About US

HURA has developed a novel CT technology which decreases radiation dose by
75% or greater without compromising image quality or clinical workflow.

OUR PURPOSE

HURA patented RADuction® technology will optimize patient safety and decrease radiation exposure for over 100 million CT Scans in the U.S. each year. Decreasing radiation exposure, particularly using dynamic perfusion imaging, is critically important for 1.2M heart attack and ~800K stroke scans each year.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to introduce a new CT method that will decrease radiation emissions, optimizing the functional capabilities of CT scanners. Decreasing radiation exposure will also drive significant increases in overall CT scanning, particularly in Cardiac, GI, Mobile, Pediatric, and Whole-Body imaging applications.

RADuction® TECHNOLOGY
The Standard Method, which degrades images (causing ‘streaking artifacts’) compromise diagnostic validity, which is a barrier to clinical use.

RADuction® does not degrade image quality at 75% dose reduction.

EXAMPLE
Marked improvement in RADuction® : Reconstructed brain images produced from CT scans with 25% of the standard dose.
Martin, et al. Medical Physics. 2018

RADuction® TECHNOLOGY

Pulsed and/or low dose X-ray radiation at pre-specified rotation angles, combined with innovative, patent-pending image reconstruction methods which preserve image quality and speed without compromising workflow.

75%+ REDUCTION

RADuction® technology enables 75% or greater CT radiation dose reduction with no change to image quality or clinical workflow.

IMAGE QUALITY

The Standard Method degrades images (causing ‘streaking artifacts’) compromise diagnostic validity. RADuction® does not degrade image quality at 75% or 87.5% dose reduction.

OEM METHODS

RADuction® is complimentary to existing OEM dose reduction techniques: It can be used in addition to existing OEM Methods to further decrease radiation exposure.

RADuction®

Decreases radiation exposure and likelihood of
radiation-related cancer & conditions.

Our BENEFITS

Hura technology will significantly decrease CT radiation doses. Disrupting the $8B+ CT scanner market and significantly reduce cancer treatment costs: 2% of cancer treatment is estimated at ~$3B/year.
