EchoPixel’s Virtual Anatomy Models FDA-Cleared for Diagnosis, Surgical Planning

Bernadette Tansey, Xconomy

Imagine you’re a surgeon steeling yourself to operate on a child’s defective heart. In the future, doctors like you might be able to do a fail-safe trial run by snipping through a 3D image of the patient’s faulty cardiac anatomy while it floats in mid-air above a desktop. That’s the ultimate goal for Mountain View, CA-based EchoPixel, a software startup that assembles data from 2D diagnostic scans and projects a three-dimensional map of an afflicted organ as a virtual reality image in open space.
