PoroUS securing a first round investment

News:
In cooperation with the Charité University in Berlin, PoroUS has made big progress executing it’s strategy to ultimately avoid osteoporosis in patients by diagnosing the early phase of increasing bone porosity. Bart Hendriks has been appointed CEO and hits the ground running, securing a first round investment of €250k.

The current shortcomings of ultrasound for bone imaging have been solved by the patented software developed by Porous GmbH. The intelligent algorithms overcome the limitations of ultrasound imaging in bone where waves are scattered making it impossible to analyze cortical bone micro structure. Porous GmbH solution uses quantitative ultrasound technology with patented intelligent algorithms being able to measure the cortical bone quality to a microscopic pore level without radiation hazard. Ultimately, Porous software can be bundled with existing devices, it can be operated by GP’s and will be much more accessible and cheaper for any patient.

About Porous
The shortcoming of ultrasound for bone imaging is the fact that it cannot give clear images when used in complex media, such as bone. That’s because the ultrasound waves bounce back in these complex environments, making it impossible to calculate how far they’ve traveled. In bone, sound waves will travel through the solid parts of the bone and then scatter whenever they hit a pore. This issue has been solved by the patented software developed by Porous GmbH.
