About Imaging3, Inc.
Imaging3, founded in 1993, has developed a patented medical imaging technology, called SafeScan™, that will produce 3D x-ray images, virtually in real time. The SafeScan technology will allow healthcare professionals to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures more quickly and accurately, resulting in higher throughput for the clinicians and fewer safety risks for the patient. In addition, Imaging3’s technology exposes patients to significantly less harmful radiation than current imaging technologies such as CT scans, which the company believes will allow scans to be used in more pediatric applications than are currently prescribed. The technology also allows for greater portability, easier installation, and a significantly reduced cost burden for the healthcare system overall. Imaging3 is planning to submit a 510K application to the FDA in order to gain approval to commercialize the SafeScan technology.
