ImaSight wins US patent approval, finds manufacturer

ImaSight Inc., a developer of digital radiography technologies, has its US patent application allowed – a critical step towards gaining a foothold for the digital x-ray sensor in the North American market. The ImaSight4600 converts x-rays into four distinct light wavelengths that, manipulated by mirrors and lenses, create a sharp image. Since introducing the ImaSight4600 sensor earlier this year, the Gatineau-based startup has focused on ensuring that the x-ray technology exceeds the required specifications for both quality and manufacturing costs. According to the company, the ImaSight4600, which recently underwent beta testing at Ottawa’s Westboro Animal Hospital, “now meets the quality standards of even high-priced hospital digital x-ray systems.” The imaging product recently found an OEM manufacturer and distributor in Elmsford, NY-based AFP Imaging Corporation. Under the terms of the non-exclusive deal, AFP will manufacture and sell digital x-ray systems based on the ImaSight4600 sensor for the North American veterinary market. ImaSight says that there are approximately 23,000 film-based veterinary x-ray systems in North America today that are candidates for replacement with its digital sensor.
