"The interim results of the MAESTRO study are promising and could help physicians reliably and safely assess suspicious masses to deliver optimal treatment for each patient," said Tom Umbel, CEO of Seno Medical Instruments. "We look forward to the delivery of the first Imagio OA/US systems in the Netherlands, UK and Germany early next year."

Final results from the MAESTRO study are expected to be announced in early 2017. Enrollment for a U.S. trial of more than 2,000 patients has been completed and results will be announced in the latter half of 2017.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.




Seno Medical's Imagio system co-registers and fuses opto-acoustics, a technology based on "light-in and sound-out," with diagnostic ultrasound - (OA/US). The opto-acoustic images provide a unique blood map in and around suspicious breast masses. Cancerous tumors grow relatively quickly and require significant amounts of blood and oxygen, so a network of blood vessels grows around cancerous masses. The Imagio OA/US breast imaging system provides real-time images of these networks and a map of relative oxygen-rich or oxygen-depleted blood. Unlike other functional fusion technologies, Imagio uses no x-rays (ionizing radiation) or injectable contrast agents or radio-isotopes to obtain its information, thereby reducing the patient's exposure to any potentially harmful aspects of imaging.


About Seno Medical Instruments, Inc.
Seno Medical Instruments, Inc. is a San Antonio, Texas-based medical imaging company committed to the development and commercialization of a new modality in cancer diagnosis: opto-acoustic imaging. Seno's Imagio breast imaging system fuses opto-acoustic technology with ultrasound to generate functional and anatomical images of the breast. The opto-acoustic images provide a unique color map in and around suspicious breast masses while the ultrasound provides a traditional anatomic image. Through the appearance or absence of the two hallmark indicators of cancer – angiogenesis and deoxygenation – Seno believes that Imagio images will be a more effective tool to help radiologists confirm or rule out malignancy than current diagnostic imaging modalities – without exposing patients to potentially harmful ionizing radiation (x-rays) or contrast agents. Seno's platform technology may also address other disease applications in organs other than the breast, as well as assessing other breast problems, such as early response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy or hormonal treatments of breast cancer.
