Real Time Tomography recently signed an OEM software licensing agreement with im3D, an Italian company specializing in the designing, development, production and marketing of medical devices that aid in early diagnosis in medical imaging, to use Briona, Real Time Tomography’s 3D image reconstruction software, in im3D’s next-generation breast computer-aided detection (CAD) imaging products.
Real Time Tomography is a specialist provider of advanced image processing and reconstruction solutions for next-generation 2D and 3D imaging systems. In a statement, Alberto Bert, Ph.D., head of Research at im3D, said, “The Briona software’s main features of real-time reconstruction, high image quality, flexibility and ease-of-use make it an excellent platform for new feature development and product optimization.”
Designed for digital breast tomosynthesis or 3D mammography, Briona is 3D image reconstruction software based on the DRR technology and capable of delivering dynamic, on-demand image reconstruction with optimized image quality and spatial resolution. Real Time Tomography provides Briona as an OEM product to medical imaging systems manufactures. Benefits of the advanced 3D image reconstruction software inlcude higher level of image quality and lowered development costs as well as faster time to market thanks to its plug-and-play design.
Susan, CEO of Real Time Tomography, said, “We are extremely pleased that im3D has selected our Briona software for their CAD product development. We look forward to our continued collaboration and to working with im3D in the development of their future imaging products.”
The new OEM agreement between both companies will serve to further strengthen their already existing research initiatives. In 2012, im3D carried out a reader study for a detailed assessment of clinical benefits delivered by the Dynamic Reconstruction and Rendering (DRR) technology from Real Time Tomography. The study revealed that DRR’s enhanced image quality and dynamic capabilities could effectively enhance clinician confidence via greater diagnostic accuracy as opposed to conventional reconstruction and review options available for tomosynthesis.
