Feedback (FDBK) – First sale of TexRAD in China

FBKlogoFeedback plc (FDBK), the medical imaging software company, is pleased to announce the first sale for research purposes of Feedback’s TexRAD texture analysis software in China. Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Beijing, China (‘PUMCH’), has recently purchased the TexRAD software to undertake research studies in cancer and other diseases. This has been made possible via logistical support from GE Healthcare.

PUMCH is one of the most renowned hospitals in the People’s Republic of China. It was founded in 1921 by the China Medical Board in New York under the Rockefeller Foundation and is located in the centre of modern Beijing. PUMCH is committed to delivering state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative scientific research and rigorous medical education and it enjoys a high reputation for its full range of disciplines, leading medical practitioners and cutting-edge technologies. It is also a national referral centre for the diagnosis and therapeutic care of complex and rare disorders.

Dr. Huadan (Danna) Xue, Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology, PUMCH commented, “We are very excited with the prospects of using the TexRAD imaging research software platform in conjunction with the research and clinical support from GE towards PUMCH, further reinforcing our vision and reputation of being early adopters of new technologies, particularly in the fascinating area of quantitative imaging and its applications in cancer care and other diseases.”

TexRAD research software will extract key heterogeneity information via a novel quantitative texture analysis approach from PUMCH’s cancer imaging datasets. TexRAD has already established itself as a leading and innovative texture analysis software product, currently employed as a research tool in a number of prestigious imaging centres and university hospitals in the western world and recently in other large Asian markets such as South Korea and Japan. Similarly at PUMCH, TexRAD will be assisting to enhance the research output in cancer and other non-cancer imaging applications and helping to identify potential clinical applications to improve care management of patients in the future.

Dr. Balaji Ganeshan, Chief Scientist and New Business Officer at the Company’s subsidiaries TexRAD Ltd and Cambridge Computed Imaging Ltd, commented, “We are delighted to receive this order, working with a leading original equipment manufacturer on the sale and entering the huge Chinese market. We are especially privileged to be supplying PUMCH which is recognized to be the leading hospital in China and working with the Department of Radiology, headed by the internationally renowned Dr Zheng-Yu Jin. We believe this will open up new avenues and opportunities for Feedback in establishing itself and fulfilling its vision as an innovative multi-modality medical imaging software company.”
