Abstract: Image Analysis is a medical software company founded to commercialise the algorithms developed by Dr Olga Kubassova during her PhD. These algorithms support quantification of inflammatory diseases from MRI data. This seminar will cover the history of Image Analysis, covering challenges, learnings, advice and successes. Over the years the strategy has evolved. The business plan now talks as much about services and community as it does about software. At the heart of the business the constant has been the intellect, energy and determination of the founder. This coupled with getting the right team in place has led Image Analysis to its current springboard for growth.
