Advanced Visualization Adds Low Dose CT, Robust Tools
Vital Images' Vitrea Enterprise Suite 1.3 offers clinical capabilities, including adult and pediatric cardiac applications, and an enhanced set of workflow tools. Less than six months after releasing the company's 1.2 version, Vital Images is engineered to be reliabile and easy to use via the Web in a thin client solution. New applications include cardiac multichamber analysis with adult and pediatric options that automate atrial and ventricular chamber analysis and leverage low dose computed tomography (CT) scanning protocols. Clinical enhancements to cardiac structural analysis tools, Vessel Probe and Vessel Walk, enable navigation through complex cardiovascular anatomy. A host of additional workflow features support review of CT and magnetic resonance (MR) scans, while a new edge-detecting contouring tool, single-click volume segmentation and improved report access streamline case reviews and enhance communication between clinicians. Vitrea Enterprise Suite 1.3 also now enables Web-based access to MeVis Visia CT Lung, a clinically validated computer-aided detection (CAD) system for chest CT. MeVis' integrates within Vital Images' reading workflow.
