Cedara merges software with National Cancer Institute archive
Dec. 4—Cedara Software, a Merge Healthcare company and medical imaging software and services company, has recently integrated its imaging service grid and I-Response with the National Cancer Institute's National Cancer Imaging Archive (NCIA).

The Toronto-based Cedara said its software is designed to provide a clinical viewer to review and analyze NCIA data. The NCIA is a searchable repository of in vivo cancer images acquired during clinical trials.

Cedara said its imaging service grid is a set of imaging functions, such as 2D rendering and 3D imaging that runs on server computers. The I-Response viewer establishes an HTTP request with the imaging service grid and allows users to employ measurement tools, according to Cedara.
