Ultrasound Color Highlights Plaque

A third round of software enhancements made to the iLab System 1.3, an ultrasound imaging system designed to strengthen physician confidence in the diagnosis and intervention of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and increase workflow efficiency, will be on display at ACC 2008.

The enhancements are designed to give physicians the ability to preview device-sizing decisions, colorize plaque and blood flow and overlay color to enrich viewing the IVUS image. Specifically, the iSize feature allows the user to preview device-sizing decisions by displaying area and length measurement graphics in the cross-sectional and longview images, and assists the physician to determine appropriate-sized devices for use in coronary procedures.

The iColor feature reportedly enhances image interpretation by adding color to the cross-sectional view, coloring plaque and lumen based on Trace Assist for quick image interpretation. An overlay of color to the IVUS screen at the discretion of the physician is made possible by the iTint feature. Additional features include the ability to perform a new run with the push of a button and an icon magnification tool.
