NVIDIA GOES PINK IN HONOR OF BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

by Hector Marinez

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and it’s a good time to realize we can all do something to help stop this devastating disease.

Check out this video that highlights some innovative ways that companies are contributing to the race for the cure. We’re proud to be included in it along with Salt Lake City’s TechniScan Medical Systems. As we’ve mentioned in a previous post, TechniScan’s ultrasound breast-scanning systems are built on NVIDIA GPUs, and it’s the incredible parallel processing power of GPU technology that lets TechniScan provide such high-resolution, non-invasive scans – often within 30 minutes.

It’s our hope at NVIDIA that GPU computing can contribute to the breakthroughs medical imaging companies like TechniScan are making – and, ultimately, that this will change the way women are diagnosed and save lives through early cancer detection.
