The idea to build up Esaote originally came from prof. Carlo Castellano, who at the end of 1970’s promoted a new project for Ansaldo (IRI Finmeccanica Group), Genoa, in the biomedical electronics sector, which grew into Esaote.
Esaote was founded in 1982 just as a start-up.
The experience gained within Ansaldo at the beginning of the company activity and a very clear vision of the technological as well as socio-economical prospects that could be opened in the field of electromedical devices inspired Esaote engineers to immediately involve the medical scientific community so to turn their own technological expertise into innovative diagnostic tools.
The tight synergy coming from the continuous collaboration with clinicians, universities and health entities allowed Esaote to grow retaining the spirit in exploring new frontiers between science and technology.
Internationally recognized as a company that greatly contributes in innovating diagnostic imaging, leading to at the forefront solutions for diagnosis but also for prevention, today Esaote is looking also at the field of therapy. A horizon that has been opened only after establishing a solid position in the market and through an in-depth knowledge of imaging.
