31 Aug KA Imaging’s CTO Dr. Karim S Karim Introduces Reveal 35C at IsDB Annual Meeting
Our CTO Karim S. Karim was one of the speakers on the sidelines of the 2021 Islamic Development Bank Group Annual Meeting in Uzbekistan. Dr. Karim introduced Reveal 35C as a solution for low and middle-income countries to screen for Covid-19 and other infectious diseases during the session “Showcase of Innovation of Tomorrow Powered by Transform Fund”.
“Health Care is governed by metrics of quality, cost and access,” said Karim. He continued: “When technologies come out, they tend to focus on just one of those aspects. It works in some societies, but it will not work out here [in mountainous regions]. Good technologies will achieve at least two of the requirements quality and cost; quality and access… But it’s very rare to find a technology that can meet quality, cost and access simultaneously. In the mountain regions of Central Asia access is critical. Everybody who has lived in a remote mountain community that gets blockaded 4 months in the winter because of snow will appreciate what I mean by access. Innovation is hard. Reveal 35C is meant to address all 3 metrics of quality, cost and access.”
The IsDB Meeting is held annually to discuss development issues and institutional matters, promoting partnerships, cooperation, and knowledge sharing.
