IBM, University of Washington to Demo Cell/B.E for Medical Imaging

March 30, 2007 � IBM and the University of Washington will focus on Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E) at the upcoming �Workshop on Solving Computational Challenges in Medical Imaging,� to show how next-generation technology currently featured in computer entertainment and video-processing platforms is driving advancements in medical imaging, including ultrasound.

Demonstrating the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E) processor in medical imaging applications, IBM Global Engineering Solutions and the University of Washington will reveal performance results utilizing Cell/B.E. for several compute-intensive image/signal processing algorithms. With the higher image quality and faster results achieved through the Cell/B.E., there is great potential for new, clinically beneficial applications not previously possible.

In addition to highlighting ultrasound applications, the workshop will focus on other computational challenges in medical imaging that can now be addressed through this new class of microprocessors.

The revolutionary Cell/B.E. is a breakthrough design featuring a central processing core based on IBM's industry-leading Power Architecture technology and eight synergistic processing elements (SPE). Cell/B.E. offers fast performance for computer entertainment and handhelds, virtual reality, wireless downloads, real-time video chat, interactive TV shows and other image intensive computing environments. The Cell/B.E. processor appears in products such as Sony Computer Entertainment�s PLAYSTATION 3 and Toshiba�s Cell/B.E. Reference Set, a development tool for Cell/B.E. products, as well as the IBM BladeCenter QS20. It is also embedded in custom Cell/B.E. based offerings from IBM Global Engineering Solutions.
