How Vysioneer Improves Precision Radiation Therapy

A member of the NVIDIA Inception startup accelerator program, Vysioneer builds AI tools to automate the time-consuming process of tumor contouring. To ensure the efficacy and safety of radiotherapy, radiation oncologists can easily spend hours contouring tumors from medical scans, Lu said. The company’s first product, VBrain, can identify the three most common types of brain tumors from CT and MRI scans. Trained on NVIDIA V100 Tensor Core GPUs in the cloud and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 GPUs on premises, the tool can speed up the contouring task by more than 6x — from over an hour to less than 10 minutes.
