Building 3D medical imaging software for clinicians

Disior is turning CT and MRI images into mathematical models and numerical analysis. Their 3D analytics software for medical doctors analyses, quantifies and parameterizes medical images. The software turns medical images into automated, objective data for patient diagnosis, treatment planning, and outcome assessment.

The Disior software helps doctors make better diagnoses and treatment decisions based on accurate, consistent, and comparable data – something that traditional and soon-to-be outdated methods can never match.

Making Medical Imaging Intelligent

In the next 5–10 years, artificial intelligence is likely to fundamentally transform the $30+ billion diagnostic imaging market by speeding up the clinical workflows, improving diagnostic quality and enabling personalized treatment. To date all commonly used medical imaging solutions produce a set of separate 2D pictures from various angles, leaving the responsibility of compiling the puzzle to the physician.

New technologies are urgently required to extract and reconstruct the data in a way that reduces human labor, lowers costs, and improves accuracy to benefit patients and physicians alike.

Disior's founders are Anna-Maria Henell and Sakari Soini

The story of Disior goes way back to Keilaniemi, the famous late headquarters of Nokia, where a group of top R&D engineers studied the mechanical properties and structural integrity of mobile phones. After leaving Nokia, two engineers, one medical doctor and a doctor in biomechanics joined forces to apply decades of experience in advanced engineering and mathematical modelling to revolutionize the medical image analysis needed for diagnosis and treatment.

Disior’s 3D analytics software is used by medical doctors in every continent

Over the past year, Disior has doubled its customer count working with institutions like the University of Iowa, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, UPMC Pittsburgh, and Turku University Hospital. This expansion was made possible through its extensive research collaboration efforts; currently collaborating with over 20 clinics globally. These collaborations have resulted in six published research papers, with a further 32 in preparation.

The CE mark approval

Disior's growth has been further accelerated by their latest CE-mark, which was awarded to their Bonelogic® Ortho Foot and Ankle product in June. Continued growth seems likely as they struck a distribution deal with global medical imaging equipment provider Planmed. And, the company is in the process of securing FDA approval to help them bring the technology to US markets.

Standing at the crossroads of medical and technology, we think a lot about finding the common language with clinicians — to have a profound understanding of what they need, want and see as possible
