PIUR Imaging is a MedTech company that is active in diagnostic ultrasound imaging and specializes in the acquisition and visualization of 3D ultrasound images. The company's vision is to provide access to affordable AI-driven tomographic ultrasound solutions. Its solution, called PIUR tUS Infinity, turns any standard ultrasound system into a tomographic 3D imaging device — enabling true AI in ultrasound. With any conventional 2D ultrasound transducer, high-resolution tomographic images can be generated. While standard ultrasound requires on-the-spot assessment of the images, PIUR's 3D ultrasound volumes of entire structures or organs allow retrospective diagnosis at any time. In combination with smart analysis tools explicitly designed for the evaluation of thyroid and nodules, thyroid analysis becomes less operator-dependent and diagnostic workflows can be optimized.

Key people 🧑🤝🧑
- Tomographic imaging for everyone: PIUR tUS turns any standard ultrasound system into a tomographic imaging device, bridging the gap between 2D ultrasound and standard 3D imaging modalities. It enables 3D ultrasound imaging for various clinical applications, including vascular, thyroid, and nerve imaging.
- Infinity Video Box: The Infinity Video Box connects to any standard ultrasound system via digital video output such as HDMI or DVI. It transfers 2D ultrasound images to the Infinity Workstation via Wi-Fi in real time.
- Infinity Sensor: The Infinity Sensor can be clipped onto any linear ultrasound transducer using individually designed attachments. An inertial measurement unit tracks the orientation of the transducer during the scan and sends this information to the Infinity Workstation via Bluetooth.
- Infinity Workstation: The Infinity Workstation collects information from the Infinity Video Box and Sensor and applies AI-based image reconstruction algorithms to generate tomographic ultrasound volumes. Smartly designed tools allow quick and easy extraction and visualization of diagnostic information from the scan.
With tUS Infinity, PIUR IMAGING offers integration of software into newly built hardware from legacy device manufacturers. We see significant advantages of this kind of add-on compared to breakthrough technologies as ultrasound technology is globally accepted and understood. Therefore, the solution is easy to explain, and users can see the benefits right away. This makes PIUR very interesting from an investor's perspective: their sleek product meets market demand. The company has also established a sizeable customer base in the DACH region, closed distribution and cooperation agreements with reputable names from the ultrasound space and beyond, and the management team has a clear vision of which indications and geographies it wants to develop the business in.
