IGI Technologies is a University of Maryland-based startup focused on delivering high-speed image registration solutions to clinicians. Medical images taken of the same patient but on different equipment or at different times are difficult to overlay due to changes in the body from breathing, position, or morphology. We correct these misalignments automatically and on-demand. To achieve our level of accuracy and speed, we leverage our patented algorithm that subdivides the registration problem and map it to a high-speed programmable platform: a graphics processor.
