Echometrix, LLC is developing proprietary ultrasound technologies for use in orthopedic, sports medicine, and physical therapy applications. MRI is currently the only diagnostic tool capable of differentiating between soft tissue tears and strains, each of which requires its own course of treatment. MRI, however, is limited by its high cost, lack of portability, reduced availability, and inability to yield information on the functional status of tissues. Our lead product, Echosoft, is a standalone image processing software designed to evaluate the functional status of ligaments, tendons, and muscles from images captured using any standard ultrasound equipment. Echosoft utilizes the acoustoelastic properties of tendons and other soft tissues to easily and accurately distinguish between injured and healthy tissue. The acoustoelastic properties of tissues combined with the proprietary algorithms in Echosoft enable detection of micro-mechanical defects that may go undetected in other i...

Echosoft utilizes the acoustoelastic properties of tendons and other soft tissues to easily and accurately distinguish between injured and healthy tissue. The acoustoelastic properties of tissues combined with the proprietary algorithms in Echosoft enable detection of micro-mechanical defects that may go undetected in other imaging modalities, like MRI or conventional B-mode diagnostic ultrasound. Therefore, Echosoft can better direct treatment based on a differential diagnosis of “strained” or “torn” tissue, which no other product on the market can offer, saving costs and speeding recovery.
