AusculTech Dx is a Children’s National Hospital spin-off commercializing auscultation-analysis research.
Auscultation is the act (or process) of listening to the heart, lung, and other body sounds using a stethoscope as part of a medical exam.
StethAidTM is our digital stethoscope, which along with the mobile app and web dashboard, form our smart digital auscultation platform.
StethAidTM brings intelligent heart murmur identification from specialist offices to primary care offices.
Our digital auscultation platform enables easy recording and cloud-based storage and sharing of heart sounds using a mobile app.
Embedded in the app are clinically validated AI algorithms that help identify innocent Still’s murmur with cardiologist-level accuracy at the point of care.
Recording environments can be noisy; our adaptive noise cancellation algorithm eliminates unwanted ambient sounds.
