Melbourne, Australia, 20 February, 2017: Dr. Andreas Fouras, founder and CEO of medical technology company 4Dx Limited, will present preliminary clinical data at the prestigious World Lung Imaging Workshop on the 2nd of March at the University of Pennsylvania.
The software technology developed by 4Dx provides richer information, allowing for earlier detection of respiratory related disease. Dr. Fouras, who founded the company in 2012, says that “presenting the first 4Dx in human clinical data is a great milestone for the company and we are excited to share these results to many of the world’s leading lung imaging experts at such a prestigious event”.
4Dx technology enables clinicians to capture images that effectively visualise and quantify motion of airflow at high resolution within the breathing lungs. Currently more than 162 million respiratory diagnostic procedures are performed each year, at a cost of $25 billion per annum.
4Dx limited currently has a range of formal engagements with some of the leading institutions across the United States and is moving rapidly towards a commercial product in the United States by 2018.
