ContextVision Provides Ultrasound 3-D Image Enhancement

November 19, 2012 – Since 1983, ContextVision has pushed its image enhancement technology forward, delivering unparalleled diagnostic image quality to clinicians. At RSNA this year, ContextVision will demonstrate its cutting-edge software within ultrasound, x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography and more.

The groundbreaking GOP methodology detects structures by examining the significance of each pixel in relation to its wider context. Once the structure is identified and analyzed, noise can be suppressed and the true structure, however weak, can be emphasized and seen more clearly. This versatile technology combined with image processing expertise allows ContextVision to continuously improve the quality of medical images around the world.

At RSNA, ContextVision will demonstrate its cutting-edge software within a range of modalities, including:

·       GOPiCE US (3D/4D) – The industry’s first ultrasound real-time three-dimensional filtering product, it enhances 3D ultrasound volumes by filtering images to remove speckle, noise and other artifacts, while simultaneously sharpening diagnostically significant structures. Volumetric acquisitions empowered by multi-dimensional image enhancement leads to faster and more accurate diagnosis.

·       GOPView XR2Plus – automatically identifies and accounts for many exposure deficiencies, eliminating the need for time-consuming and costly retakes in digital radiology. With efficient black-point compensation and automatic adaptation to different collimators, GOPView XR2Plus increases the overall performance, providing world-class clarity and confidence for clinical professionals.

·       Three New add-on modules for GOPView XR2Plus will be shown including Intelligent Exposure Index (EI) based on the relevant region of the image i.e. true tissue. ContextVision will also show its Defect Correct Library (DCL) as well as Doctors interface (DI) for end user image control.

·       GOPView iRVUltra – ContextVision’s second generation of image enhancement technology for interventional radiology, GOPView iRVUltra, has unprecedented success in reducing noise while enhancing fine structures and edges. This ultimately allows for significantly improved image quality while maintaining patient dose, or, alternatively, preserved image quality using a lower patient dose. Initial studies have shown that image quality can be maintained while reducing dose levels by up to 50%.

“Our ultra-fast algorithms for 3D/4D image enhancement allow doctors improved diagnostic value in 2D planes as well as in 3D renderings,” said Anita Tollstadius, ContextVision CEO. “These additional dimensions are essential to ultrasound examinations because they decrease the risk of not having acquired the entire anatomy, as could be the case with a 2D examination. With 3D, the whole anatomy can be acquired with one single scan.”
