Viatronix, Medicsight Gain CE Mark for Polyp Detection

June 13, 2007 – New York based Viatronix Inc. and Medicsight PLC headquartered in London, announced today their recent CE Mark and the joint European commercial release of their integrated Viatronix V3D-Colon and Medicsight ColonCAD API, "virtual colonoscopy" products that are integrated to aid physicians in the early detection and identification of polyps.

The Viatronix V3D-Colon allows physicians to interactively view the colon as reconstructed from a CT (Computed Tomography) scan, providing visualization of the entire colon where polyps or other lesions may be located. Viatronix's V3D-Colon is reportedly the only system on the market that is backed by a landmark multi-center clinical trial showing 93.9 percent sensitivity and 92.2 percent specificity for adenomatous polyps sized 8mm and larger.

Medicsight ColonCAD API is an image-analysis software tool designed for use with CT Colonography (virtual colonoscopy) scans to assist radiologists in detecting and measuring potential colorectal polyps. Medicsight's ColonCAD products are seamlessly integrated within the advanced 3D visualisation and PACS platforms of industry-leading imaging equipment partners.
