ContextVision Introduces AI-Powered Image Enhancement for Digital Radiography

Altumira software addresses challenges regarding durability and high image quality for all X-ray and angiography exams

ContextVision Introduces AI-Powered Image Enhancement for Digital Radiography

November 9, 2018 — With the integration of deep learning technology, ContextVision takes digital radiography (DR) to new levels with its latest image enhancement platform, Altumira.

ContextVision’s new technology supports clinicians to accurately interpret medical imaging, leading the way to better diagnoses and improved patient care. Altumira is specially designed to meet the demanding needs of DR, and addresses significant challenges regarding durability and high image quality that have been difficult to solve before, including:

  • Varying exposure conditions between patients;
  • A wide variety of image characteristics and requirements for all types of anatomies; and
  • Varying dose and intensity levels, as well as organs and collimators in motion in dynamic sequences.

Altumira is designed for all DR systems, from plain X-ray to the most advanced angiography systems. The software can provide greater contrast and resolution in parallel with intelligent noise suppression and harmonized intensity levels also for low-dose fluoroscopy as well as in high-quality angiography sequences.

This new product adds to ContextVision’s present product portfolio of image enhancement for 2-D/3-D/4-D ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray and mammography.

Demonstrations of Altumira, as well as ContextVision’s other solutions, will occur during the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
