Biomarkers and image analysis tools

Can some type of image analysing tool along with decision-making processes be developed into softwares that scientists use to analyze tissues?
something like having customers providing their biomarkers and a software helping them assess morphological changes in tissues, such as colom cancer tissues?

A single biomarker may provide some clues on a disease-specific change, but a biomarker panel provides more sensitive picture of the disease process. A company called Definiens (www.definiens.com) have came up with a technology to model human thoughts. They have developed an Image-Analysing tool-software- with the decision-making processes. What makes this software different is a scalable platform that represents a totally different approach to image analysis: a cognition network analyses a complex input, such as images, by maintaining a hierarchy of structures in which multiple changes are represented as a pattern.

an "ideal biomarker," which

an "ideal biomarker," which should display unique characteristics (e.g.,presence/absence or signal intensity) in each sample from patients with a certain disease, does not exist.Hence, it is important to analyze as many data as possible and to develop methods that can derive diagnostic power from the patterns of observed data.
