Calgary Scientific Debuts ResolutionMD Software

Calgary Scientific Medical Group has announced FDA clearance of software that extends advanced medical visualization capabilities from a radiology workstation to standard computer systems. The ResolutionMD software enables standard desktop and laptop computers to transform CT, MR, PET and other medical image data from scanning systems into 2-D and 3-D visualizations.

With the software, radiologists and referring physicians can perform interpretations while at the office, the hospital or at home, independent of the vendor model of image scanner. The program’s clear, vivid medical illustration-type visualizations also reportedly assist practitioners in explaining diagnoses and treatment to patients and their families. The software delivers real-time 3-D rendering and contextual close-up capabilities for instant exploration of obstructed anatomy without having to segment the 3-D volume. ResolutionMD also comprises an industry-first interactive lens tool and an edge enhancement tool for improved visualization of low-contrast internal structures.
