CT, PET Cases Star in Workstation Face-Off at ECR

March 10, 2010 - The third annual Workstation Face-Off at the 22nd European Congress of Radiology, held in Vienna, Austria, and hosted by radiologists Anno Graser M.D., and Christoph Becker, M.D., of the Ludwig-Maximillians University in Munich, featured two challenging cases involving oncology and perfusion imaging and analysis with CT and PET, for three sequential timepoints.

TeraRecon participated as a fully independent vendor of enterprise advanced visualization solutions, with its thin client / server based iNtuition solution. Presenting for TeraRecon, Dr. Med. Christopher Herzog, Chief of Radiology at the Red Cross Clinic in Munich, Germany, performed all the tasks well within the allotted time using TeraRecon’s Aquarius iNtuition software. The first of these challenging cases was completed with over 40 seconds of the allotted 4 minutes remaining, which no other participant achieved, implying a potential 15% increase in productivity through the application of iNtuition algorithms and workflow techniques.

Two of the participants utilized dedicated stand alone workstations for the tasks, which represent a workflow impediment in clinical practice, while another two utilized a combination of thin-client server and workstation software with switching between multiple user interfaces to achieve the necessary clinical interpretation.

Presenting for TeraRecon, Dr. Med. Christopher Herzog, chief of Radiology at the Red Cross Clinic in Munich, Germany, performed all the tasks within the allotted time using TeraRecon’s Aquarius iNtuition software. Dr. Herzog completed the first of these challenging cases with over 40 seconds of the allotted 4 minutes remaining. TeraRecon completed all tasks through a single, unified user interface, with no need to differentiate between a core or basic users, and advanced users and most importantly no need to rely on thick-client workstation software architecture.

The face-off this year helped to highlight the true value of and convenience of thin-client.
