TeraRecon's iNtuition 3D Solution Showcases Endovascular, Surgical Planning Clinical Tools

The Aquarius iNtuition advanced visualization solution from TeraRecon features new innovations in endovascular and interventional planning software.

Accurate endograft planning is of paramount importance for procedural success. "It can be said that 90 percent of the battle is won or lost before stepping into the operating room," said W. Anthony Lee, M.D., associate professor of surgery, Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. This is why imaging physicians are seeking imaging methods that provide accurate pre-operative planning for surgeons and subsequent follow-up. Multi-detector CT rises to the challenge and provides high-resolution volumetric data sets that can easily be rendered with Aquarius iNtuition. The company said this enables unprecedented morphologic and dimensional anatomic analysis.

The company said Aquarius iNtuition offers best-in-class interventional planning tools combined with "anytime, anywhere" access to interactive 3D visualization from to any PC via the company's client-server technology. Aquarius iNtuition's endograft planning tool delivers a workflow that is seamless with the aid of automatic segmentation of centerlines and anatomy ID labeling. Together with easily-determined fixation points, the appropriate measurements are reported in the embedded thoracic and abdominal endograft templates for grafts from Cook, Medtronic, Gore, Bolton and Endologix. post-operative evaluation can easily be achieved with customized 3D templates that can help identify endoleaks, aneurysm growth and the integrity of implanted devices, the company said.

Aquarius iNtuition also features AquariusWEB, a browser-based viewer to support delivery of live, interactive, 3D reports to the interventionalists and surgeons who are the end-users of the imaging data. AquariusWEB gives the possibility to the physicians to open a URL link sent via an e-mail or embedded in the patient report and have instant access to review and interact with the volumetric dataset. No plug in or installation is required, as AquariusWEB works on a standard Web browser such as Internet Explorer 6 or 7, Firefox 1.5, 2.0 or version 3, as well as Mac and Unix-based browsers. AquariusWEB also features a mobile edition compatible with the iPhone

Aquarius iNtuition can also leverage wireless control technologies that are candidates for use in the OR, including the Gyromouse and the Nintendo Wii controller.
