SSAI’s science and engineering expertise spans across multiple disciplines, including the medical field.  We currently support biomedical research for the NIH’s Center for Information Technology, where we provide medical image processing, analysis, and visualization support.
At the NIH, we provide analysis and software development for the Medical Image Processing, Analysis, and Visualization (MIPAV) program, which is a multi-dimensional image processing and visualization system. We support development of the graphical user interface, new applications tools, and the ability to run several applications simultaneously.  A significant effort has involved development of new display and analysis techniques for Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), which may be used to track fluid motions in the brain and to map nerve fibers. SSAI also provided key analysis and software support for several research efforts, including imaging studies of infant brain development, studies of optical properties of Drosophilia eyes, and studies of the use of enhancements based on multi-viewpoint imaging.
