GE’s New Software Packages Offer Improved Image Clarity, Better Precision

June 16, 2008 - GE Healthcare launched new software packages for its Infinia Hawkeye 4-slice SPECT/CT at SNM 2008.

The new Volumetrix Suite consists of two applications that aim to deliver image clarity and diagnostic confidence with precise detection and localization of disease, the Volumetrix 3D and Volumetrix IR.

Volumetrix 3D offers improved clarity, helping to manage large amounts of data more effectively by working to provide an accurate, interactive, 3D rendered fused image of the entire nuclear medicine study. Volumetrix 3D’s segmentation tools can reportedly help improve diagnostic accuracy by removing obstructions surrounding lesions and other areas of interest. Volumetrix 3D also offers a Clip and Cut Planes feature, which allows the anatomy to be “virtually sliced” to show the underlying cross-section of the CT, nuclear or fused slices. The software presents avisual abstract of the exam very quickly and comprehensively for use by the referring physician or surgeon.

Volumetrix IR offers clinicians the choice of registering virtually any CT to the Infinia SPECT data, within the nuclear medicine workflow. This feature is said to eliminate the need for patients to undergo a redundant full-dose CT exam during a SPECT acquisition by using the Hawkeye CT as a guide to register an external CT to the Infinia SPECT data. By offering registration of virtually any CT with Infinia Hawkeye 4 data, Volumetrix IR reportedly presents the clinician with more choices while minimizing ownership costs.

The Volumetrix Suite is designed to provide users outstanding convenience as well. Follow-up scans are made easier as Volumetrix IR aligns two exams, helping to ensure accurate monitoring of the patient’s condition. Three-dimensional rendered images created by Volumetrix 3D are exported into a variety of formats including .jpg files for sharing with referring physicians, surgeons and the patients themselves.
