Interventional X-ray Solution Lowers Dose Yet Enhances Image

ContextVision's X-ray product line includes an image enhancement and dose reduction software package for interventional radiology.

ContextVision’s GOPView iRVPlus uses a continuous adaptive filtration method to analyze every pixel in an image, which guarantees that every structure in the image receives the same level of analysis. This rotationally invariant process ensures that all objects, independent of position and orientation, receive the highest level of image enhancement possible. This eliminates the risk of critical information being overlooked, leading to higher clinical value.

Like all ContextVision products, iRVPlus relies on a proprietary algorithm, GOP, which simultaneously enhances all structures and reduces noise. This anisotropic filtration method enhances image quality of all textures so that more details can be seen while introducing less blur. Additionally, an extensive and growing library of adaptive filters fine-tunes images. This level of image enhancement can enable a dose reduction of more than one-third without any compromise of image quality.
