Nuance Communications has stepped up its presence in the medical radiology market with the purchase of speech-enabled radiology technology specialist Commissure. The acquisition sees Nuance add Commissure's radiology workflow optimisation products to its own portfolio of speech recognition and document management technologies within its Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions subsidiary. Burlington, Massachusetts-based Nuance also benefits from Commissure's exclusive technology license agreement with Massachusetts General Hospital, which has seen the two parties develop the Leximer (Lexicon Mediated Entropy Reduction) natural language technology. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
