Since 2007, Core Sound Imaging has been working with physicians, sonographers, and technologists to develop real solutions to real clinical challenges.

They talked. We listened. Together, we started a revolution in medical imaging.

We transformed manual data entry into automatic data population. Printing, scanning, and filing into secure cloud storage. Dictation and transcription into an intuitive, streamlined workflow available from any Internet-connected device.

We unchained physicians from the viewing station and put diagnostic-quality images and cine loops in their hands no matter where they are.

We designed for usability, engineered for performance, and built the Studycast system in the cloud for your convenience.

Even better, we made it flexible so you can configure it to meet your specific needs.

Through it all, we’ve been listening. Learning. Leading. Every step of the way.

The result?

A comprehensive, cost effective system that’s smart enough to keep up with the rapidly changing demands of the clinical environment.

Today, the Studycast system helps clinical practices, hospitals, and medical researchers in 49 US states and territories and 7 countries streamline their workflow, secure and archive their imaging data more efficiently, and spend more time with their patients.
