ContextVision was established in 1983, by a specialist research team at the University of Linköping in Sweden. The university was a center for digital image analysis with a history of spearheading research in this area since the 1970s. The technology fast proved to be of great value in many different application areas such as remote sensing, graphics and microscopy.
The breakthrough within the medical field came in 1987, when the company signed its first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement. The power of the methodology in enhancing medical applications such as MRI imaging was striking. Since then, ContextVision has sealed a series of OEM agreements with various medical companies specializing in areas such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and contrast agents.
In 1997, ContextVision was listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange in Norway.
The company has its R&D premises in Linköping, corporate sales and marketing in Stockholm and local representation in the US, China and Korea.
