3D Medical Imaging Deal to Improve Detection and Treatment of Disease
with World Leader in Medical Scanners
March 20, 2012. Vancouver, BC, Budapest, Hungary. ISee3d Inc. (TSX-V:
ICT) a leader in the development of unique 3D image capture
technologies, today announced an exclusive supply and distribution
agreement with 3DHISTECH Kft. of Budapest Hungary, a major designer
and developer of digital medical slide scanner hardware and software
solutions for digital pathology.
While the terms of the agreement were not disclosed, ISee3D will be
the exclusive suppliers of 3D image capture technology to be included
in 3DHISTECH scanners for the medical market. 3DHISTECH has the second
largest installed scanner base with more than 600 digital histology
slide scanners sold globally.
"To satisfy 3DHISTECH's mandate to maintain our leadership
position in the digital pathology scanning market, we scour the world
for the best technologies available to enhance our product
offerings," said Dr. Bela Molnar, founder and Chief Executive
Officer of 3DHISTECH. "When the technologies of ISee3D's single
lens system are coupled with our scanners, the resulting 3D image
quality and capture is well ahead of any product on the market today.
We believe that this next generation product set will be extremely
well received by the global pathology community. Optical microscopy is
3D, digital microscopy and pathology will be now as well!"
3D imaging is becoming the de facto preference among many medical
professionals for disease detection, especially in the early detection
and treatment of deadly diseases such as cancer.
"3DHISTECH is a world leader in scanner technology used in
pathology, histology and cytology. ISee3D's agreement with 3DHISTECH
is an extremely important relationship to distribute and showcase our
technology directly into the world medical imaging sector," said
Terry Debono, Chief Executive Officer of ISee3D." The 3D image
quality that results from the matching of these two technologies is
nothing short of astounding. We expect a long and profitable
relationship with 3DHISTECH as we work with the Company to further
enhance its already impressive product line."
3DHISTECH Kft is based in Budapest, Hungary and it operates world-wide
through its partners. With a significant knowledge base, the company
is not only adapting to the extremely fast changing field of digital
pathology but it is at the forefront of technical innovation. The
company began developing and producing whole slide imaging systems and
digital pathology solutions ten years ago before it had achieved
widespread acceptance and adoption. Now, the concept of digital slides
has become a reality, providing solutions to the bottlenecks in a
modern pathology lab. Learn more at: http://www.3dhistech.com
ISee3D, Inc. (Vancouver BC, Canada) has developed proprietary
solutions that markedly increase the performance of new and existing
imaging systems by utilizing its unique single lens/camera 3D
technology. ISee3D's solutions intrinsically maintain consistent
calibration and alignment and directly correct the critical issues of
mismatched focal lengths, lens focus and aberrations that are
characteristic of current 3D imaging techniques. ISee3D's single lens
technology produces perfectly matched images and ensures that the
physical and ocular discomfort experienced by surgeons, histologists,
pathologists etc., as a result of prolonged 3D image viewing using
dual camera techniques, is no longer an issue.
