Finnish medical software creator Disior has received a capital boost for its novel way to analyse and model bone fractures and soft tissue.

The funding came from Maki.vc and pre-seed investors. Disior has developed a conversion tool that cuts down the processing time from weeks to minutes. Compatible with all 3D imaging technology formats, the tool offers doctors a completely new way to obtain information from medical images.

“We want to bring doctors the best possible software tools,” says Anna-Maria Henell, Disior CEO, in a press release. “Today, this means getting better data, faster. In the future, this type of information – based on a model instead of an image, and fully objective – gives doctors the tools to develop better diagnostics and better treatment criteria, too.”

The solution addresses numerous key trends and development areas in medicine, including patient-specific, patient-optimised treatment, computational analysis as a treatment decision tool, and improvements to the hospital efficiency and cost of care.

The technology also avoids the problems of image-recognition-based data, thus opening new opportunities to use AI.
