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 new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.

This figure shows reduced hippocampal volume over the course of 6 years as seen on progressive volumetric analysis and also coronal MRI evaluations (arrows).Progressive volume loss in the mesial temporal lobe on MRI is a characteristic imaging feature of AD. This patient was a case of Alzheimer’s Dementia.
