Researchers from the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) and the University of Sussex have jointly developed innovative and cost-effective medical imaging software (TexRAD) which helps clinicians manage important diseases such as cancer.
In April 2011 TexRAD entered into partnership with leading medical imaging companies, Imaging Equipment Limited www.imagingequipment.co.uk, Cambridge Computing Imaging Limited, and Miles Medical Pty Limited to form TexRAD Limited. The new company has been launched with a vision to be able to equip health care providers with accurate and efficient technology thus enhancing overall patient care and quality of service utilising heterogeneity analysis and texture analysis.
Nick Stevens, Managing Director of Imaging Equipment Limited said “With TexRAD, for the first time ever, we can derive ‘textures’ from routine diagnostic images and highlight anomalies not apparent to the human eye. “It can be employed as an ‘Imaging Biomarker’ for prognosis and treatment response in cancer patients. TexRAD is unique in being extremely easy to integrate within existing hospital imaging systems without the need for any hardware modifications.
