Stockholm, Sweden - March 14, 2017 -  ContextVision, a leading provider of medical imaging software specializing in image analysis and artificial intelligence, received a patent approval on a new technology for the visualization of the skeleton from 3D ultrasound. The patent was filed in 2014.


The technology is based on a visualization software and improves the potential for early discovery of skeletal irregularities in unborn babies.

This offers a unique product feature named SkeletalView which is integrated into ContextVision's groundbreaking 3D rendering product, REALiCE, which is commercially available.

SkeletalView enables the clinicians to obtain a more accurate view of the fetal skeleton during pregnancy. This product feature helps the clinicians examine the fetus for spontaneous fractures and skeletal malformations. It also facilitates the measurement of bone structures.
