Cedara Partners with Leading Oncology Hospital

May 24, 2007 - Cedara Software, a medical software developer, today announced a strategic partnership with University Health Network’s Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH), in which Cedara will provide PMH with a variety of clinical applications, software development toolkits and services to accelerate the hospital’s research and development efforts in oncology and radiation therapy.

This encompasses distributed information management based on Cedara aXigate, web-enabled image management by Cedara I-Reach, Cedara OpenEyes’ rapid application development platforms and toolkits for image segmentation and image registration.

PMH hopes that the Cedara technology will help accelerate its development plans for cancer treatment assessment techniques, particularly the extension of small animal research into treatment strategies for use on human patients. One example of this is STTARR, or Spatio-Temporal Targeting and Amplification of Radiation Response. This effort, chaired by Dr. Robert Bristow, Dr. David Jaffray and Dr. Michael Milosevic, is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary radiation therapy research program.
“There is an increasing amount of medical imaging and diagnostic information available to us for cancer assessment. The future of oncology treatment lies in understanding the relationships between a variety of diagnostic information sources, treatment methods and resulting outcomes,” said Dr. David Jaffray, PMH’s head of radiation physics. “One of our constant challenges is how to efficiently analyze cumulative results from all of these sources acquired over long periods of time. Cedara’s technology will allow us to create a digital environment to link diagnostic input through appropriate rules and models to define optimal treatment.”
