is a Toronto-based company founded in 2008 to develop innovative
solutions for medical image analysis. The software, Segasist™
, is an intelligent productivity tool that learns and improves its
automated ability through clinician training and use. Over a short
period of time, interpretation by Segasist™
approaches the accuracy of its human clinician-operator.
As a result, segmentation becomes quick and efficient with the help of
Segasist . Segasist™ software uses a
combination of unique, proprietary algorithms referred to collectively
as the Omni-Modality Intelligent Segmentation Agent (OMISA).
The Segasist™ medical image segmentation
agent has several advantages over commercially available image segmentation
It is the only segmentation method that incorporates real-time, continual
It requires far less manual segmentation to achieve the accuracy
of manual methods.
It can drastically reduce the time required to achieve image segmentation.
It is the only software that remembers clinician preferences and
It is operable on multiple modalities and clinical cases.
Corporation was founded in 1999
to develop medical imaging software solutions for medical imaging.
Medipattern has developed a platform technology that supports applications
for the automatic detection and analysis of anomalies in medical images.
The Company's initial product offering, B-CAD™, is a medical imaging
application designed to analyze breast ultrasound images. B-CAD uses pattern
recognition methods to help radiologists assess lesions and speed the
reporting process. Medipattern's family of medical imaging products has
expanded with the Company's announcement of MRI CAD™, which adds
Medipattern's morphological feature analysis to standard medical imaging
for MRI. With this announcement, Medipattern successfully crossed the
modality barrier from ultrasound to MRI. Medipattern has partnered with
Cedara Software and Merge Healthcare for global distribution of B-CAD
to OEM customers and end users respectively. B-CAD™ is a trademark
of The Medipattern Corporation.
