Founded in 2007, HeartFlow has developed cloud-based software to aid cardiologists in coronary artery disease diagnosis, which affects some 400 million people world-wide. Using data from CT scans, HeartFlow’s platform creates a 3-D model of coronary arteries and applies algorithms to examine blockages in blood flow.

The Redwood City, Calif.-based company has been in beta for the last three years in 80 health-care centers in the U.S. and abroad. Results of clinical trials show the technology helps reduce unnecessary angiograms or invasive procedures, and shortens the turnaround time to diagnosis.
