ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Logical Images, a developer of visual diagnostic healthcare software, announced today the closing of a $2.7 million financing with Massachusetts-based Ticonderoga Capital, a private equity firm focused exclusively on healthcare information technology and technology-enabled business services.

"In partnering with Ticonderoga, we can take this business to the next level while increasing our focus on the unique needs of each of our clients."
