July 27, 2007 - Advanced Image Enhancement Inc., a provider of optimized image enhancement solutions for digital radiology, announced that the firm has entered into a licensing agreement with Hologic, agreeing that AIE will provide its image enhancement software for Hologic's SecureView diagnostic mammography workstations.
AIE's proprietary image enhancement software, which leverages signal processing technology originally developed from Navy research to locate undersea mines, reportedly enables physicians to extract more information from medical images.
In 2005, AIE completed its second clinical pilot study utilizing its image enhancement technology on the Hologic digital mammography diagnostic workstation. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Newton-Wellesley Hospital and Faulkner Hospital reportedly concluded that the AIE software enhancement provided a significant advantage for improving clarity of abnormalities especially in dense breast tissue. AIE received approval from the FDA in September, 2006 to market the technology.
