InnerVision Medical Technologies Develops Ultrasound Device to Image Morbidly Obese
Date:9/11/2013

Calgary, Alberta, and Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013

InnerVision Medical Technologies, Inc., a developmental-stage company engaged in research and development of high-resolution ultrasound systems, today announced completion of its prototype ultrasound device and early evaluation results for imaging morbidly obese patients. The ultrasound system offers encouraging results, as the ultrasound signals are able to penetrate the abdomen deep enough to provide improved diagnostic quality images for patients with a body mass index (BMI) well above 50. (For reference, a 6-foot-5-inch, 450-pound person has a BMI of 53.4.)

InnerVision’s announcement comes soon after the American Medical Association’s (AMA) official classification of obesity as a disease, requiring a range of medical interventions to advance obesity treatment and prevention.

According to leading industry analyst Harvey Klein, Ph.D., president of Klein Biomedical Consultants, “This new technology shows promise in allowing for a greater number of obese patients to be scanned by ultrasound, thus avoiding the more costly computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures for this patient population.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 36 percent of American adults are obese, and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 10-30 percent of adults in the European Union are obese.

“We are thrilled with the early results from our clinical evaluations, specifically within the morbidly obese population,” said Bhaskar
