GE Healthcare's radiology and vascular ultrasound arm has partnered with computer-aided detection (CAD) software developer Medipattern in a five-year sales and development agreement for ultrasound-based CAD technology. Under the agreement, GE will resell Medipattern's current B-CAD breast ultrasound product line, while the two companies will work together to produce future ultrasound imaging products. In turn, Medipattern (Toronto, Ontario) will manufacture an advanced version of its B-CAD system for exclusive use in GE's ultrasound products, which will be marketed worldwide by the imaging giant.
