October 29, 2015 — Mirada Medical Ltd, a medical imaging software company, and BTG plc, a global specialist healthcare company, announced a collaboration to develop dosimetry software solutions to optimize radioembolization therapy with TheraSphere.

The collaboration with BTG leverages our image processing expertise and highlights the importance of imaging for planning treatments.”
