Breakthrough Image Analysis: 3 Start-ups That Captivated Us at DMEA 2023

In the realm of computer-assisted image analysis, innovations are continually emerging. With cutting-edge technologies and groundbreaking algorithms, image analysis in medicine has the potential to revolutionize diagnostics, treatment planning, and patient care. At the DMEA 2023 fair in Berlin, punktum encountered exciting exhibitors in this field, including several start-ups. These companies are heralding a new era of healthcare.

Discover the three start-ups that particularly captivated us at DMEA.

Medical Image Analysis – What’s It All About?

In medicine, image analysis involves the computer-assisted examination of images such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds. By utilizing algorithms and modern technologies, diagnostic information is extracted and interpreted from these images. These technologies enable faster, more accurate, and automated analysis of medical images – the foundation for improved diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Image analysis is thus an essential tool in modern radiology.

Our DMEA Discoveries in the Field of Image Analysis:


mBits Imaging – Mobile Software for Fast, Secure Image Transfer

One of our DMEA discoveries is the Heidelberg-based start-up mBits imaging. The company specializes in developing advanced radiology software solutions for mobile devices. With their app, mRay, they deliver medical image data quickly, securely, and easily to mobile devices. This enables more rapid, targeted therapy decisions and facilitates seamless networking between clinics. mBits imaging provides healthcare providers with valuable insights, reduces time and effort required for image evaluation, and streamlines the diagnostic process.

Notably, mBits imaging was one of the first MedTech companies in Germany to be certified according to the new EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) as early as 2019.
