It is a proven solution to speed up diagnosis and with a global shortage of Radiologists, the technology has shown to standardise the speed and accuracy of lung cancer diagnosis in the non-screening population delivering the opportunity of health care equality on a global scale.

“We are honoured to host the Prix Galien Italy and International Prix Galien in tandem, bringing together the most forward-thinking innovators across the life sciences here in Italy, and across the world,” said Pr. Pier Luigi Canonico, Chair of the Prix Galien Italy and International Prix Galien Awards Committee. “It is thrilling to welcome those who have excelled in the pursuit of scientific advancement to the global stage, and we look forward to seeing their continued success as Prix Galien alumni.”

Simon Rasalingham, CEO and Chairman of, “this award further demonstrates, in conjunction with our UK Prix Galien award in 2022, that we are serious force for saving time, money and lives on a global stage.

The NHS is in a critical state  and needs assistance from great British companies such as, which is supported by NHS Consultant Radiologists.”

The technology is deployed in the UK can save 22,000 lives each year and add diagnostic capacity back into the NHS which is equivalent to 233 Consultant Radiologists using one line of AI-enabled code.

The award ceremony in Rome, Italy attended by global leaders of life science organisations with innovations providing the greatest potential impact on human health, the technology has the potential to save millions of lives each on a global scale, whilst adding vital diagnostic AI capacity to health care systems crumbling after the global pandemic. utilise cutting-edge science to pioneer new forms of diagnostic medicine; this innovative approach to healthcare is a step change in the treatment and prevention of  lung cancer and brain related illnesses, delivering benefits to patients across the NHS today. provides artificial intelligence, through its regulated red dot®  platform, to radiology departments.’s technology augments the expertise of radiologists to enable them to report with greater clinical accuracy, faster and more safely than they could before. This revolutionary combination helps save time, money and lives.

The algorithm has been developed using more than 150,000 example images, all of which have been reviewed and reported by highly experienced UK consultant radiology clinicians in order to shape accurate decision making. The red dot® prioritisation platform is capable of sorting images into normal and abnormal categories in 7 seconds post image acquisition straight back into hospital systems.
