Sensant Corp.

Founded in 1998, Sensant Corp is leading the development and commercialization of Silicon Ultrasoundâ„¢ diagnostic imaging technology, a silicon-based transducer technology for improved 2D and 3D ultrasound imaging.

Silicon Ultrasound uses micro electro-mechanical systems or MEMS technology to provide a revolutionary platform for advanced medical imaging systems. Silicon Ultrasound provides improved 2D imaging and is the enabling technology for future innovations in ultrasound such as real-time true volumetric imaging and improved visualization of tumors using ultrasound contrast agents.

Such advances will provide physicians with more informative images and will help them reach a diagnosis quickly and more simply.

Sensant Corp was acquired by Siemens in June 2005
