Sonic Incytes Medical Corp. is an excellent example of a company taking key steps toward achieving its commercial potential,” said Thealzel Lee, Senior Partner, Rocket Builders.

“It’s a great honour to be recognized by Rocket Builders for the second year in a row,” said George Aliphtiras, CEO, Sonic Incytes Medical Corp. “Fatty liver disease is an emerging health crisis that affects 1 in 4 people worldwide and, with FDA clearance of VelacurTM, we’re excited to offer health care practitioners a breakthrough, point of care ultrasound solution to address this problem.”
