Calgary Scientific Inc.

Location: Calgary, Canada
Founded: 2004
Product: Visualization platform for medical imaging software

Calgary Scientific develops technology for the medical industry. The healthcare sector has high demands for access, visually rich data, privacy and security. Calgary Scientific makes it possible for physicians to view medical images of data collected by MRI, CT and X-ray on their iPhone or any other device that has web browser access. The company also offers advanced 3D visualization of this data. Physicians use this medical imaging data to diagnose, treat and monitor diseases such as heart disease, stroke and cancer, as well as for acute care scenarios when time is critical. Using mobile devices, there is no compromise to speed, functionality or performance of data when compared to traditional dedicated hospital workstations. Since the data is only a virtualized image and never physically copied or downloaded, it is always kept safe. Through its new division, PureWeb, the company is expanding its technology into other industries to get traditional enterprise server and workstation based software quickly transformed to web, cloud and mobilized apps.
