RapidMind Imaging Launches Add-Ons for Software Including Customizable Components

September 22, 2008—RapidMind, provider of the RapidMind Multi-core Development Platform, today launched the RapidMind Imaging Extensions, add-ons to the RapidMind platform that accelerate the development of applications such as those for medical imaging.

This solution is the first in a line of RapidMind Extensions that include customizable software components targeting specific verticals that in conjunction with the RapidMind platform can be used to quickly build applications for multi-core processors and accelerators. The RapidMind Imaging Extensions are already being used to help healthcare companies deploy applications including image reconstruction from CT scans and ultrasound, as well as image analysis of ultrasound data.

One such company, Medipattern Corp. is using RapidMind in its B-CAD system to leverage the performance of multi-core CPUs while simultaneously exploiting acceleration available from a Graphics Processor Unit (GPU)—achieving an 8 times performance increase. B-CAD V1 is reportedly the first FDA certified computer-aided detection system for breast ultrasound imaging. B-CAD automatically analyses the physical characteristics of ultrasound images, helping physicians characterize each lesion. B-CAD helps improve accuracy, increases confidence, and reduces transcription costs for the physicians caring for the millions of women who undergo breast ultrasound procedures every year.

By improving the speed and quality of medical imaging, there is the potential to reduce a patient’s exposure to radiation, reduce treatment costs, and offer the opportunity to provide new kinds of health care.
