Together we are stronger...

Working with a multi- disciplinary team of engineers, designers, developers, urologists, radiologists and patients we gain a diverse range of perspectives and turn those into meaningful insights. Taking the best of both worlds, we combine ultrasound with MRI and quality materials with user- centered design to create innovative imaging tools that simplify targeted biopsies and therapy.

A few guiding principles

Good design starts with form and function, great design embodies the principles upon which it is built. Informed by our end users, our products are designed around three key pillars:
target and arrow

Accuracy

Compared to ultrasound imaging, MRI can be considered the “Gold Standard” for detecting lesions. MRI-targeted biopsies with Fusion Bx lead to increased cancer detection rates by addressing 3 key sources of inaccuracy: prostate deformation, patient motion and registration.

Efficiency

Innovative technology doesn’t need to be complicated. Driven by end users, our 4-step guided workflow and semi-robotic arm eases the procedure for both physicians and patients.

Accessibility

Through rigorous testing and a fine attention to detail, we’ve developed a quality cost effective solution for fusion biopsies. Thoughtful engineering, multi- probe compatibility and accommodating customer service makes our system accurate, efficient and accessible to everyone. 

Introducing the Fusion Bx

Thoughtfully engineered, the Fusion Bx’s semi-robotic arm allows the probe to be maneuvered effortlessly, while maintaining consistent pressure on the prostate. With a freehand like motion and minimal prostate deformation, the Fusion Bx enables you to accurately locate and target suspicious regions of interest.

Fusion 101

Fusion biopsy technology combines previously taken MRIs with live ultrasound to improve the visibility of suspicious lesions in the prostate. This allows physicians to take fewer cores because lesions can now be targeted. Get to know more about fusion and the Fusion Bx.
