Hera-MI is a French company headquartered in Nantes. The company was founded in April 2017 by co-founders Sylvie Davila, graduate from a PhD in biology and an Executive MBA from Audencia Business School, and Dr. Bruno Scheffer, Medical Doctor and breast radiologist with over 30 years of experience in oncology.
Specialized in digital medical imaging applied to breast cancer, Hera-MI has developed clinical decision support solutions to help improve early-stage breast cancer detection. Our solutions will improve the quality and accuracy of breast cancer diagnosis while decreasing radiologists’ interpretation time. Patients will be treated more quickly, offering them a better chance of remission.
Hera-MI has developed Breast-SlimView, a clinical decision support software based on artificial intelligence and image processing for breast cancer diagnosis. Our partner, Fujifilm is selling Breast-SlimView in France and in the Overseas Territories of France (DROM/TOM). Breast-SlimView is also available for sale all over the world.
The name ‘‘Hera-MI’’ results from the combination of ‘’Hera’’ and ‘’MI’’.
In Greek mythology, “Hera” is the protective goddess of women, life and family & “MI” refers to “Medical Imaging”.
The main purpose of Hera-MI is to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help early-stage breast cancer diagnosis in order to optimize patient care and save millions of women worldwide.
Our ambition is to speed up and improve breast cancer diagnosis thanks to the development of clinical decision support solutions.
