Sound Intelligence

The story of EchoNous (ek-koh-nohs) begins in Redmond, Washington with its founding in 2016 by point-of-care ultrasound pioneer Kevin Goodwin and Dr. Niko Pagoulatos, a recognized innovator in cutting-edge ultrasound and bioengineering.

The name EchoNous not only honors Dr. Pagoulatos’ Greek heritage, translating in the English language to mean intelligent sound — with “echo” meaning sound and “nous” meaning intelligence. But this name also embodies the team’s vision of adding the emerging field of artificial intelligence (AI) with the extreme miniaturization of ultrasound to help solve common everyday problems in healthcare.
