MUNICH, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TomTec, leading provider of medical imaging software solutions for multimodality quantification, visualization and image management, and Medis, a leading provider of quantification software solutions, today announced the launch of a joint cardiac imaging and analysis product for X-ray angiography and ultrasound.
