Imaging Biometrics gains the right to develop and commercialize technology that may lead to an automated way of more accurately evaluating a tumor's response to various treatment therapies, according to the Elm Grove, WI-based firm. The technology, developed by Jay Udupa, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, "standardizes" images on a voxel-to-voxel basis to enable accurate comparison of images over time, Imaging Biometrics said.
The company believes the technology may make it unnecessary for radiologists to perform time-consuming manipulations to make image brightness levels more similar over time. And when automated, the technique may reliably remove subjective and intra- and interscanner variability when monitoring patients with tumors, Imaging Biometrics said.
