Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM: IUG), the ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) software and simulation company, announces that a 30 minute presentation featuring the company's AI software will be given on the 18th April 2021, at the 17th International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynaecology ("ISUOG") virtual international symposium. The presentation, entitled "Scan demonstration: Role of AI in obstetric imaging", will be delivered by Professor Aris Papageorghiou.
Aris is a Professor of Fetal Medicine at Oxford University. He combines his academic research with clinical practice at St George's Hospital in London and is an expert in fetal medicine and obstetric ultrasound; non-invasive and invasive prenatal diagnosis; and fetal therapy. He has a long standing interest in how machine learning can enhance ultrasound, and with fellow AI specialist, Professor Alison Noble, co-founded Intelligent Ultrasound Limited in 2004.
Nicholas Sleep, CTO of Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc, commented: "Aris has been a driving force in the development of AI in fetal scanning and the ISUOG symposium will provide a great opportunity to showcase how Intelligent Ultrasound's AI software is being used in clinical practice."

About Intelligent Ultrasound Group
Intelligent Ultrasound (AIM: IUG) develops artificial intelligence-based clinical image analysis software tools for the diagnostic medical ultrasound market and hi-fidelity virtual reality simulators for the ultrasound training market. Based in Cardiff in the UK and Atlanta in the US, the Group operates two divisions:
Clinical AI Division
Focusses on developing deep learning-based algorithms to make ultrasound machines smarter and more accessible. Products in the market include ScanNav Assist, which uses machine-learning based algorithms to automatically identify and grade ultrasound images. GE Healthcare's SonoLyst software on their Voluson SWIFT ultrasound machine incorporates the ScanNav Assist AI technology and has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for sale in the USA. SonoLyst is the world's first fully integrated AI tool that recognises the 20 views recommended by the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology mid-trimester practice guidelines for fetal imaging.
Products in development include ScanNav Anatomy PNB, which aims to simplify ultrasound-guided needling by providing the user with real-time AI-based anatomy highlighting software for a range of medical procedures. ScanNav Anatomy has been submitted for CE and FDA regulatory approval.
Focusses on hi-fidelity ultrasound education and training through simulation. Its three main products are the ScanTrainer OBGYN training simulator, the HeartWorks echocardiography training simulator and the BodyWorks Eve Point of Care and Emergency Medicine training simulator. To date over 1,000 simulators have been sold to over 600 medical institutions around the world.
