Confirma, Guardian to Jointly Develop MRI Solutions

April 27, 2007 - Guardian Technologies International, Inc., a security and healthcare imaging solutions company, announced that it has signed a collaboration and strategic alliance agreement with Confirma, Inc., a developer of computer-aided detection (CAD) for magnetic resonance imaging, in which both parties will collaborate on the design, development and commercialization of radiology imaging solutions for new clinical applications.

Confirma’s CAD system, CADstream, has applications for breast MRI. Guardian provides a patent-pending Signature Mapping technology for tissue characterization and advanced visualization and image analysis. Early research has reportedly found the Guradian’s technology to be promising in prostate MRI studies and CT brain scans. In the strategic alliance, the two companies will analyze the most effective delivery of the combined technologies through Confirma's distribution channels.
