Giving patients a better fighting chance against cancer
At Kheiron, we create Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions that really make a difference. By helping radiologists detect cancer earlier, our next-generation technology can increase chances of survival and pave the way for less invasive treatments*. All while helping radiology departments run more efficiently and manage patient care more effectively.

Our first solution: Revolutionising mammography
Mia®, whose name comes from Mammography Intelligent Assessment, is our breakthrough AI platform for breast screening. Bringing together a suite of solutions, Mia empowers radiologists and screening services to deliver confident, accurate, timely results. Ultimately, Mia supports radiologists in making the most important breast screening decision — should this woman be called back for further testing or not?
Why breast screening?
With our first solution, we chose to focus specifically on how AI could improve breast screening programmes. Why? Because early detection is directly linked to better outcomes for women.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) found that the five-year survival rate for women receiving an early-stage (localised) breast cancer diagnosis is 99%*. When diagnosis occurs at the regional stage, survivorship falls to 86% – and then again to 28% at the distant stage**.
But breast screening is only the beginning. We’re currently looking ahead at how AI can revolutionise diagnostics for other types of cancer. Watch this space.
During October, people across the world showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a cause that’s close to our hearts. We have been honoured to share the stories of 31 people who have been affected by breast cancer. Collectively, these 31 stories convey our wish for the future of breast cancer awareness: That, working together, we can give every woman, everywhere a better fighting chance against breast cancer.
When co-founders Peter Kecskemethy and Tobias Rijken met in 2016, they started with a question: How could AI help to detect cancer sooner, and improve the lives of patients and radiologists around the world? Discover where this spark of inspiration led them.
