August 16, 2016 -- Big-data visualization software developer Zebra Medical Vision announced two new software algorithms that automatically quantify the amount of coronary artery calcium (CAC) and detect the presence of fatty liver in patients' CT scans.

Individually, the algorithms inform caregivers about the cardiovascular and metabolic state of their patients, and together they provide predictors for risk of heart attack and stroke, the firm said.

By applying the algorithms to patients' CT scans, physicians can identify high-risk patients earlier, and self-insured large employers or insurance companies can better assess risk using existing imaging data, Zebra Medical said.
