Bridging the Gap in Medical Imaging

January 17, 2008 | Mayo Clinic and IBM have expanded a 2006 collaboration with the creation of the Medical Imaging Informatics Innovation Center (MI3C) on the Mayo Clinic campus. The Center is using an image registration technology developed by Mayo and IBM that produces results 50 times faster than prior technologies. Each organization has devoted three researchers to direct investigations into medical imaging technologies, with the goal of eventually improving the quality of patient care.

"It's difficult to take good ideas and produce products out of them. There is always this intermediate step of: Does that idea pan out in practice?" said Bradley Erickson, chair of Radiology Informatics at Mayo Clinic and a neuro-radiologist.
