Delphinus Medical Technologies, a researcher and developer in advanced breast ultrasound technology, has announced that it is relocating its corporate headquarters from Plymouth Township, Mich., to Novi, Mich. this week. The new headquarters is nearly triple the size of its prior location, allowing Delphinus to expand its staff, dedicate more space to research and development and prepare for commercialization of SoftVue, a whole breast ultrasound system that allows physicians to image the entire breast for diagnostic imaging purposes.
The expansion is the latest in a recent series of achievements for the company. In December 2015, on the heels of an unprecedented Series C venture round of $40 million, Delphinus added two new senior-level advisors to its Board of Directors, as well as a new VP of quality and regulatory affairs.
Delphinus expects its new corporate headquarters to attract frequent visits from healthcare leaders, customers and vendors, so the company has focused on designing the facility to maximize functionality. One of the additions to the new facility will be a dedicated demonstration room that will allow the company to showcase SoftVue and image review to site visitors.
As an ultrasound technology, SoftVue offers the potential to not only assist physicians in finding more cancers, but also to reduce the false positive rates that have troubled other breast imaging techniques. SoftVue’s sophisticated design incorporates a circular ultrasound transducer featuring proprietary TriAD (triple acoustic detection) technology that is unique to medical imaging. This multi-dimensional advancement presents cross-sectional ultrasound slices through the entire volume of breast tissue, capturing not only reflected echoes in a 360-degree array, but also signals passing through the breast, depicting tissue characterization.
