Helsinki-based medtech company Disior specialises in converting CT and MRI images into mathematical models and numerical analysis. The company has developed a cloud-based 3D analytics software for doctors. This software automatically analyses, quantifies, and parameterises medical images. It quickly provides objective data for both patient diagnosis and treatment outcome assessment.
Raises €1.7M funding
In a recent development, Disior announced that it has raised €1.7M funding from Maki.vc and Tesi alongside existing investors. This investment will support the commercialisation of its newly CE-marked product Bonelogic Ortho Foot and Ankle. The 3D analytics software of Disior will be used by doctors across the world to improve patient care and outcome from medical images.
The fresh round of funds will be used to facilitate further development of the existing products of Disior along with new ones. This will open up new use cases within orthopedics and automated surgery planning. The company develops a product with neurosurgery applications via an existing collaboration with Augmedit, a Dutch company that specialises in the creation of AR/VR tools meant for surgeons.
“The diagnostic imaging market is a huge one, as medical images account for up to 90% of all medical data. Despite significant improvements in X-ray, MRI, and CT scan technologies, doctors still analyze these images using 2D slices – we like to say it’s like doctors examining medical images with one eye only,” Disior CEO Anna-Maria Henell explains.
“The new normal affects many industries, but medtech for sure is one that calls for more efficient and scalable solutions. Disior brings major technological advancements to medical verticals that have thus far been underserved,” says Ilkka Kivimäki, Managing Partner at Maki.vc.
Disior scales rapidly
Founded by Anna-Maria Henell, Sakari Soini, Risto Kontio, and Goncalo Barreto in 2016, Disior has scaled rapidly and its technologies are used in several leading hospitals across the world. It has nearly doubled its customer count by working with institutions such as the University of Iowa, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, UPMC Pittsburgh, and Turku University Hospital.
The growth of this medtech startup has been further accelerated by its product that is CE-marked. The Bonelogic Ortho Foot and Ankle product was launched in June this year. The continued growth of the company seems likely as they struck a distribution deal with Planmed, a global medical imaging equipment provider. The company is in the process of securing FDA approval to help them bring their technology to the US markets.
