TissueInformatics has linked up with Windber Research Institute (WRI) in the US to develop software that could lead to faster, more accurate diagnosis of breast cancer and improved drug and other therapies for treatment. The partners are developing what Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based TissueInformatics claims is the industry's first software package for the quantitative structural analysis of cancerous breast tissue - a way of digitising breast tissue and then automatically analysing the images through highly accurate "machine vision". Current diagnostic research, says the firm, is primarily manual, making it subject to differences in human interpretation.
