August 19, 2008 – Barco has released a new version of its Voxar 3D advanced visualization software suite that is integrated in Agfa’s IMPAX PACS, designed to streamline imaging workflow, enabling physicians to read and report their studies faster and more efficiently.
The new Voxar 3D suite is available with a full set of integrated clinical applications, including ‘VesselMetrix’ for quantitative 3D vessel analysis, ‘CardiaMetrix’ for CT cardiac analysis, ‘ColonMetrix’ for CT colonography, and ‘PET-CT Fusion’ for the interpretation of whole body oncology studies.
Barco’s Voxar 3D version 6.3 enhances IMPAX with advanced visualization that maximizes productivity, according to the company.
Voxar 3D is designed to optimize the ease-of-use and productivity of the daily imaging workflow. It makes advanced visualization accessible on any IMPAX workstation over a standard 100 Mbps hospital network. Voxar 3D also delivers fast loading. With the client-server ‘Enterprise’ version, loading an entire 1000-slice series in full diagnostic quality takes around 10 seconds, while a 2000-slice series takes about 13 seconds. As a tool for daily use, the suite operates effectively with any CT, MR or PET data, even data of sub-optimal quality.
