About Us

Keya Medical develops artificial intelligence applications that help healthcare delivery organizations provide better patient care. Our R&D team is made up of over 70 people, including doctors and post-doctors from leading universities such as Yale, Cornell, Duke, and the University of North Carolina.

Keya Medical conducts scientific research collaborations with more than 200 hospitals around the world. The main applications of our products include cardiovascular function assessment, medical imaging assisted diagnosis, and clinical decision support. Keya Medical’s flagship product, DEEPVESSEL FFR, is the only CT-derived FFR product approved for clinical use in China. It was the first deep learning medical image analysis product in China to obtain CE certification.

AI for Smarter Healthcare

Combining advanced deep learning algorithms and other core technologies with advanced medical concepts, we provide accurate diagnosis and treatment solutions to hospitals, physical examination centers, third-party imaging centers and other medical institutions. Keya Medical collaborates with healthcare institutions to develop and to demonstrate the clinical effectiveness of advanced medical AI solutions. Today, Keya Medical products are widely used in Chinese hospitals, coronary catheterization labs, and imaging centers.

Core Competence

Since 2016, Keya Medical’s strategy has been to assemble a world-class leadership team. Using a powerful cloud-based AI platform capable of processing large volumes of data with advanced AI algorithms, the company continuously updates its knowledge base. Our DEEPVESSEL FFR product has passed a number of clinical trials to validate its accuracy. Keya Medical has also developed expertise in regulatory science, having achieved successful clearances and approvals including a CE Mark, FDA 510(k) clearance, and NMPA Class-III certification for different products.

Our Achievements

Prior to founding Keya Medical, our team of data scientists, engineers, and designers received educations from leading academic institutions around the world. Many of our scientists developed advanced AI technologies for top institutions around the world.

We are committed to developing solutions that solve real clinical challenges. To ensure that AI software meets real needs, we work in collaboration with clinicians at over 200 health systems around the world to understand workflow, end-user needs, and other human factors. Our strong focus on the collaborative development of new AI technologies differentiates us from other AI companies.
