Fujifilm VisualSonics and Piur Imaging Partner on Ultrasound Technology – Imaging Technology News


The partnership will enable ultra-high frequency, 3-D ultrasound imaging technology
February 10, 2022 — Fujifilm VisualSonics, a global provider of ultra-high-frequency (UHF) ultrasound imaging systems, and Piur Imaging, a European leader in tomographic ultrasound imaging, have partnered to bring UHF, three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging technology to clinicians and researchers. This technological advancement supports clinical research in the evaluation of anomalies in several applications, including dermatology, neurology, vascular, and MSK. 
“UHF ultrasound, delivered through Fujifilm VisualSonics’ systems, is the highest resolution medical ultrasound available today. The Fujifilm VisualSonics’ Vevo MD, coupled with Piur Imaging’s tUS Infinity platform, offers researchers and clinicians the ability to visualize and measure ultrasound volumes in 3D,” said Greg Nesbitt, vice president, global high frequency, Fujifilm VisualSonics. “We are confident that our partnership with Piur Imaging will enable users to add a new dimension in visualizing pathological tissue in a variety of clinical applications.” 
PIUR tUS Infinity is a wireless add-on solution, consisting of a patented sensor-based tracking unit, a video transmission box, and software for image analysis and 3D rendering. When combined with Fujifilm VisualSonics’ Vevo MD ultrasound imaging system, this produces three-dimensional UHF ultrasound volumetrics. 
The Infinity sensor, when clipped onto a Fujifilm VisualSonics’ Vevo MD ultrasound transducer, works seamlessly with the workstation running the Infinity software. It collects information from the video box and sensor and applies AI-based image reconstruction algorithms to generate tomographic ultrasound volumes with smart analysis tools to efficiently extract diagnostic information.
With this technology, users can now:
“Our company’s mission is to bridge the gap between ultrasound, as a safe and cost effective 2D imaging solution, and three-dimensional imaging technologies like CT and MR. With Piur tUS Infinity, we can offer the best of both worlds and generate 3D diagnostic information without the need to refer patients outside the ultrasound lab.”, says Robert Bauer, CTO of Piur Imaging. “The combination of Fujifilm VisualSonics and Piur Imaging technologies creates the industry’s first handheld, UHF, 3D ultrasound imaging technology. Together, the combined technologies are designed to streamline clinicians’ and researchers’ workflow by separating ultrasound acquisition from image analysis.”
Clinicians and researchers today can purchase Piur Imaging’s Piur tUS Infinity system as an add-on to the Fujifilm VisualSonics Vevo MD UHF ultrasound system in Europe. The Piur Infinity System is the subject of a pending 510(k), and is not available for sale within the United States. The Piur Infinity System is the subject of a pending medical device license application, and is not available for sale within Canada.
