Cedara collaborates with UCLA on cardiology system

Cedara Software is working with researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, to develop and implement a new medical imaging workstation for cardiology.

The system will be designed to provide a single source for capture, review, and analysis of multimodality cardiology images, including angiography, cardiac ultrasound, and MRI. This should enhance clinical decision-making and increase physician efficiency by facilitating data gathering, according to Toronto-based Cedara. The imaging software company, which demonstrated a prototype of this technology at the American Heart Association meeting last November, says no currently available technology allows cardiology images from different modalities to be reviewed on a single platform.

The market for cardiology imaging products is expected to reach $2.25 billion by 2003, according to industry analysts Frost & Sullivan.
