Visage debuts next iteration of amira
Visage Imaging will release an updated version of amira, a software framework solution for visualizing, manipulating, and analyzing complex 3D and 4D data sets in biomedical research, at Neuroscience 2007 this weekend in San Diego.
The new version has advanced features for neuroscience such as tools for neuron and vessel tracing, automatic skeletonization, visualization and statistical analysis of vascular and dendritic tree structures, as well as improved powerful segmentation tools, the Carlsbad, Calif.-based company said.

The company said that because of the rapid developments in the microscopy market, the new version of amira will include several additional microscopy format readers, as well as enhanced DICOM export capabilities.
