Today, 4.7 billion people around the world lack access to medical imaging. Even in the developed world, price and lack of expertise are barriers that prevent access.
In 2011, Dr. Jonathan Rothberg, inventor of high-speed “Next-Gen” DNA sequencing, decided it was time for a change. He assembled a team of the best scientists and engineers across multiple industries to solve what was thought to be an unsolvable problem.
Five years later, we put ultrasound on a chip and created the world’s first whole-body imager for less than $2,000. Every healthcare provider now has access to an intuitive, powerful, whole-body medical imaging system that fits in their pocket. A fusion of semiconductors, artificial intelligence, and cloud technology has made it possible to create a ubiquitous imaging solution that is clinically significant and category defining.
