Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and expand healthcare access using AI tools to democratize echo, the most commonly used tool for detection of heart risk.

Heart disease is the #1 killer worldwide

Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart) is the first test of choice for cardiologists since, compared to other imaging methods, as it’s

Less Expensive

More Mobile

Non-Invasive & Radiation Free

Us2.ai is building a future where everyone, from the most advanced tech-driven regions to the most resource-constrained communities, can have equal access to high quality, consistent, and inexpensive echo analysis, for a better heart and a better life.

Us2.ai is a spinoff with support from Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), built upon a major cardiovascular research platform across 11 countries.  We’ve partnered with top-tier echo core labs in the US and Europe to revolutionize ultrasound bringing AI enhanced imaging to all of us. 

 

 

The company’s founders bring decades of experience building technology companies from zero to IPO, running echo core labs and leading global, cardiological clinical trials.  Together, we’ve partnered with data scientists from Singapore’s Bioinformatics Institute and the Institute for High-Performance Computing to make life easier for echo specialists everywhere.
