June 5, 2009 - TeraRecon Inc. highlighted multitouch, automation and open interface features on its Aquarius iNtuition advanced visualization solution, which resonate with presentations at the 2009 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) meeting June 4-7 in Charlotte, N.C.
At SIIM 2009, updates on research, development and implementations of imaging informatics advances are presented by academics and professionals in the field. TeraRecon’s Aquarius iNtuition platform for advanced visualization is a comprehensive, client-server, enterprise solution for advanced visualization that incorporates many features closely in tune with the concepts and visions expressed at the SIIM meeting. Examples of such applications are as follows:
Open API for integrating research algorithms:
Research and development of algorithms such as segmentation and computer aided detection (CAD) can proceed to a certain extent in a “laboratory” setting, where algorithms are developed and tested on sample cases in a controlled environment . However, in order to obtain real-world experience with such algorithms, it is necessary to deploy them into the real diagnostic interpretation workflow, which can often be challenging since most vendors of diagnostic interpretation systems do not support such integration of external algorithms. TeraRecon’s Aquarius iNtuition includes the AquariusAPS server which hosts a wide variety of automatic image processing algorithms which can be applied in a rules-based manner on any imaging data acquired by an institution’s scanners. AquariusAPS also supports an open application programming interface (API) for “plugging in” third-party algorithms, in order that they may be applied to an institution’s imaging data (even historically) and the results then observed in the context of the normal Aquarius iNtuition diagnostic user interface. The algorithm reported on by Mayo Clinic  is being integrated into the AquariusAPS server (for internal use only) by a Mayo Clinic team using this API, as an example of such an integration.
