Volpara offers mammogram and cardiovascular screening with Azure

Volpara Health Technologies, a Seattle-based healthcare technology company, is in a research and development partnership with Microsoft to use Azure for breast arterial calcifications screening. Heart disease is the leading killer of women and arterial calcifications are associated with heart disease. Building on a recent Volpara patent, the company will use Azure Machine Learning in an effort to boost its data processing.

"Early detection of heart disease can have lifesaving implications. With early knowledge, patients can work with their physician to stop or slow progression. Integrating Azure Machine Learning as a service with Volpara's solution allows providers to connect data and look for meaningful signals through predictive analytics,” stated Tom McGuinness, corporate vice president, Global Healthcare & Life Sciences, Microsoft.
