April 9, 2015 — VisionSR announced that it has licensed an advanced multimedia structured reporting technology from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center designed to advance the practice of diagnostic radiology. The technology has the potential to create personalized health records, support clinical trial management and facilitate big data applications.

Vision works by capturing key diagnostic images and radiologists’ voice descriptions, tagging the images with terminology describing anatomical locations and radiological diagnoses, and assembling a multimedia structured report with these data. The system provides a means to link image findings from serial exams to generate disease timelines for each specific site of disease.

Vision integrates additional medical information to create a “lifetime medical” graph depicting a patient’s major medical events as icons overlaid on an interactive timeline. By clicking on an event, information in a patient’s records about specific medical events is made readily available.

The system can also aggregate quantitative metrics from serial radiological studies to automate disease response criteria, such as the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Vision offers a means to data mine information contained in these disease timelines and lifetime graphs to yield outcomes in patient cohorts.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
