Kent Imaging Inc. Receives Health Canada Approval on SnapshotNIR v3.0

Kent Imaging has announced Health Canada’s approval for SnapshotNIR V3.0 (KD204) – now available for shipping in both official languages. This upgrade provides significant feature enhancements to the imaging technology that advances tissue assessment in acute and chronic wounds. The multitude of features include the ability to image most skin tones (overcoming the melanin barrier), linear and surface area wound measurements, easy report generation with image comparisons, and enhanced patient file management, to name a few.

“As a firmly Canadian company, we are excited to release this enhanced version of SnapshotNIR into the country. This is another critical step in our goal of delivering effective wound care and surgical solutions to care providers and improving patient outcomes,” says Pierre Lemire, Kent’s CEO. “The updates to SnapshotNIR V3.0 will make it easier and faster than ever to bring critical real-time and point-of-care data to the treatment path.”

SnapshotNIR utilizes near-infrared light to determine tissue oxygen saturation (StO2), which is a key indicator of tissue health. Ideal for microcirculation assessment, it conveys a comprehensive picture of the healing capacity of wounds or surgical tissue. This critical information is used to support clinical judgment in choosing, evaluating, and tracking treatment and surgical options throughout the care continuum … read more

Kent Imaging Inc. and SerenaGroup announce Partnership in wound care

CALGARY, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – Kent Imaging Inc. and SerenaGroup® today announced a Strategic Partnership to jointly improve tissue assessment in wounds with the use of Near Infrared Imaging technology using Kent’s KD203 device.


Oxygenation is widely accepted as the best biomarker of tissue health and healing. Kent’s device is intended for use by healthcare professionals as a non-invasive tissue oxygenation measurement system that reports oxygen saturation (StO2), relative oxyhemoglobin level (HbO2), and relative deoxyhemoglobin (Hb) level in superficial tissue. Kent’s multispectral imaging technology displays two-dimensional color-coded images providing critical information to help clinicians determine at risk tissue and guide treatments to optimize patient outcomes in wound care, plastic surgery, and various other reconstructive applications.


This is a great partnership between one of the leaders in building wound care teams and an innovative tissue assessment technology that is easy to use, convenient, and cost effective. SerenaGroup® will adopt Kent Imaging’s technology as the standard of care for assessing wound oxygenation thus wound health. Kent will be integrated into each of the SerenaGroup® managed facilities, included in Hyperbaric training courses curriculum, as well as included in future clinical and preclinical research.


“We are pleased to introduce Kent’s imaging system into the wound care protocol at our clinics. One of the most troublesome and elusive criteria in treating wounds is the timely and accurate assessment of viable tissue.” said Dr. Serena MD FACS FACHM MAPWCA, Founder and Medical Director of The SerenaGroup®. “Kent’s device will propel us a long way down the healing path with a technology that has been lacking across the board in the Wound Care space. ”
