Pourquoi AI-Stroke ?
"Even if, as a neurologist and as a researcher, my specialty is rather Multiple Sclerosis (another very serious neurological condition), I deal with stroke on a daily basis: my department welcomes 3 stroke patients per day and 80% of the beds are occupied by stroke patients! In addition, as head of the department, I still make a lot of guards and I am really in contact with the patients. When I met Cédric and he introduced me to AI-Stroke, I was immediately taken in because the medical need is absolutely obvious, because every minute saved in the diagnosis can change a life... and because the entrepreneurial adventure is exciting."
