Davis startup creates life saving solutions

Davis startup creates life saving solutions


DAVIS - Stratovan's motto is saving lives through software.

When you talk to co-founder David Wiley, you sense it's not just talk. He started the company in 2005 with his computer science professor at UC Davis Dr. Bernd Hamann.

"I really felt we could make a difference," Wiley explained. "I really felt the healthcare market needed it, our help the most."

The company started out building next generation 3D medical imaging software. Taking CT scans, they render them in 3D which can be viewed from various angles.

Dr. Boaz Arzi at the UC Davis animal hospital is using their software to study jaw joints on mammals.

"Over a long period of time, you can really get a high body of work that is very precise using this software," Arzi said.

Man hit by train in Yolo County


A man was hit by an Amtrak train and killed early Wednesday morning near Davis.

The train conductor told Yolo County sheriff's deputies he saw the man standing on the tracks. Yolo County Sheriff's Capt. Larry Cecchettini said by the time the train was able to stop, it had already hit the victim.

Cecchettini said the man's identity will be released by the Yolo County Coroner's Office after next of kin is notified.

The train was traveling eastbound from San Jose to Sacramento when the crash happened around 1 a.m. near the intersection of County Road 105 and County Road 332A, an unincorporated area of Yolo County.

Cecchettini said the train was traveling 79 mph at the time of the crash.
