Virtual Heart Adopts Advanced Image Visualization Solution

August 10, 2010 - A cardiovascular image reporting, consulting and training company in Brazil, entered into a multi-user 3Di software licensing contract with Shina Systems. Virtual Heart, the first teleradiology company in Latin America to offer such services, will be able to perform cardiovascular computed tomography (CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reporting in a simple and secured way for any hospital or imaging center within a short time.

Shina Systems’ 3Di is a public, cloud-based medical image management and advanced visualization platform, turning any Internet PC, both in and outside an enterprise, into an imaging workstation.

The agreement with Shina Systems has come after a period of testing real-life scenarios in different configurations, including reading from home using low-bandwidth Internet line, and was found to be easy, fast and interactive.

The solution includes small uploader software that is connected to the institution's imaging network. The uploader receives selected cases over the imaging network and securely and efficiently uploads them to the cloud.

In the cloud, they are automatically preprocessed and ready for reading by authorized physicians from anywhere. The reading is done using 3Di's smart client, which can operate either in online mode utilizing cloud resources or in offline mode, turning the client into an advanced visualization workstation.

With imaging data stored or cached remotely in a cloud, 3Di can ensure safe long-term archiving, higher availability of data and patient information and serve as a data clearinghouse for communication with off-site radiologists, clinicians, surgeons and others who need processed images or raw data for independent manipulation.
