StoneChecker gets CE Mark for its kidney stone analysis software

StoneChecker, a U.K.-based medical software developer that is part of Flying Brands, said it has received a CE Mark for its software that analyzes kidney stones.

The medical imaging software provides a detailed analysis of kidney stones that gives physicians and clinicians critical information to formulate the most effective treatment for each patient, StockMarketWire reported.

The product uses a TexRAD developed algorithm to examine kidney stone heterogeneity and "texture" not visible to the naked eye, according to the company’s website.

The approval opens the door for StoneChecker to begin marketing the software across Europe. 

"Obtaining a CE mark for StoneChecker Software's first product comfortably before the end of the year target has been a significant accomplishment for the agile multidisciplinary Stone Checker team,” Trevor Brown, the CEO of Flying Brands, said in a statement. “I share the team's excitement as we prepare to approach the markets now available to us.”
