Researchers from the University of Cardiff have developed specialty software that analyzes standard digital X-rays and provides information on soft tissue that is normally not visualized. Without the expense of an MRI machine, the new technology describes the state of ligaments and cartilage imaged around bone tissue.
Demasq, a spinoff that is commercializing the technology, plans on releasing the first product, called Knee Imaging Software (KIS), that can provide guidance on the state of the tissue that is most likely to be diseased.
