Press Release from Dublin City University
Date: 12th March 2010

Dublin City University (DCU) has agreed to license its breakthrough Computer Aided Detection (CAD) technology to Biotronics3D a London-based company, active in the research, development and marketing of advanced, image-based medical diagnostic devices.


The solution, developed at DCU’s Centre for Image Processing and Analysis (CIPA), is designed to assist in the early detection and treatment of colon cancer. Computed Tomography Colongraphy (CTC) also known as Virtual Colonoscopy (VC) is an alternative to traditional endoscopic optical colonoscopy procedures. Using the VC approach, the patient undergoes a non-invasive CT scan of the colon from which a computer generated 3D image of the organ is displayed on a workstation. The CAD tool automatically identifies abnormalities on the colon surface and identifies these on the computer display to assist the clinician in diagnosis.
