Median Technologies is partnering up with software giant Microsoft to integrate big data into its oncology imaging systems – and deliver Precision Medicine from the cloud.

median_precision_medicine_oncology_microsoftMedical imaging is an important part of the rise of digital medicine. Cool projects in the field include the aortic graft simulation of EVARplanning (one of the startups at Italian incubator BioUpper) and new methods to detect fungal infections.

Based in Sophia Antipolis (southeast France), Median Technologies has been developing imaging software for oncology since 2002.

Its technology extracts cancer biomarkers from medical images, obtained for example with a CAT scan. It has been used to characterize cancers, both to study the effect of cancer drugs in clinical trials and to help doctors choose the best therapy for specific cases in a personalized medicine approach.

Now, Median is moving to integrate big data into its products. And it is starting with no less than a collaboration with Microsoft.
