Olea Medical®, a Canon Medical Systems Corporation, is a provider of innovative MR and CT imaging post-processing solutions, Olea Sphere®.


At Olea Medical®, we develop and market automated & multi-vendor organ-dedicated post-processing solutions, significantly improving diagnosis.

Our company has established a strong credibility, through the domestication of cutting-edge technology, and partnerships with leading institutions worldwide. With proprietary Bayesian algorithms and optimization methods applied to medical imaging, today Olea Medical® is a key player in standardized, vendor-neutral, advanced MR quantitative and qualitative image post-processing.

Covering both morphologic and functional imaging, Olea Medical® post-processing solutions bring complex mathematics into clinical practice for easy access to accurate and robust biomarkers for enhanced diagnostic confidence and response-to-treatment assessment.


Olea Medical® was incorporated in 2008, but its history began in 1998, when its founder, then a young medical school student, decided to transition to computer engineering. A trick of life plunged him into the world of medical research to design software dedicated to the processing of medical images for hyper acute stroke – the ancestor of PerfScape® and NeuroScape®.

After a ten-year career in military informatics, the idea of Olea Medical® emerged with three other engineers, motivated and idealistic, and, with it, the mission of Olea – Improve Diagnosis for LifeTM.

Olea Medical®, initially a 4-people adventure, is now an established company gathering engineers, mathematicians, astrophysicists, researchers accompanied by renowned clinicians and prestigious scientific advisors. Together, they share one common goal: improving the diagnosis and treatment of most devastating diseases.

The credibility of Olea Medical® has been established through the domestication of cutting-edge technology, partnerships with leading institutions, and a powerful vision: saving the highest number of lives.


Olea Medical® is animated by men and women with strong values and one high ideal: preserve life.
Olea Medical® strives to bring its scientific expertise, work ethics, passion and creativity at the service of all patients worldwide.


The Bayesian Saga

ECR 2016 Edition – Issue Number 1 – March 2016

The Bayesian method is a probabilistic method based on Bayes’s theorem, published in the 18th century. Bayesian framework can be applied in any context where parameters estimation is required and noise level is a limitation. This technique represents an indisputable breakthrough and a game changer in perfusion imaging as well as diffusion and so much more. In this first edition of Olea Imagein, Olea Medical® will reveal all the secrets of this unparalleled algorithm and its positive impact on both MRI and CT image post-processing.


The Diffusion Saga

RSNA 2016 Edition – Issue Number 2 – November 2016

Diffusion imag­ing covers a broad spectrum of techniques, from the mapping of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values to diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) or Kurtosis imaging. All these applications are based on a single physicochemical property: water motion at the cellular level. In this second edition of Olea Imagein, Olea Medical® will reveal all the secrets of this technique and its potential future applications.
