Leveraging cutting-edge quantum detectors to design light and portable MRI machines working at ultra-low magnetic fields for 1/5th of the cost
Chipiron builds a light and portable MRI machine that will be 10x smaller and cheaper than traditional ones. Their mission is to make MRI accessible to all.
Despite being the best medical imaging technique, MRI is is too expensive and cumbersome because of the magnetic fields’ intensity.
Chipiron uses quantum sensors called SQUID to produce images at an ultra-low field. This allows them to remove the huge superconductor magnets – where all the problems stem from.
They have signed for €45M of LOIs, prestigious partnerships and already have 25% of their round closed by radiologists.
