TeraRecon Demos SCCT-Compliant Software Upgrade at ACC

March 30, 2009 - TeraRecon Inc. released Aquarius iNtuition software version 4.4, which has cardiovascular CT interpretation and reporting capabilities that are compliant with guidelines recently established by the Society for Cardiac Computed Tomography (SCCT), and will be demonstrating at the 58th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology in Orlando, FL, from March 29 – 31, 2009.

The SCCT guidelines are established in an article currently in press to be published in to March/April 2009 edition of the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. In the article, the authors outline requirements for interpreting and reporting coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), all of which are supported by TeraRecon’s newly-available Aquarius iNtuition 4.4 software.

The iNtuition solution provides capabilities including advanced coronary analysis with plaque assessment, 4D functional assessment, 4D valvular analysis, EP planning, calcium scoring and a variety of other cardiovascular tools including EVAR planning, all delivered through a thin-client interface that can integrate smoothly with cardiology information management systems and PACS.

iNtuition provides decision support through automated preprocessing that identifies and labels anatomy while automating various segmentation and vascular analysis tasks upon scan completion so that the examination is ready for immediate interpretation once opened by a physician. iNtuition’s “Workflow Template” concept allows interpretation steps to be followed in a logical sequence, with the system presenting each relevant view in turn, based on the anatomical landmarks established by the automated software.

Timely and convenient distribution of results is made possible via a simple web link to the AquariusWEB viewer, which provides interactive 3D image review directly through a web browser or suitable PDA, such as the iPhone.
