Olea Medical Wins FDA 510(k) Clearance for Olea Sphere Medical Imaging Software

  (July 13, 2012)

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 13, 2012

Olea Medical, a Marseilles, France and Boston, Mass.-based medical technology developer, has obtained FDA 510(k) clearance to market its Olea Sphere medical imaging enterprise software package in the US.

Designed to run on Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems, Olea Sphere provides display, analysis and post-processing functionality for viewing MRI, CT scan and other medical images, such as perfusion weighted or diffusion weighted images. Using Olea Sphere, medical professionals can not only view but also manipulate and process MRI and CT images. Olea Medical obtained FDA 510(k) clearance with assistance from Austin, Texas-based medical device consultancy Emergo Group.

It seemed important to us to benefit from the expertise of a specialist in the medical device regulatory field, Fayçal Djeridane, President and CEO of Olea Medical, explains. Such an approach usually helps us gain a lot of time with 510(k) file submissions.

Olea Medical chose to partner with Emergo Group due to the consultancys reputation and high level of expertise. Emergo Group consultants have worked with the FDA on many 510(k) files, so they definitely have the appropriate skills to lead successful submissions, says Djeridane. They know exactly the FDAs expectations and point of view. The result of our investment in teaming with Emergo Group was that we got our 510(k) clearance without delays.

The FDAs 510(k) premarket notification process can be complex and labor-intensive for US-based as well as foreign manufacturers alike, says Fabio De Pasquale, senior consultant at Emergo Group. By choosing Emergo Group to provide US FDA registration assistance, Olea Medical was able to bring an innovative medical technology to market in the US quickly and straightforwardly, with no complications.
