The Rochester, Minn. –based Mayo Clinic and IBM (Armonk, N.Y.) have created a collaborative research facility aimed at advancing medical imaging technologies to improve patient care.

Driving the projects will be a full-time team of Mayo and IBM researchers and development staff. Together, they will tackle such initiatives as maximum-resolution organ imaging, image-guided tumor ablation, and automated change detection and analysis. MI3C will feature high-end imaging platforms and computational hardware, including IBM’s computing system based on its Cell Broadband Engine and blade technology. The MI3C will also leverage Mayo’s prowess in medical imaging research and informatics.

The Medical Imaging Informatics Innovation Center (MI3C) is an extension of a Mayo-IBM research collaboration announced in 2007. It will be housed on the Mayo Clinic campus in Rochester.
