Cells sell

Quicky from io9. Looks like Sony's Cell processor is being used to aid medical imaging. You might remember the Cell processor as the brains behind the PS3. You might also remember that Sony sold off the Cell to Toshiba for reasons no one really knows. Interesting choice, since it is highly scalable and has gobs of memory bandwidth. But, the future of Cell is highly unknown (though no reason to doubt it will be around, since Toshiba needs something to bring in cash after HD-DVD crashes this year).
