Let's fight cardiovascular disease together, everywhere.

We believe No heart can waitTM

That is why our AI lets every health care professional perform world class heart scans with just hours of training. Join us in bringing heart health to the whole world.

Works with any hand-held, portable or cart-based system

The product is tested and validated on multiple ultrasound systems and brands, and is proven to work on cart-based, compact and hand-held units. With both apps and software development kits available, customization is available to fit the needs of any partner

Automated, live guidance for faster scans, and fewer errors

The patented user interface shortens exam image capture while obtaining diagnostic quality images, more cost-effectively, saving time, money and lives. Quality is automatically certified inside the product and pre-packaged for cardio interpretation anywhere

Trained on more than 1.5 million heart images

DESKi has compiled a unique database and AI library based on millions of images and has validated deep learning algorithms through clinical trials. With our proprietary software, HeartFocus, we can now demonstrate that any healthcare professional can obtain high-quality cardiac ultrasound images

We exist to build a smarter path to heart scans for all.

More than half a billion people worldwide live with heart disease, and wait times are longer than ever*

The old way

  • Limited access
  • Too few qualified HCPs
  • Fewer early scans lead to higher acuity
  • Long wait times to cardiologist action
  • #1 cause of death
  • Heart disease costs US ~$239.9B a year*

The HeartFocus way

  • Increased access
  • Any HCP can do heart exams
  • Proactive scans to triage acuity
    (alt. triage acute heart issues)
  • Lower wait times for cardiologist action
  • Address society’s #1 cause of death
  • Reduced social cost and increased quality of life

We believe improving cardiac ultrasound access will reduce medical costs.

HeartFocus is an AI-powered heart exam software for ultrasound, and can be used with any probe or system. The product is available as an App or SDK, and appropriate for clinics, health systems and learning institutions

DESKi offers a solid roadmap of must-have AI products.

HeartFocus App

HeartFocus App is offered as a branded software App, with a patented experience that leads the user to obtain the ideal probe movement and diagnostic quality images

The app runs Al models to guide, detect and capture in real time the 10 ultrasound cardiac reference views. Including the parasternal long axis, parasternal short axis at aortic valve, mitral valve, and papillary muscles, apical 5-4-3-2-chamber, subcostal 4-chamber, and inferior vena cava

HeartFocus / HeartFocus Doppler SDK

HeartFocus and HeartFocus Doppler SDK  are also offered as branded software development toolkits (SDK) which can be built into customized partner cardio ultrasound system 

The HeartFocus SDK offers guidance, detection and automatic recording  similar to the HeartFocus app

The HeartFocus Doppler SDK offers live valve detection to improve and certify Doppler workflow

HeartFocus Doppler

HeartFocus Doppler is new for 2025, with all the benefits of HeartFocus, plus new Doppler functionality

Doppler works on top of guidance, to automate Doppler acquisition by identifying in real time the cardiac valves, and provides color Doppler, and M-mode support

HeartFocus for Kids

HeartFocus Kids is new for 2025, with all the benefits of HeartFocus, but now customized for younger patients 


The App includes: The unique patented user experience from HeartFocus with all AIs - now adapted to and medically cleared for kids too

Our patented AI is built on a library of more than 1.5 million images, believed to be the largest in the industry

Superior patented ‘wow’ user experience that lets any HCP do a heart exam after only hours of training

Quantified real-time guidance happens inside the ultrasound image, to reduce mental overload, and gives real-time feedback with quality and precision indicators

HeartFocus automatically records the top quality clips of the 10 ultrasound cardiac reference views in real-time

Parasternal long axis, parasternal short axis at aortic valve, mitral valve, and papillary muscles, apical 5-4-3-2-chamber, subcostal 4-chamber, and inferior vena cava

High quality certification improves the cardiac standard and care

Validated internationally through clinical studies

Meet the founders.

HeartFocus is the brainchild of French brothers Bertrand, who holds dual doctorates in medicine and engineering, and Olivier Moal, a Berkeley and EPFL engineering alum.

In San Francisco’s winter of 2014, the brothers devised a ground-breaking imaging algorithm. This venture quickly evolved into a specialized endeavour in medical imaging, fueled by collaborations with Bordeaux’s healthcare and academic institutions.

Moved by cardiology’s pressing challenges, the Moal brothers refined their focus to democratize cardiac ultrasound expertise. Supported by an ambitious team, they developed the HeartFocus solution. This AI guidance technology, born from a blend of innovation, compassion, and international collaboration, is setting a new standard for accessible, advanced cardiac care.
