GE, BSD Medical to integrate cancer treatments, MRI
BSD Medical and GE Healthcare have signed a collaboration agreement to integrate BSD’s cancer treatment system with MRI technology from GE.

The new system, to be installed at Duke University in Durham, N.C., will provide MRI of cancer treatments in progress as delivered by a BSD system.

The BSD-2000/3D/MR is a hybrid integration of a BSD-2000/3D cancer treatment system with MRI used to visually monitor deep thermal therapy cancer treatments in progress with thermal imaging through MR-tomography. The images are in color, and temperature within the images is differentiated visually by use of color coding, according to the Salt Lake City-based BSD.
