Visage Imaging introduces new version of 3D/4D visualisation software

21 November 2007

Visage Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) showcased the newest version of its 3D and 4D visualisation software framework, amira, at Neuroscience 2007 earlier this month.

amira visualizes, manipulates, and analyzes complex 3D and 4D data sets in biomedical research. Visage Imaging is fine-tuning a major new release of amira that is dedicated to life science applications, and highlighted some of the advanced features for neuroscience applications such as advanced tools for neuron and vessel tracing, automatic skeletonisation, visualisation and statistical analysis of vascular and dendritic tree structures, as well as improved powerful segmentation tools.

Because of the rapid developments in the microscopy market, the next release of amira will also introduce several additional microscopy format readers, as well as greatly enhanced DICOM export capabilities.

“amira enables researchers in the medical and biomedical field to push the limits of what is possible today; and to visualize structures and processes that no one has ever seen before,” said Marcelo G. Lima, President of Visage Imaging. “We invite amira users to join our community of Visioneers, and work with us to design the tools and applications of the future.”
