Emulating expertise with AI
Our vision is to move specialty diagnostics and decision-making to the point of care for every patient exam. We are developing AI software that empowers healthcare providers with new capabilities to acquire and interpret ultrasound exams.
Enabling clinical skill through deep learning
Caption Health, formerly known as Bay Labs, was founded in 2013 on a simple but powerful concept: what if we could use technology to emulate the expertise of highly trained medical experts and put that ability into the hands of every care provider? Our vision is to transform diagnostic health care by expanding access to high-quality medical imaging in order to improve patient outcomes and reduce cost.

Our AI technology portfolio includes three capabilities drawn from the expertise of sonographers and doctors.
Performing ultrasound is a complex skill which typically requires years of training to master. Caption Guidance is designed to use AI to provide real-time guidance, with the goal of enabling healthcare providers to capture diagnostic-quality images from a wide demographic of patients with varying BMIs.
Interpreting ultrasound images is a skill honed by physicians over many years of practice. Our FDA cleared software, AutoEF, is trained on data from thousands of patients to provide an automated ejection fraction measurement that can be used by clinicians in their assessment. Additional automated measurement algorithms are currently in development.
High variability in ultrasound acquisition can be a barrier to accurate diagnosis. Our algorithms automatically select the best clips from a study and quantify their image quality, enabling improved confidence in image acquisition and interpretation.
A unique methodology to develop and deliver transformational AI.

“Left ventricular ejection fraction has been a mainstay of echocardiography for the last 50 years. Caption Health’ use of artificial intelligence for image selection and automated EF measurement will allow clinicians to obtain accurate evaluation of ventricular function and aid in interpretation of the echocardiograms.”
Dr. Madalina Petrescu Director of Echocardiographic Laboratory, Swedish Hospital
“Standardizing echo quality is critical to disease detection. Caption Health’ ability to automate the assessment of image quality and provide accurate measurements can enable the standardization of quality echoes and aid in their interpretation."
