EchoPixel, Inc., a Mountain View, CA-based provider of a True 3D, an interactive virtual reality software solution that assists healthcare professionals in detailed interpretation of medical images, both for diagnosis and surgical planning, closed an $8.5m Series A financing.
The round was led by new investor Intel Capital with participation from Aurus Capital, Runa Capital, Harris & Harris Group, LAM Research and Binomial.

Led by Sergio Aguirre, founder and Chief Executive Officer, and Ron Schilling, PhD, Executive Chairman, EchoPixel provides the True 3D Viewer software which enables physicians and surgeons to see and interact with medical images the way they would with real, physical objects.
The system leverages existing DICOM image data to create life-size virtual reality objects, allowing physicians to move, turn, dissect, and cut open virtual patient specific anatomy.
True 3D is being used in clinical and research settings around the world, including the University of California, San Francisco, Stanford, the Cleveland Clinic, the Lahey Clinic, and the Hershey Medical Center, among others.
