TeraRecon aims to reinforce its emphasis on enterprise workflow and diagnostic tools in its Aquarius line of diagnostic workstations and enterprise-wide 3D servers. The Aquarius Workstation version 3.5 offers protocol-based workflow tools that automatically render 3D images based on the selected study type. Cardiovascular CT sharpens viewing with new soft plaque analysis, automatic vessel segmentation and extraction, measurement, interpretation and reporting tools. For CT colonography, it automatically segments the colon with flight paths and reportedly eases switching between 2D and 3D fly-though mode. The AquariusNET Server version 1.7’s enterprise workflow supports Single Sign On, online processing engines, provides Patient Information Reconciliation and sends response messages from RIS.
Aquarius Workstation Puts 3D in Enterprise Workflow
A portable scanning device produces a 3-D reconstruction of swollen legs caused by lymphatic filariasis, a disease that infects millions globally. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and colleagues in Sri Lanka will use the device to collect limb measurements for a clinical research trial examining whether the antibiotic doxycycline can reduce the severity of swelling.
