    Breakthrough 3D Imaging Company Offers a New Approach to Surgical Planning and Imaging Diagnostics, Advancing Patient Care With Lifelike Virtual Reality of Patient Anatomy

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 21, 2016) –

    EchoPixel announced today that its breakthrough medical imaging solution is now available to clinical users in collaboration with the HP Zvr Interactive Virtual Reality Display and workstation. The HP Zvr, powered by zSpace technology, and the HP Z440 Workstation are customized to EchoPixel’s True 3D Viewer cleared regulatory requirements, providing a turnkey solution for both diagnostic imaging and surgical planning.

    The True 3D system is a powerful new tool for doctors to make reading medical images more intuitive, help physicians reach their diagnosis, and assist in the planning of complex surgical procedures. The partnership will capitalize on EchoPixel’s exciting progress in the study of new clinical applications at prominent beta test sites, and HP’s global relationships with medical institutions, to accelerate adoption of virtual reality technology in the medical imaging field.23

    Using True 3D, physicians can view and interact with images gathered from CT and MR data the way they would with real physical objects. The system enables radiologists, cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, and interventional neuroradiologists (among others) to see patient-specific anatomy in an open 3D space.

    “I believe our partnership with HP will be a formative moment in the development and distribution of virtual reality in the medical imaging space,” said Ron Schilling, CEO of EchoPixel. “HP has a long record of leadership in this industry, a strong network of partnerships, and a powerful commitment to their customers. We believe that virtual reality is the next revolution in medical imaging, and with our FDA cleared system, together we can deliver this technology into hospitals, clinics, and medical schools around the world.”

    Since its market introduction in March 2015, EchoPixel’s True 3D has generated excitement in the medical imaging community, with its promise to transform the ways that doctors work, students learn, and patients understand their unique anatomy. It is being used in clinical, educational, and research settings around the world, including the University of California, San Francisco, Stanford, the Cleveland Clinic, the Lahey Clinic, and the Hershey Medical Center, among others.

    “Our customers rely on HP to help transform lives through innovative solutions,” said Reid Oakes, senior director, Worldwide Healthcare, HP Inc. “By working with valued partners like EchoPixel and leveraging emerging technologies like virtual reality, we can rethink how technology can blend the physical and digital worlds to change the face of healthcare.”
