VisionGate to Use MathStar Chip in Cell Visualization Technology

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – VisionGate will use semiconductor developer MathStar’s technology to develop a medical imaging solution for cellular characterization that would be used to scan cells in patients at risk of cancer, MathStar said today.
 
Under the agreement, VisionGate will use MathStar’s Arrix FPOA chip as the processing engine for its Cell-CT platform, which is entering investigational clinical trials, MathStar said.
 
VisionGate Chairman and CEO Alan Nelson said in a statement that the MathStar architecture “provides the performance and flexibility to implement the computationally demanding filtering and back-projection algorithms we employ in our 3D imaging technology.”
 

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
