U.K.-based Mirada Solutions and R2 Technology of Sunnyvale, CA, have agreed to integrate R2's OmniCAD computer-assisted diagnosis platform with Mirada's Standard Mammogram Form (SMF) technology to create the next generation of CAD systems for mammography. SMF, described by the two companies as being intrinsic to the tissue characteristics of the breast, provides an optimal starting point to develop robust CAD applications, executives from the two companies said. SMF is a standardized representation of a mammogram computed from the image intensities (film or digital) and imaging parameters of the system used to acquire the image. The SMF standardization technology enables the optimization of mammograms acquired on different systems at different times for analysis, quantification, and display.
