March 22, 2016 — ContextVision exhibited its range of 2-D/3-D/4-D image enhancement software at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 2-6 in Vienna, Austria. Product showcases included GOPiCE 2.0, REALiCE, US PLUSView 2.0 for ultrasound and GOPView XR2lus for X-ray, including the popular add-on products.

GOPiCE 2.0 is the second generation of ContextVision’s 3-D/4-D image enhancement software, providing original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with the best ultrasound image quality available, according to the company. ContextVision said it is the only product on the market for real-time volumetric image processing for ultrasound. Recent upgrades to the software include the ability to optimize image quality for different visualization techniques, both multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and rendered view; intelligent near- and far-field processing that guarantees excellent image quality throughout the whole volume; and, by utilizing information from adjacent planes in the 3-D volume, processing and delivering a clearer image.

ContextVision also showcased REALiCE, the company’s visualization software incorporating GOPiCE 2.0. True-to-data rendering technology provides unique views of anatomies, including photo-like images, and supports early fetal diagnosis. With clearer imaging, standard fetus measurements become more accurate. Recently added to REALiCE are the Skeletal View, Surface Rendering View and Depth Color Coding View. The most up-to-date Photographic View for REALiCE was also presented at ECR.

US PLUSView 2.0 is ContextVision’s fifth generation 2-D enhancement product. To further strengthen the offering, the company has applied advanced temporal filtering, including motion compensation, an advancement that results in the highest image quality. Additionally, an upgraded doctors’ interface — enabling ultrasound manufacturers to adjust image quality according to customers’ preferences or provide a user interface directly to clinicians — is now available. Another tool is the US PLUSView tuning tool that offers OEM flexibility in parameter optimization to satisfy various preferences.

GOPView XR2Plus image enhancement technology for X-ray offers sophisticated adaptive technology for noise suppression; edge/contrast enhancement; and effective dynamic latitude compression. Exposure index software, which automatically monitors the digital X-ray system to deliver accurate exposure measurements to patients, is also an available option. The tuning tools incorporated into GOPView XR2 Plus also allow manufacturers to maintain and improve the control of the image processing parameters for optimal customer satisfaction. Additionally, the company offers a Doctors’ Interface where the manufacturers easily can include image enhancement controls for the end customer/hospital.

At ECR 2016, ContextVision also participated in the poster exhibition of the European Society of Radiology’s EuroSafe Imaging radiation protection campaign. The company exhibited research, which used ContextVision’s GOPView iRVUltra technology, identifying techniques for successfully reducing radiation dose while maintaining, if not improving, image quality.
