We are on a mission to help radiologists detect breast cancer earlier using deep learning.

Kheiron is a fast-growing, medical technology company that uses advanced machine learning to develop and deliver intelligent tools for radiologists, radiology departments, imaging centres and hospitals to improve the efficiency, consistency and accuracy of radiology reporting. We aim to save more lives by empowering radiologists in their role in diagnosis, treatment, and patient outcome.

Kheiron has offices in London, San Francisco, Budapest and the Netherlands. We are backed by Connect Ventures, Hoxton Ventures, Atomico, Greycroft and Exor Seeds.

We are proud that Kheiron is one of the winners of the first UK Government Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health and Care Awards.

The funding will accelerate the roll out and rapid adoption of Mia (Mammography Intelligent Assessment) to address critical challenges in breast screening services.

Act as a clinical resource for our North American clinical stakeholders, troubleshooting with the customer success and sales team any concerns/issues throughout the implementation of Mia and during post-market follow-up. 
    • Provide a “clinical eye” to initial customer output of any Mia solutions. Make any recommendations to our internal team accordingly to achieve the clinical outcomes defined. 
    • Participate in the development, delivery and evaluation of education and training materials for clinical users to support FDA regulatory submissions and ensure successful clinical adoption of our solutions
    • Capture and communicate key learnings from our site implementations and embed continuous improvement methodologies in all areas of our work

    • Develop strong partnerships with our customer success team to execute our strategic plan, support deployment and post-sale success, and deliver customer satisfaction 
    • Work collaboratively with clinical scientists and contribute to the development of North American clinical trials, publications, grant applications, press releases, marketing collateral, and internal briefings as required
    • Travel to customer sites with the sales team if needed for critical physician-to-physician conversations. 
    • Attend and present at industry conferences (RSNA, SBI, etc.) as needed
