Guardian Technologies 3i technology promises to boost image quality
Guardian Technologies International Inc.'s  Advanced Research Department has created what it calls "a breakthrough in image processing" with the potential to dramatically improve the diagnostic characteristics of medical images which should result in easier and speedier diagnoses, decreased misreads, and greater workflow efficiency for the diagnosing physician.

The intelligent imaging informatics (3i) technology is able to detect and distinguish different types of organic compounds contained in images from a wide array of sources, including x-ray, CT, and hyper spectral data types. Guardian says it has initiated research and development activities focused on the implementation of its new 3i technology in extended visualization imaging tools, multi-modal synthesis/image fusion, and CAD.
