Voxar

Andrew Bissell had hoped to sell his imaging software to computer-games developers. When that failed he adapted it for use in medicine. Voxar, the company he founded in 1995, has created software that takes the output from medical scanners and turns it into 3D images that can be displayed on a standard PC rather than an expensive workstation. Deals with the NHS and hospitals worldwide have boosted sales 152% a year from £574,000 in 2000 to an annualised £3.7m in 2002.
