ContextVision Enters Interventional Radiology Market With 
GOPView iRVPlus Offering Image Enhancement, Dose Reduction

 

December 5, 2008

December 5, 2008 – ContextVision introduced its GOPView iRVPlus, a new image enhancement and dose reduction software package for interventional radiology, this week at RSNA 2008 in Chicago.

Clinical teams rely on this type of tool during fluoroscopy procedures, such as angioplasty or stent replacement, during which real-time images are used to guide catheters to the target location. GOPView iRVPlus relies on a continuous adaptive filtration method to analyze every pixel in an image, giving every structure in the image the same level of analysis. This rotationally invariant process guarantees that all objects, independent of position and orientation, receive the highest level of image enhancement possible. This eliminates the risk of critical information being overlooked during a procedure, leading to higher clinical value.

Like all ContextVision products, iRVPlus relies on a proprietary algorithm, GOP, which simultaneously enhances all structures and reduces noise. This anisotropic filtration method enhances image quality of all textures so that more details can be seen while introducing less blur. Additionally, an extensive and growing library of adaptive filters fine-tunes images.
