Medical applications like CT (computed tomography) scanning and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) require quick, accurate results from processing complex algorithms. So reducing the compute time required is a primary challenge to manufacturers of CT and MRI equipment.

Hero Performance is about the Applications

David Lecomber, CEO, Allinea

During last month’s PRACE Days in Dublin – where I enjoyed talks on improvements in codes and methods in areas as diverse as CFD, RTM in geophysics, and in genomics – I saw once again that “hero” performance improvements happen and happen regularly.
