ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ: NDRA), a pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), today announced the acceptance of a poster titled “Thermoacoustic assessment of fatty liver disease - an early clinical feasibility study” for presentation at the International Liver Congress™ 2023 hosted by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), taking place June 21-24 in Vienna, Austria.
“This presentation highlights the correlation between TAEUS measurements to the gold standard MRI-PDFF, and we are pleased this poster was accepted by Europe’s most prestigious liver conference. This small study was conducted prior to the implementation of our current software guidance tool that is designed to improve intra-operator consistency, yet the data make a compelling case of TAEUS’ potential to assess fatty liver disease non-invasively,” stated Michael Thornton, Chief Technology Officer of ENDRA. “This peer-reviewed abstract is the first of what we expect to be several presentations at scientific and medical conferences to document the TAEUS system’s capabilities. We look forward to continuing to publish and demonstrate the benefits of TAEUS among healthcare professionals.”

About ENDRA Life Sciences Inc.
ENDRA Life Sciences is the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), a ground-breaking technology being developed to visualize tissue like MRI, but at 1/50th the cost and at the point of patient care. TAEUS® is designed to work in concert with the more than 700,000 ultrasound systems in use globally today. TAEUS® is initially focused on the measurement of fat in the liver as a means to assess and monitor Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), chronic liver conditions that affect over two billion people globally, and for which there are no practical diagnostic tools. Beyond the liver, ENDRA is exploring several other clinical applications of TAEUS®, including visualization of tissue temperature during energy-based surgical procedures.
