The World’s First Autonomous
Powered by AI. No Clicks. No Variability.
What is EchoGo?
EchoGo is a collection of cloud-based artificial intelligence services to support cardiac imaging diagnosis. Now you can take your analysis off-cart in the cloud without any variability or need to touch a device.
Automated calculations Strain and Ejection Fraction
Automated prediction for coronary artery disease
LV Volumes, Strain, EF
Analyze Strain and Ejection Fraction in the cloud without ever having to touch software!
EchoGo Core delivers rapid Strain and Ejection Fraction analysis, automating calculations from the LV. We are the first and only system to fully automate Strain analysis with zero variability as part of a service. Unlike traditional software, there is no manual selection of scans or manipulation of contours. EchoGo Core automates this and delivers a report back within minutes, giving you confidence in clinical evaluation and more time to focus on patient care.
Instant analysis and report delivered within minutes, reducing reporting time
No manual operation or selecting scans, so you can focus on patient care
Full automation delivers accurate, reproducible results giving confidence regardless of skill level
Supports any vendor or PACs, and fits seamlessly into your workflow
Drives value for physicians in the United States through reimbursement. Physicians can report and bill for myocardial strain as of January 2020 with CPT add-on code +93356
Get started with zero up front costs
EchoGo Core was developed and validated in partnership with the NHS (UK).
Accuracy and precision was assessed against EF, GLS and LV volumes produced by other commercially available software that required manual operation and contouring. Images were processed by five trained professionally accredited operators*. The EchoGo service was shown to provide accurate measurements of EF, GLS and LV volumes with zero Inter-operator variability.

Strain reimbursed from January 2020
EchoGo Core allows physicians to measure strain in an automated means with zero variability, which could increase reimbursement and save time.

Performance testing and validation
EchoGo Pro was trialled in the UK and US and achieved a diagnostic performance of over 90% (AUROC), significantly reducing the number of misdiagnoses compared to reports of routine clinical practice. The technology has been validated and developed through its partnership in the EVAREST trial with the NHS, one of the largest ultrasound programmes in the world. It’s trained on past clinical examples, to spot thousands of features, compared to a handful of indicators in traditional visual inspection. The EVAREST validation trial continues to run in over 30 NHS hospitals and has recruited over 6000 patients to date.
Performance of the coronary artery disease classifier:
EchoGo Pro uses novel features derived from Stress Echo images and machine learning algorithms. The system was tested on an independent validation dataset demonstrating an area under the ROC curve of 0.927.
In a reader study to evaluate the benefit of EchoGo Pro in clinical settings, clinicians performed significantly better by diagnostic accuracy, with the aid of EchoGo Pro.
The pipeline of AI algorithms underpinning EchoGo was built in partnership with the NHS in the United Kingdom and leading cardiology clinical centres in the United States, all of which have expertise in echocardiography, vascular assessment and clinical physiology. These have provided access to large imaging archives suitable for training and validation of EchoGo.
The system consists of several fundamental computational phases:
Convolutional neural networks (CNN) applied to the automation of left ventricle (LV) segmentation
Models were created using thousands of echocardiographic images in the two and four chamber views
Cardiac cycles are determined using a complex algorithm to detect the correct end-diastolic (ED) and end-systolic (ES) frames
EchoGo Pro is limited by United States law to investigational use
EchoGo Core is not CE Marked for use in the European Union
