMask, PneumoLens, AlveoLUS, and AlveolAI-vet, each designed to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of lung ultrasound diagnostics.

UltraMask removes extraneous information from medical images, creating a clean and anonymized dataset for model development, improving diagnostic accuracy.

Our technology is vendor-agnostic, meaning it works seamlessly across all ultrasound hardware, and is backed by patents. It surpasses trained physicians in diagnostic accuracy for certain conditions.

For more information or to inquire about partnerships and beta testing opportunities, please contact us at general@deepbreathe.ai.

Lung ultrasound is highly accurate and superior to conventional chest X-rays for lung assessment. However, it is underutilized because it is a relatively new technology not routinely taught to doctors. By automating this technology with AI, we ensure it can be used by everyone, maximizing accuracy, convenience, and portability.

Deep Breathe has amassed the largest collection of annotated lung ultrasound images from multiple countries. Combined with our clinical and engineering leadership, this enables us to develop best-in-class AI models, democratizing access to this powerful, portable imaging technique.
