What enabled Gyneye to make a mark at AICOG 2024? Here’s a brief history of Gyneye’s cervical cancer screening breakthroughs.
In a country where cervical cancer is a pressing health concern, Gyneye takes center stage. Traditional screening methods are faced with challenges due to costly infrastructure, leading to the development of Gyneye’s portable colposcope.
The roots of Gyneye’s success trace back to Dr. Elisabeth Wikström’s invention of the Gynocular in 2009. Collaborating with Surya Kuchimanchi, and Dr. Ernani Sadural they developed Triage to Diagnose (T2D), an FDA-approved cloud-based solution for colposcopy image capture integrated into electronic health records.
Following the closure of Gynius, Surya Kuchimanchi and Dr. Wikström developed Gyneye, a transformative solution aiming to eradicate cervical cancer, particularly in low-resource settings.
Gyneye allows professionals to capture cervix images, upload them to the cloud, and access expert diagnoses from anywhere, aided by the AI tool “Aditi.” Their vision extends to eradicating cervical cancer.
The Gyneye software, initially funded by a 1,500,000 SEK grant from the Swedish Innovation Agency Vinnova, laid the foundation in 2014 for secure smartphone-based, cloud-based electronic medical records for colposcopy. Field testing in India and Sweden paved the way for Suja Associates to enhance the software, adding telemedicine and machine learning (ML) capabilities. Further testing in various global locations, including Bangladesh, Peru, the Dominican Republic, and the Philippines, solidified Gyneye’s commitment to global healthcare transformation. As AICOG 2024 unfolded, Gyneye hinted at a promising future for cervical screening and diagnosis. Gyneye’s dedication to innovation, integration, and accessibility is bringing hope for a cervical cancer-free world.
