How It Works

Medical terms are highlighted and defined automatically in every report.

Our software analyzes the text of a standard radiology report, translates the medical terms into plain language, and then displays the report in a patient-focused, interactive webpage format.

Patients simply click on medical terms and phrases to show a patient-centered explanation in plain language, right alongside the report.
