Mammosphere, a secure, digital patient engagement platform that is part of Life Image, the world’s largest network for sharing health data including medical images.
Mammosphere was founded to solve a pervasive problem in healthcare – the lack of interoperability that makes the sharing of medical data extremely challenging, particularly for complex diagnostic images.
Mammosphere’s mission is to empower women to take control of their health by owning her medical records including her breast health history and diagnostic images. We believe that when women control of their health data, they can participate more actively in their care journey, with their physician, with care teams and researchers.
Mammosphere was originally founded in 2012 by breast imaging radiologist Dr. Kathryn Pearson Peyton who grew up with three generations of women afflicted with breast cancer, plus her own personal brush with the disease.
In 2016, Mammosphere became part of Life Image. Today, Mammosphere is leading the way in advancing women’s health technology and supporting breakthroughs in clinical research.
