Esaote International NV and Pie Medical Imaging acquire 3mensio

4 April 2011

Esaote International NV is taking over 3mensio Medical Imaging BV to expand its leading role in healthcare information technology. 3mensio has merged with Pie Medical Imaging BV (PMI), a company of the Esaote group.

“PMI and 3mensio have a shared vision on how to develop highly innovative technological software solutions to support health care providers. With 3mensio and its 3D/4D visualization technology we will be able to accelerate the realization of the tools that our customers need for optimal treatment of their patients,” said Boudewijn Verstraelen, CEO of PMI.

“We believe that our opportunities for continued growth and expansion will be best realized through the additional scale and resources that Pie Medical Imaging and the Esaote group can provide,” said Frank Wessels, 3mensio’s founder and CTO, who will continue to lead the technical team.

Paul Sysmans, who will remain involved as consultant to the management following the acquisition, states “the combined expertise of the companies in CT, MRI, US and X-Ray will lead to new business in the interventional workflow from pre-op planning, assistance during the intervention, to post-op analysis.”

According to René Guillaume, Director Sales and Marketing of PMI, “3mensio’s products and expertise in advanced visualization and procedure planning tools will complement PMIs' portfolio of renowned software products. Together, we will be able to offer a comprehensive set of cardiovascular solutions meeting the needs of physicians, allowing them to deliver the best quality of healthcare possible to their patients.“
