Visualize Microscopy Images of Living Cells in Real-Time

At the University of California, Berkeley’s Advanced Bioimaging Center, lightsheet microscopy researchers are using NVIDIA Clara Holoscan with NVIDIA IndeX® to automatically detect cellular activities in real time.

AI Computing for Medical

NVIDIA Clara Holoscan seamlessly bridges medical devices with the data center, supporting innovators building signal processing, AI inference, and visualization workflows for a software-defined medical device ecosystem that spans radiology, ultrasound, endoscopy, robotic surgery, patient monitoring, and beyond.

Removing Artifacts in Ultrasound Imaging

Because blood flow can exceed the rate at which ultrasound color doppler imaging can capture images, aliasing artifacts can occur and obscure visualizations. The LITMUS group at the University of Waterloo used NVIDIA Clara Holoscan to better visualize blood flow and ​​also increased the frame rate from 2fps to 30 fps.

Fujifilm’s Cardio StillShot Software

Capturing 6X Better Temporal Resolution at Any Heart Rate

Capturing clear diagnostic images of a beating heart and its vasculature is challenging in cardiac computed tomography (CT) imaging. Fujifilm Healthcare overcame this challenge with NVIDIA GPUs, adding premium capabilities to scanners via a software enhancement and avoiding costly redesigns and manufacturing upgrades.
