Brainomix developed a software that allows expertise of a world class stroke assessment team to be accessible by any doctor in an emergency department.
Brainomix is led by managing director Dr Michalis Papadakis, along with co-founders Professor Iris Grunwald and Professor Alastair Buchan, Professor of Stroke Medicine and Head of the Medical Sciences Division at the University of Oxford.

e-ASPECTS automates the Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) pioneered by Prof Buchan. Over the last 12 years ASPECTS has been adopted worldwide. The original ASPECTS system relies on a scoring system to assess CT (X-ray computed tomography) scans but requires a stroke expert to gauge the images. The automated e-ASPECTS encapsulates the expertise of Prof Buchan and his team in software that processes CT images. The software gives a score that can be used by any doctor to assist in deciding on an intervention where there is only a four and a half hour window for treatment from the onset of the stroke.

Brainomix was set up by Isis Innovation, the technology transfer arm of the University of Oxford, and developed with the support of the National Institute for Health Research Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
