Exo, a medical imaging software and device company, unveiled the Exo Iris, a handheld ultrasound device designed to put high-performance medical imaging into the hands and pockets of caregivers. 

Built on Exo’s advanced silicon technology, Exo Iris delivers versatile imaging performance for point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) at a fraction of the size and cost of cart-based systems. It is the latest addition to Exo’s ecosystem, which combines imaging, workflow software, and artificial intelligence (AI) to enable POCUS adoption at a system-wide scale. 

Designed around the caregiver, Exo Iris blends a simple user experience with powerful, real-time AI. The company’s patented SweepAI technology automatically acquires images with a sweep of the caregiver’s wrist, reducing operator dependence and bias to ensure consistent and accurate imaging.

Exo Iris comes equipped with Exo’s Bladder AI solution to help caregivers determine bladder volume in seconds. Exo has a suite of additional AI solutions coming soon, including FDA 510k-pending advanced Cardiac and Lung AI suites that provide real-time guidance and answers for caregivers to quickly and accurately diagnose, triage, and monitor heart and pulmonary conditions.

“Exo Iris is so remarkably simple to pick up and use—the entire ecosystem is built around the POCUS user and how they want to work,” said Arun Nagdev, MD, senior director of clinical education at Exo. “Exo Iris delivers an entirely new approach to the design of ultrasound; one that doesn’t look at ultrasound as a device-only purchase, but seamlessly brings together a complete solution that includes imaging, workflow, and real-time AI in one platform.”

Exo’s silicon architecture allows for rapid imaging quality evolution and delivers real-time AI capabilities where every frame can be analyzed to guide the user to an immediate answer.

Exo Iris allows caregivers to scan all major organs and guide IVs and line procedures. In addition, caregivers have access to features like ultra-wide field of view for imaging up to 150 degrees, allowing them to capture an entire liver or full-body fetus in a single view.

Hospitals can easily connect Exo Iris to existing healthcare IT systems for compliance and storage, whether it be their PACS or VNA. They can also store exams on Exo’s secure cloud environment. Additionally, Exo Iris can function without an internet connection, making it essential for caregivers in rural settings and in mobile response. It comes equipped with Exo’s point-of-care ultrasound workflow solution, Exo Works, to document and review exams in seconds from anywhere. 

The Exo Iris platform is HITRUST, HIPAA, SOC2 Type II compliant, and ISO 27001 certified to assure IT departments of data protection and regulatory compliance.
