The Mayo Clinic and IBM have exploited parallel computer architecture and memory bandwidth to dramatically speed the processing of 3-D medical images.

Through porting and optimization of Mayo Clinic’s Image Registration Application on the IBM BladeCenter® QS20 'Cell Blade', the application produced image results 50 times faster than the application running on a traditional processor configuration. The results will be presented in full in a joint presentation by Mayo Clinic and IBM at the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging in Washington, D.C., April 12th to 15th.
