September 14, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) – Voxel Healthcare LLC, a medical startup company leveraging machine learning techniques to provide clinical decision support, together with their partner Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has been awarded a non-dilutive $225,000 Phase I SBIR grant entitled “Machine-Learning based Radiation Toxicity Mitigation in Pediatric Brain Cancer” from the National Cancer Institute. This brings the startup’s total non-dilutive funding raised to 1/2 million dollars. The grant provides seed funding for the extension of their flagship¬†ClickBrain¬†product into Radiation Therapy. The new ClickBrain RT software will use cloud computing-based deep learning technologies to automatically delineate key structures in the brain and to train a machine learning algorithm to predict volumetric changes due to treatment-related radiation dosing to these key structures. This will enable physicians to better avoid unnecessary radiation doses that may cause long-term deficits in children with brain tumors.
