Platform Combines 3D Viewing, Decision Support

November 29, 2009 - A new advanced visualization and decision support software upgrade is designed to improve management of CT stroke protocols and 3D or 2D viewing. It also provides electronic medical record (EMR) integration.

Version 4.4.5 of iNtuition advanced visualization software by TeraRecon Inc. offers a wide range of new clinical enhancements, image delivery methods and architectural improvements. These include the following:

A feature to manage your CT stroke protocols uses volumetric time-dependent analysis (TDA) speeds management of 320-slice, 160-slice and 128-slice CT examinations performed to study brain perfusion, including automated AquariusAPS pre-processing to minimize wait times and enable prompt interpretation of time-sensitive data.

The new viewer supports 3D or 2D viewing of the image data contained on the disk. Real-time volume rendering is supported including slab MIP, cut-planes and cube views. Embedded software on the CD performs these features running on any ordinary PC with no network connectivity required.

With stand-alone support there is no need for network access when using the alternate software rendering mode.

The new server form-factors allow a fully-featured iNtuition solution to run on a single 1U server in low volume environments. A fully- redundant enterprise-class system capable of supporting many facilities and serving more than 35 fully-featured users is accomplished in just 8U of server rack space.

EMR integration is made easy with no need to load pre-generated URL links into patient reports. Only published studies can be viewed from the EMR, providing a seamless workflow for all patient reports.

The new iNtuition Virtual Client Concentrator enables browser-based access to multiple iNtuition clients at once, requiring only the addition of a single 1U server to your iNtuition installation.

Expanded endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) planning tools include automatic calculation of sac volume and a clock face overlay for making
angular assessments required for fenestrated and branch graft planning.

Accelerated colonography reading now features a broad range of new views, tools and preferences to customize the reading environment, lower learning curves and increase efficiency.

The platform lets the user assess parametric color maps of time-dependent MR studies to rapidly assess tissue kinetics.

This version supports RADLEX terminology lookup with auto-completion of terms, and annotation and image markup (AIM) compliant export of findings for integration with workflow and research databases.

A new surgical planning tool includes clock face and distance to the nipple. BiRADS classification is supported in the reporting module.

The new version also aims to simplify PET/CT image fusion with the “spinning man” tool with auto triangulation of all views, and new image series hanging protocols.

TeraRecon is featuring the solution at the 95th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at McCormick Place, Chicago.
