Viewing Tools Assist Radiologists With More Efficient Reads

McKesson's VTRIP.

May 27, 2010 - Radiologists are reading increasing volumes of image data. Tools that assist them in calling up images, scrolling through to key findings and using 3-D applications can be a tremendous help in efficiently interpreting and completing reports.

To improve radiology workflow, VTRIP is designed to allow for the more efficient reading of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) studies making both the technologist and radiologists more efficient by seamlessly embedding advanced viewing, image analysis and reconstruction capabilities directly into their normal workflow.

It allows faster case reading times, scan to read times, and potentially, increased scanner utilization. Faster reading times are accomplished by introducing:
• Dynamic slab visualization (scan thin, read thick, vary as needed)
• Dynamic oblique multi-planar reformat (view anatomy at any angle)
• Multiple intensity projection options (AveIP, MIP, minIP)
• Automatic documentation of key findings in derived views
• Multiplanar reconstructions (MPR) viewports grouped to use same W/L and zoom/pan
• Triangulation to quickly zoom to point in multiple MPR views and back

All of the above is done within the familiar HRS user interface. No longer do you need to launch external 3-D viewer for these common tasks. VTRIP is available as an integral part of display protocols. Annotations, flagging, zoom/pan, etc., all work the same as with original 2D slices with little or no additional user training required.
McKesson will feature VTRIP at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine’s (SIIM) annual meeting held June 3 to 6 in Minneapolis, in booth 319.
