MELBOURNE, Australia, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 4Dx has publicly released preliminary clinical study data at the prestigious World Lung Imaging Workshop at the University of Pennsylvania. Founder and CEO, Dr. Andreas Fouras, was invited to deliver the latest data to world leaders in lung imaging and pulmonary medicine. This globally recognised event brings together leaders at the forefront of the industry to present and share the latest developments in lung imaging.
"The quality of the imaging is spectacular," said Debiao Li, PhD, Director of the Cedars-Sinai Biomedical Imaging Research Institute and Professor of Biomedical Sciences at Cedars Sinai where the study is being conducted. "This technology will give us unique capabilities."
4Dx's software technology provides accurate and sensitive data with a unique 4-dimensional perspective to clinical practitioners, and has been extensively validated in pre-clinical studies. The technology has the potential to provide more information, and faster validation of treatment with reduced exposure, while also allowing for earlier detection of disease.
The announcement of these results by 4Dx, demonstrates compelling evidence of the leap from the laboratory to the clinic, opening the door for huge market potential as 4Dx continues to engage with leading U.S hospitals.
4Dx technology enables clinicians to capture images that effectively visualise and quantify motion of airflow at high resolution within the breathing lungs. Within the $1.4 trillion respiratory healthcare sector, there are 162 million respiratory diagnostics procedures performed each year, for a clearly identified $30 billion per annum addressable market.
The public announcement of preliminary clinical data at this prestigious event is a huge milestone for the company, with 4Dx expecting increased interest from key clinical groups as well as investors.
Founder and CEO Andreas Fouras says, "We are extremely thrilled to have been given the opportunity to present data that shows the potential of our technology to change the lives of millions through earlier and better informed intervention."
