FiatLux Introduces Enhancements to Visualize 3D Application

FiatLux Imaging will highlight anywhere, any time 3D image analysis on laptop, tablet and new ultra-mobile computers as well as other viewing features for radiologists and other medical specialists at RSNA 2008.

Ushering in new possibilities for high-quality, affordable 3D medical image visualization, FiatLux Visualize — which debuted following FDA-clearance in August — harnesses the power of video game technology to set new standards in 3D image quality and processing speed. The software takes advantage of DirectX game programming technologies and the untapped potential of today’s video graphic cards to deliver stunning image reformations from CT and MRI scans.

Along with enhanced image quality, FiatLux Visualize offers healthcare professionals an affordable and flexible alternative to traditional, costly, dedicated 3D processing workstations. Without the need for costly hardware-intensive image processing, the reportedly easy-to-use FiatLux Visualize application runs on commodity-priced PCs and now on a full range of portable computers. As the role of mobile computing grows in healthcare, FiatLux Visualize brings 3D images to everyday conferences, bedside for patient consultations, and into physician’s homes, or virtually anywhere — all without a significant financial investment, said the company.

FiatLux Visualize supports a range of today’s 3D and advanced 2D image processing protocols, including MIP, MPR, and advanced volume reconstruction comparable to high-priced dedicated workstations on the market today.
