A Midwest medical device startup is looking to raise $2 million for its computer aided diagnostic imaging technology that measures and visualizes tissue motion using ultrasound. UltraSound Medical Devices Inc., which does business under the name Epsilon Imaging, develops products with its proprietary TissueTrack technology that uses algorithms along with the natural acoustic patterns, or “speckles,” in ultrasound images to precisely track tissue motion in 2-D. This technique is useful in earlier detection and more accurate diagnosis of cardiac conditions that include coronary artery disease and heart failure, and vascular conditions like stroke, diabetes, renal failure and peripheral artery disease, the company says.
