About us and our history

Our story

Founded in 2001, CCI specialises in providing software like Cadran that helps doctors use medical images to make decisions in diagnosis and treatment. Since its foundation, when it focused on supporting the needs of Papworth Hospital, the UK’s largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital, CCI has worked with facilities where its software is used to support diagnosis, plan treatment, measure response and share knowledge within multi-disciplinary teams.

CCI’s core product, the Cadran image platform, provides a comprehensive picture archiving and communications system designed to offer both clinical and productivity benefits. Connecting with and accessing images from all imaging modalities, such as CT and PET scanners, Cadran enables connectivity with any device using the DICOM standard.

Since 2011, CCI has worked with TexRAD where it has been responsible for developing the innovative quantitative textural analysis platform.

Customers include many of the UK’s leading hospitals, and partners work worldwide. CCI also offers consultancy services to medical organisations which require medical image management, including hospital radiology and cardiology departments, medical schools and training institutions and industry meetings and exhibitions. CCI provides friendly and professional advice based on many years knowledge and experience gained in the field.

He started his career as a medical physicist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where he took his MSc in Radiation Physics. At Addenbrooke’s he worked on the first CT perfusion implementation for modern CT scanners, leading to publication in The Lancet in 1991. From there he went on to work on cardiac imaging at Papworth Hospital, working with Stephen Brown on ECG-triggered spiral CT. In 2001, Mike and Stephen formed CCI.
