Signify Premium Insight: Piur Imaging’s Ultrasound Upgrade
Published: July 27, 2023
Austrian vendor Piur Imaging recently secured Eur4.9m in funding, which it hopes will help it expand into the US. The Series A round, led by European VC firm Ascend Capital Partners, will add to earlier investment, which includes more than Eur2m from a Horizon 2020 grant.
The vendor produces a package comprising of hardware and software which enables 2D ultrasound systems manufactured by any vendor to produce 3D tomographic images, which it says bridges the gap between 2D ultrasound and 3D modalities such as MRI and CT. This enables 2D ultrasound systems equipped with Piur’s tUS Infinity to be used for volumetric acquisitions of organs and structures.
Despite these claims however, could such a system really have a significant impact on the ultrasound market?
