Medical Imaging

Improving patient outcomes with unmatched
capabilities and visual accuracy

Medical imaging system design teams are dramatically improving healthcare and lives by utilizing diverse technologies to ensure that clinicians and diagnosticians can evaluate any type of patient medical imagery with the greatest possible precision quickly and accurately. Specialities ranging from diagnostic imaging to Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) assisted medical procedures all depend on ultimate visual clarity and fidelity.

Concurrently, designers and engineers are asked to extend advanced visualization capabilities to more portable or lower cost products, or to reduce system costs across entire product portfolios. Design flexibility is also essential, particularly as products implement more features in software to deliver competitive and clinical advantage by offering advanced product features in next generation products.

NVIDIA® Quadro® offers unique features and capabilities that give design teams a compelling advantage across all aspects of medical imaging; including data bandwidth, sensor data analysis and control, image processing, and compute and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities for the post-processing requirements that medical imaging systems and applications, ranging from mobile or cart-based ultrasound systems, endoscopy systems and CT, MRI and PET scanners increasingly offer or even depend upon.



Image creation from source sound, radio, X-ray or gamma emissions require significant amounts of signal and image processing – which benefits greatly from GPU acceleration since they are intrinsicly parallel – and ideal for General Purpose GPU (GPGPU) acceleration. Endoscope, CT, PET, and X-ray imaging also utilize similar levels of signal and image processing, making GPGPU ideal for medical imaging applications. Teaming NVIDIA Quadro with NVIDIA CUDA, the world’s most widely used, advanced and tested GPGPU development environment, makes Quadro GPUs ranging from GPU down or MXM, to traditional PCIe Gen 3 compliant expansion boards, the best choice for medical imaging. Quadro products are found in systems from leading providers such as NDS Surgical Imaging, Siemens, and GE Medical.

Advanced Features and Performance

GPGPU computation and acceleration meets ever increasing processing performance requirements while allowing for system cost reduction. Advanced GPU accelerated algorithms move features and capabilities from hardware into software, for example ultrasound software beam forming, lowering costs while increasing design and upgrade flexibility, all while maintaining superb image quality. GPGPU compute and signal processing, and advanced GPU graphics capabilities like 12-bit grayscale or 30-bit color with HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagry, available with embedded or PCIe form factor Quadro GPUs, deliver enhanced image fidelity, resulting in more accurate diagnoses for patients. GPGPU lets medical imaging system manufacturers deliver superior performance at attractive price points, all while lowering development costs.
