The European patent office will grant another European patent for Episurf Medical.

"This is a comprehensive patent for protection in the field of 3D visualisation of joints. The image-based segmentation forms the basis for all Episurf Medical’s products, and this is a very exciting and rapidly growing field. This announcement from the EPO is thus great news for us. The patent complements Episurf Medical's patents within medical imaging with a broader protection,” said Katarina Flodström, COO, Episurf Medical.
