Cloud-Based Advanced Visualization Enables Tools Anywhere

October 29, 2010 – A range of enhancements to an advanced visualization suite will be shown at RSNA 2010. Shina Systems will display its virtual 3Di suite, which delivers imaging data, reformatting and viewing tools and powerful computer processing in a cloud environment.

The company is also showing a zero-footprint, browser-based 2-D PACS viewer that enables anywhere, anytime review of images stored in the company’s cloud-based archive. An easy-to-use patient file locator, which is similar to Internet search engines, is also available.

The 3Di thin client suite now comes with enhanced speed and more intuitive features. It provides interactive advanced visualization from any local PC, taking advantage of available bandwidth and local computing power to optimize performance, while drawing on the vast computing power of the 3Di cloud network. Users can instantly process, view and manipulate reformations, whether images are archived locally or remotely.

Shina received FDA 510(k) clearance for 3Di in February 2010 and introduced the product commercially in May.

The 3Di adds support for cine images and brain perfusion studies, in addition to general multi-modality 3-D reformations cardiac CT analysis, CT calcium scoring, virtual colonoscopy and PET/CT fusion (works-in-progress).

The user interface and all functionality will integrate seamlessly with a local PACS. A bi-directional image synchronization feature ensures both the PACS and any 3Di offsite storage are up to date. With convenient pay-per-use pricing, 3Di requires no upfront fees or commitment to begin implementation. All 3Di image data is stored on remote archives with multiple redundancy and HIPAA-compliance.

The Web-based 2-D PACS viewer brings full-featured high-quality image analysis to any Web-enabled PC and handheld device on-the-fly with no file download. The new feature makes images stored or cached in Shina’s remote cloud instantly available to any authorized user. This application also serves as an image communication engine for patient electronic medical records.

Adding a new level of convenience to all Shina imaging applications, now users may simply type in a patient name or identifier, and they will be instantly presented with all matching exams stored within their user group in the Shina system.
