Claritas HealthTech

Singapore, 30 January 2021 – Singapore-based Claritas HealthTech Pte. Ltd. (“Claritas”), is pleased to announce that the company’s image enhancement software product for radiology, namely, iRad has been registered with Health Canada as a Class 1 Medical Device. The company has received its MDEL (Medical Device Establishment License) license number of 15964.

Claritas iRAD is based on the company’s ‘novel’ image enhancement algorithm that can enhance images with high precision, making visible the dim and hard to see features, whilst retaining the finer details of the image. iRAD is unique in its method of enhancement as it reveals the finer anatomical details that are obscured by noise suppression, and at the same time maintains the authenticity of the image by ensuring there are no distortions or exaggerations introduced.

Claritas is a health tech company developing software solutions that enable doctors and physicians to make accurate diagnoses and improve their patient lives with enhanced medical image processing and AI assisted diagnosis and interpretation. Claritas conducts research and development in the fields of image enhancement, Machine Vision (MV), and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

With Claritas HealthTech registered with an MDEL License under Health Canada, this enables the company to forge research collaborations with universities and medical institutions in Canada, in much the same way, as the company is progressing in Singapore, with collaborations with academia and industry.
