4D CT Aids Brain Perfusion Analysis

November 18, 2009 - Advanced visualization tools are increasingly important to support radiologists as they diagnose complex MR, CT, SPECT cases. To meet the demands on radiologists to complete reads efficiently, accurately and provide these tools, a workstation should be built on highly scalable architecture and be accessible remotely.

Next generation workflow enhancements and new clinical functionality are now available on the Ziostation true thin-client architecture, which requires no proprietary or specialized hardware components.

The advanced workflow optimization tools include a customizable user interface, configurable user workflows and anatomy-specific automatic segmentation using intelligent algorithms.

The application offers new 3D and 4D applications (currently pending regulatory clearance in the U.S.) that provide the following:

- MR applications: brain perfusion, cardiac perfusion and delayed enhancement analysis
- SPECT/CT fusion analysis
- 4D CT brain perfusion analysis
- Integrated Medicsight computer-aided detection for the colon

Also featured at RSNA will be Ziosoft’s full suite of FDA-cleared analysis applications including:

- CT vascular analysis
- CT cardiac analysis
- CT brain perfusion analysis
- CT colon analysis
- MR cardiac analysis
- Multimodality fusion

The optional Versaweb feature expands the reach of Ziostation’s thin-client system to most computers with a Web browser and requires no installation of client software, applets or plug-ins. Versaweb provides 3D analysis and real-time collaboration tools over low bandwidth. Original and saved images as well as reports can be shared by authorized users in real time from a centralized source to optimize the flow of care.

Ziosoft Inc. will feature its next generation of workflow enhancements and new clinical functionality for the Ziostation system during the 95th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at booth 8353 (North Hall).

Ziosoft will also be offering a free basic 2D/3D software application, which has been initially released for use in the U.S. and Canada. RSNA attendees can visit the Ziosoft booth to register for their free software, which is intended for educational use.
