Cerebriu’s Mission Is To Simplify Radiology By Infusing Clinical Intelligence at the Point of Imaging

Streamlining workflows and acquiring the right images for the right patient at the right time are our obssessions.

Cerebriu improves workflow efficiency and the quality of care in diagnostic imaging by automatically suggesting protocols adjustments during the MRI examination, identifying critical findings at the point of imaging and notifying the care team for fast radiological analysis and prompt patient management.

By using Cerebriu AI software, the care team can expect a reduction of interruptions to radiologists, an augmentation of technologists’ autonomy and confidence, a reduction of occupational stress, the optimization of MRI utilization with less unnecessary sequences, faster reporting of critical findings and a timely and efficient communication with the care team.


Since 2020 Cerebriu has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
