Vital Images, Intel Boost Processing Speed for Radiology

November 10, 2009 - Vital Images and Intel, a world leader in silicon innovation, have integrated Intel’s Xeon 5500 processor series into Vital Images’ advanced visualization solution with the aim of decreasing clinical dataset load times compared to previous capabilities.

As datasets continue to increase in size, which is particularly prevalent in cardiovascular and neurological cases, the need for quick clinical information becomes critical. The result of combining technologies is more efficient workflows, improved performance, reduced costs and a positive impact on patient care.

Vital Images volumetric compression was specifically designed to take advantage of the latest microprocessor technology from Intel called Xeon 5500 processor series. For example, the processing of a
4D brain perfusion study in Vital Images’ Vitrea fX software – with no changes to the algorithm code – is 34 percent faster on an Intel Xeon 5500 processor series than on an identically clocked Intel Xeon
processor 5482 series. The improved processing speed provides cost savings and increased efficiency by decreasing the time to read studies, enabling more studies to be read in a the same amount of time.
