The novosound vision

To become the world leader in the development and supply of low-cost, high resolution ultrasound sensors, systems and software for imaging and measurement applications.

Ultrasound images have a reputation for being difficult to understand, just ask anyone who's been shown the standard black and white fuzzy image of an unborn baby!

Novosound is set to revolutionise the ultrasound industry by developing systems that capture ultrasound images at the quality of MRI without the cost. This is down to our use of novel thin film, printable technologies rather than conventional piezoelectric materials.

We have engaged with customers in multple markets including medical, dental, industrial NDT, vetinary and aerospace.
