Welcome to Galileo

Galileo CDS is the first clinical decision support tool based on Machine Learning to be used in Radiology. Galileo will simplify image observation and accelerate reporting for most radiology cases.

Automate your non-reimbursable tasks with integrated diagnostic decision support and standardized report generation.

Based on 20+ years of research, our solutions are designed to reduce the risk of human error and increase efficiency while improving the quality of radiology reports.

This research software has steadily improved in performance and operational efficiency, ultimately leading Dr. Bryan to found Galileo CDS, Inc. in order to extend this capability to the clinical environment.
Dr. Bryan is an internationally recognized neuroradiologist, having been Chairman of Radiology at the NIH (1997-1999) and at the University of Pennsylvania (1999-2014). He also served as President and Chairman of the Board of RSNA, served on the Board of the American College of Radiology, and as President of ASNR. These clinical, socioeconomic and administrative responsibilities have provided Dr. Bryan with valuable insights into unmet needs in the practice and business of clinical radiology.
