Mirada Solutions of Oxford, U.K., and Amersham Health have agreed to develop image analysis software to support the British pharmaceutical company's molecular diagnostic products. The software will draw from technology underlying Mirada's MiraView multimodality workstation to provide quantitative and reproducible methods of image analysis. Molecular imaging promises exact and sensitive information, leading to earlier and more accurate diagnoses-but only if the data can be quantified, according to the two companies. Although Mirada has established relationships with hardware manufacturers, this is its first with a company engaged primarily in pharmaceuticals.
