Software to clarify MRI scan analysis

3D Net Perfusion, new software developed by The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) working with Biotronics3D, aims to improve the accuracy of MRI scan analysis and treatment efficacy by extracting data from tumour images and transforming it into usable information. In addition, the analytical tool provides a method to visualise and measure blood supply to cancers - a crucial factor in tumour growth.

Resulting from trials at the ICR led by Professor Martin Leach, David Collins and James d’Arcy, the software is currently used in 10 research centres. Work continues between the ICR scientists and Biotronics3D to enhance the product, which has attracted significant investment from London-based venture specialist Longbow Capital LLP.
