Software-Defined Workflows for Medical Equipment Development

25 May 2024

Computing software vendor MathWorks’ widely-deployed MATLAB data analysis environment can now be used in conjunction with the NVIDIA Holoscan sensor processing platform.

This will facilitate the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) applications in a medical context, enabling superior features and functionality to be incorporated. The integration of MATLAB into Holoscan will help medical device engineers utilise existing built-in matrix operations and complex toolbox capabilities for image/signal processing, filtering, transforms, deep learning algorithms, etc. The implementation of a Holoscan pipeline with MATLAB calls for the execution of 4 steps. These are creating a MATLAB function, generating accelerated CUDA code using GPU Coder, producing a Holoscan operator wrapper, then re-building the Holoscan application with a new MATLAB operator. This allows the construction of a completely functional, software-defined workflow for medical product development.

“The medical technology industry is being transformed by AI,” notes David Niewolny, NVIDIA’s Director of Business Development for MedTech. "By providing a seamless development experience for the growing MATLAB development community within NVIDIA’s medical-grade Holoscan platform, NVIDIA and Mathworks are accelerating AI-powered innovation in med tech.” 
“Engineers can now write MATLAB functions and execute them thousands of times faster with NVIDIA Holoscan,” said MathWorks’ Director of Product Marketing David Rich. “Our collaborations with industry leaders like NVIDIA are set to drive medical device innovation as millions of our customers seek to design, develop, and test their products while complying with industry regulations and standards.”
