Samsung in Korea takes Cambridge medical imaging technology
Feedback plc, an AIM-quoted medical imaging technology business anchored in Cambridge UK, has won a significant order to supply the Samsung Medical Centre in Seoul.
The deal is for Feedback’s TexRAD® patented image texture analysis technology and has been secured through Feedback’s South Korean distributor, Korea Computer Motion ISG. The success follows an exclusive distributor arrangement announced on last year granting Korea ISG the ability to sell and distribute TexRAD in South Korea for research purposes, performing advanced analysis of routinely acquired medical diagnostic images, such as CT and MRI scans.
To date, Korea ISG has obtained several orders for the TexRAD® software technology in South Korea. This is the first order from Samsung Medical Centre, one of the nation’s leading hospital groups, founded by Samsung Group. Samsung Medical Centre has a strong focus on research, particularly in radiology and oncology.
Dr Balaji Ganeshan, global business development director of the AIM company’s specialist subsidiary Feedback Medical Ltd, said: “The order of TexRAD® by such a cutting-edge medical facility as the Samsung Medical Centre is a great validation of the capabilities of our technology platform.
“We are seeing increasing traction within our international distributor network as our reputation grows.”
Feedback has the experienced life science entrepreneur Dr Alastair Riddell as its executive chairman and its products advance the work of radiologists, clinicians and medical researchers by improving workflows and giving unique insights into diseases, particularly cancer.
Feedback Medical works with customers globally from headquarters in the internationally renowned scientific hub of Cambridge. Its proprietary technologies are TexRAD®, the quantitative texture analysis tool and Cadran, a picture archiving communication system.
