Software Assesses Parameters for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Stent Planning


September 27, 2010

A new plug-in quickly and easily assesses clinically relevant parameters for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) stent planning. Aycan, a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) manufacturer and systems integrator for radiology departments, and SOVAmed GmbH announced a partnership in the area of medical post-processing and their first joint project, SOVA.evar.

The system is a plug-in designed by SOVAmed using aycan’s Mac-based OsiriX Pro visualization software (a CE-marked and FDA-certified version of the successful Open Source DICOM viewer OsiriX). It and allows vascular surgeons and radiologists to plan endovascular and stent graft-specific measurements and visualization tasks quickly and easily based on their angiographic images. As an output of the application, users receive stent-graft sheets from major manufacturers, including measured parameters, and screenshots of the visualizations for the documentation of the procedure.

This solution was introduced in September 2010.
