Our story

Let's be frank. We are also users of Hero, because we know our software is the best tool in the industry. At Hero Imaging we have a passionate team of experienced researchers. We are stubborn and don’t always agree but our common vision ensures that we always find the best way forward.

Our backgrounds range from clinical researchers to specialists in applied machine learning which give us both the experience of imaging challenges, and the knowledge to conquer them. Our paths crossed at Umeå University. Our common denominator was that we experienced the same challenge – we all solved problems with code but had no common platform to share functions and pipelines. Over time our mutual challenge grew into a shared vision of how to build a modern research infrastructure for the medical imaging community. We want to remove bottlenecks so you can truly leverage your skills and creativity – ultimately contributing to healthier patients.

Our mission is to simplify advanced medical image analysis for anyone who needs to harness the information and power in medical images. Simply put – your mind, our code.
