Intelligent Ultrasound Celebrates 20 Years of Innovation

1 July 2024: Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM: IUG), the ‘classroom to clinic’ ultrasound company specialising in AI software and simulation, is proud to announce its 20th anniversary this month.

Over the past two decades, the company has been at the forefront of developing advanced ultrasound training simulators and AI software, revolutionising the way medical professionals learn and practice ultrasound techniques.

Since its founding in 2004 at Cardiff University, Intelligent Ultrasound has become one of the world’s leading ultrasound training simulator companies, completing an IPO onto the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in 2014, expanding into clinical AI software with the acquisition in 2017 of Intelligent Ultrasound Ltd from the University of Oxford, and signing an exclusive agreement with GE HealthCare in 2019 for the use of its ScanNav AI technology to power their SonoLyst software on the Voluson Expert, Signature and SWIFT ultrasound machines.

Most recently, the company announced that a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation-backed study had acquired Intelligent Ultrasound’s ScanNav FetalCheck gestational age AI software for use in the largest ever trial looking at the use of aspirin in the prevention of pre-eclampsia in Africa.

Intelligent Ultrasound’s commitment to innovation and dedication to improving patient care was highlighted by its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, when it released a free ultrasound training module to help train frontline physicians to combat the virus.

As Intelligent Ultrasound looks to the future, it continues to focus on developing cutting-edge technologies that will enhance the capabilities of ultrasound practitioners worldwide and make medical ultrasound easier to learn and simpler to use.

Stuart Gall, CEO of Intelligent Ultrasound said: “Our journey over the past 20 years has been marked by a series of strategic partnerships, acquisitions, and product launches that have established us as a leader in the field of ultrasound simulation and ultrasound AI software. We remain dedicated to our mission of making ultrasound easier to learn, simpler to use and more accessible for all medical professionals.”
