ContextVision Unveils Volumetric Ultrasound Image Enhancement Tool

April 1, 2009 – At the 2009 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Annual Convention this week, ContextVision, the software imaging partner for the most recognized medical imaging manufacturers worldwide, will introduce GOPiCE US, the first real-time volumetric filtering software for ultrasound.

The image enhancement product filters the three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound volumes, removing speckle and other artifacts, while simultaneously extending the clinician’s vision to planes previously hidden.

GOPiCE offers clinicians the ability to see areas never seen before, such as the regions of the fetal brain previously hidden by speckle and noise in two-dimensional and unenhanced three-dimensional ultrasound images. The unprecedented visualization achieved using GOPiCE will ultimately lead to improved diagnostic value. Additionally, GOPiCE minimizes processing time: it leverages the speed of graphics processing units (GPUs), processing up to 24 volumes per second at 128x128x128 pixels or 40 volumes in single planar reconstruction mode.

Like all ContextVision products, GOPiCE US relies on an adaptive algorithm, GOP, which mimics the human eye’s method of finding information and analyzing structures. This enables the software to distinguish between true and false information (e.g. noise, artifacts) and accurately identify true structures.

To learn more about GOPiCE or see a product demonstration, stop by booth 211at AIUM. Available this week, the software easily integrates into modern software-based ultrasound systems and is available on either a GPU or CPU.
