Image-Analysis Software Sees Cancer in 3D

This article summarizes a custom-developed algorithm that ERT’s imaging experts built to help NASA evaluate the effects of anti-gravity on blood cells after astronauts spend time in outer space. The findings on blood cell changes that occur during space flight are helping NASA scientists determine how to prevent or minimize bone / muscle loss in astronauts who spend long periods of time in space.

How does this benefit life on Earth? The article details how researchers are using ERT’s algorithm today to identify the three-dimensional shape of a tumor within an image series. This technology is being applied during clinical trials of pulmonary embolism and aneurysms, and has potential life-saving applications in the study and treatment of cancer.
