A PAN-CANADIAN NETWORK 

Creating the future
of image-guided therapy

Image-guided therapy (IGT) is the practice of using medical imaging to plan, perform, and evaluate medical interventions. Such therapies not only make procedures more precise and less invasive for patients, but also generate rich streams of data for clinicians. Given the advances in processing power and artificial intelligence, there is immense potential to leverage this data to improve clinical outcomes. The INOVAIT network was founded by the Sunnybrook Research Institute in order to unlock the power of IGT data by facilitating the integration of AI data handling into the industry’s most promising ventures.

We are INOVAIT

INOVAIT is a membership based national network with a strong industry focus that harnesses breakthroughs in image-guided therapy (IGT) and the power of digital systems, enhanced analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to advance medical imaging, diagnostics and deliver precision treatments.

By providing a platform to connect, educate, and invest in the sector’s brightest minds and most promising ventures, INOVAIT will grow Canada’s image-guided therapy industry into a global leader, ultimately improving patient outcomes and fueling economic development.

PulseMedica is laser-focused on tackling vitreoretinal diseases

The PulseMedica platform is a 3D image-guided therapy device that integrates powerful laser therapy, advanced medical imaging, and limitless machine learning (ML) for precision imaging and treatment of vitreoretinal disease. Vitreoretinal diseases exist within the clear gel (vitreous fluid) that fills the eye and retina at the back of the eye. PulseMedica’s device strives to automate the imaging and treatment process, enabling quick and precise disease targeting, thereby reducing the treatment time and reducing the risk of side effects and total time per patient, allowing for more patients to be treated each day.

Sonic Incytes is making liver screening more accessible 

Sonic Incytes, a Canadian artificial intelligence (AI)-assisted medical imaging company based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, is looking to change the way liver disease is screened and monitored globally. Their flagship, FDA cleared device, Velacur™, is revolutionizing the diagnosis and management of chronic liver disease. Their proprietary technology that grew into Velacur was originally developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
