Fovia and Blackford Analysis Collaborate to Provide 3D Registration for Medical OEMs

HDVR(R) and Blackford Fusion(TM) Save Time, Improve Accuracy

PALO ALTO, CA and EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 11/25/12 -- Fovia Medical, Inc., a world leader in imaging technology and the developer of High Definition Volume Rendering®, and Blackford Analysis Ltd., creator of unparalleled registration technology using algorithms originally developed for astrophysicists, today announced plans to deliver compatible SDKs to the medical advanced visualization market.

Blackford Analysis's Blackford Fusion™ software accelerates the challenging process of image study comparison by enabling radiologists to pinpoint areas of interest in one study and have those areas instantly, automatically and accurately linked to the same points in separate MR, CT or PET scans. Concurrently, Fovia's scalable, CPU-based, thin-client HDVR® software provides critical advanced visualization "on-the-fly" via the cloud, local networks, or as an integrated component of existing architectures.

By combining Blackford Fusion™ and HDVR® technologies, a medical original equipment manufacturer can deliver ubiquitous, split-second access to automatically registered datasets, thereby enabling radiologists to spend more time on analysis and decision-making. As volumetric datasets increase in size and complexity, this combined power will become an essential component in every OEM's offering.

"Fovia is a recognized leader in the advanced visualization field, and we are excited to integrate with their best-in-class volume rendering engine," said Ben Panter, Chief Executive Officer of Blackford Analysis. "Together our technologies can improve radiology productivity and increase the success rate of patient treatment."

"We are thrilled to have a partner with complementary, high-performance software that is literally out-of-this world," said Ken Fineman, Chief Executive Officer of Fovia, who commented on Blackford Analysis's astrophysics-based algorithms. "Our SDKs work well together, providing immediate benefits for medical vendors, radiologists and most importantly, patients."

About Fovia, Inc.

Fovia, Inc. was founded in 2003 to address the challenge of data explosion -- the exponentially increasing amount of data being acquired by modern imaging modalities. The firm has developed a CPU-based, High Definition Volume Rendering software solution that leverages and scales with multi-core, multi-processor and multi-threaded generational processor development. Fovia's HDVR Connect and HDVR Mobile solutions are more scalable, cost effective, flexible, and easily deployable on an enterprise-wide basis than GPU or other hardware-based approaches. They can be easily and natively integrated into various original equipment manufacturers' offerings, thereby enabling OEMs to deliver unrivaled image quality and uncompromised performance, both locally and remotely, in 2D, 3D and 4D advanced volume visualization applications.
