Completed pilot

Zebra – Hospital Sírio Libanês


Nov 2018 - June 2019


Hospital Sirio Libanes. São Paulo, Brazil

Hospital Sirio Libanes piloted Zebra’s  AI solution for vertebral compression fractures to identify patients at risk for osteoporosis. The pilot encourages radiologists to work with AI and provide feedback on the software. It also empowers radiologists to include AI as part of their workflow to prevent unreported or undiagnosed cases and evaluate the need for osteoporosis prevention programs.



  • Nearly 1,000 unique studies were analyzed
  • 27% of the positive cases were highlighted by Zebra and were NOT reported in the original patient reports
  • Zebra was able to detect positive cases of Vertical Compression Fractures in 77% of the cases
  • Zebra reported 92% specificity for overall cases and 96% specificity for moderate/severe case
Lessons Learned

Through this experience of piloting in a Brazilian market, Zebra learned how radiologists work in comparison to other countries, what the main challenges around bone health in Brazil, and where Zebra can provide additional value.

"The TechEmerge Health program is able to provide support for pilot projects in an organized and thorough way. It was valuable to monitor the progress through reports and conversations on the progress as well as what's coming ahead. Having a successful pilot with TechEmerge Health in Brazil, has contributed to a lot more engagement with Brazilian hospitals."
