About Kjaya

Kjaya is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Semi-Autonomous Adaptive Neural and Genetic Segmentation of Medical Images. Their Phase I project will implement a physician-assisted, real-time adaptive system for the segmentation of anatomical structures in 3D medical image data. Medical image segmentation seeks to change the representation of an anatomical structure, making it more easily analyzed. Because of the extreme variability of these structures in biological systems, current idiosyncratic manual methods currently in use are tedious, time consuming, and error prone. Image segmentation cannot in general be programmatically solved. The proposed system is a Neural Network (NN) based adaptation of the individual data using parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and coupled with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based adaptation across GPU cores. The system will build a diagnostically useful segmentation of the anatomical feature within seconds from an area of interest outlined by a physician using a Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Fast growth in medical imaging overwhelms available diagnosticians. An intuitive and inexpensive system to quickly and accurately deliver diagnostic relevant segmentation of medical images offers tremendous commercial value. Currently, each scan requires approximately 50 minutes of manual preparation. The diagnosis and treatment of an estimated 20 percent of diseases benefit from medical imaging. Newer scanning technologies have increased in resolution, but such techniques have not made segmenting easier or faster. The proposed method will enable more diagnostics to be done with the quality controlled directly by physicians.

MicroMRI

MicroMRI has developed an method to visualize bone micro-architecture using high resolution MRI. MicroMRI's product is post-processing software that converts MRI images into three-dimensional display of bone microarchitecture with the possibility of manual or automated measurements. MicroMRI can also provide a dedicated coil for high-resolution MR imaging of the wrist. Clinical investigators have used MicroMRI's post-processing software in combination with a modified spin echo pulse sequence called FLASE (Fast Large Angle Spin Echo).

Bodyviz creates incredible 3D MRI, CT scan visualizations, unlocking medical imaging for virtually anyone including the practicing surgeon. This virtual reality (VR) visualization software is affordably priced, lightweight, simple to use, and runs on a typical PC.

EXCMR Logo
EXCMR

EXCMR develops medical devices to enhance cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The company has developed an MRI-compatible treadmill that aims to allow cardiovascular exercise stress testing with MRI, giving doctors pictures of the heart immediately following peak exercise stress. MRI shows both heart function and perfusion (blood flow to the heart muscle) with higher resolution and clarity than available with other imaging tests. Symptoms, like chest pain, caused by coronary artery blockages often can be reproduced only with exercise-induced stress. Images of the heart taken immediately after exercise allow doctors to examine the pumping action and blood flow at rest and stress to more accurately determine the cause of symptoms. The MRI-compatible treadmill aims to allow for the first time the combination of exercise stress testing with magnetic resonance imaging. EXCMR was specifically formed to provide commercial production and distribution of the treadmill.
