INFINITT to Show Web-based PACS with 3D Visualization Software at ECR


March 4, 2009 – INFINITT will present Xelis, a new line of clinical imaging tools using volume rendering and other post-processing techniques designed for improved visualization, treatment planning and workflow, which is expecting CE approval in March 2009.

INFINITT developed the Xelis line of products as fully-integrated software modules for their web-based PACS. This advanced visualization software is designed for fast data loading and reconstruction of large-volume data sets, while the web-based technology reportedly enables access from any Internet-connected or wireless PC.

The company’s product Xelis-Colon is designed to improve detection of colorectal polyps through correlation of 2D and 3D images, and to enhance radiologist productivity with its workflow and reporting tools. The Xelis product line also includes Xelis Lung Solution, Xelis Cardiac, Xelis Fusion and Xelis Dental.

Xelis-Colon uses endoluminal fly-through techniques that allow the radiologist and gastroenterologist to view the entire surface of the inside of the colon in a single, unfolded view. Xelis-Colon software includes various review modes (2D and 3D), synchronized 2D-3D views, automatic segmentation, stool tagging and measurement tools. These visualization techniques, combined with workflow and reporting features, are expected to shorten interpretation time by as much as 20-30 percent.

Xelis-Lung Solution improves utilization of MDCT (multi-row detector computed tomography) data and offers automated nodule detection for both solid and GGO (ground glass opacity) -type nodules. It provides automatic 3D nodule volume measurements and other key statistics useful in nodule classification. The system provides three viewing modes: one for manual-detected nodule review followed by manual-detected nodule review followed by auto-detected review, and one for concurrent manual and automatic detection review.

Xelis-Cardiac’s Vessel Analysis package includes one-click auto vessel tracing, MPR-view, angio-emulation view, segmentation functions, automatic ribcage removal, C-CPR (compare curved planar reformation), stenosis and soft plaque analysis, and automatic calcium scoring. Xelis Cardiac solution improves utilization of multi-slice CT data and improves radiologists' productivity.

Xelis Fusion software allows the radiologist or technologist to fuse the data from two different exams, whether they are from the same modality or from different modalities. Cancer visualization and anatomic mapping is a major application for fusion technology, as seen in the widespread acceptance of PET/CT fusion. The PET exam pinpoints metabolic activity and the CT exam provides an anatomical reference. When the scans are fused together, the radiologist can view metabolic changes in the proper anatomical context.

Xelis Fusion software offers both automatic and manual registration methods, quantitative analysis tools and rapid image navigation using only a few mouse clicks. The software supports 3D region of interest (ROI) analysis, volume measurements, a variety of presets and calculation of PET standard uptake values (SUV). Image data can be fused in any combination of the modalities: PET/MR, PET/CT, MR/MR, CT/MR, CT/CT, SPECT/CT, etc.
