TeraRecon Advances Integrated Quantitative Imaging at ECR 2012
TeraRecon announced the release of version 4.4.7 of its iNtuition enterprise advanced visualization image management solution, with enhanced support for interoperability and quantitative imaging, at the 23rd European Congress of Radiology (ECR) meeting in Vienna, Austria, in March 2012.
Quantitative Imaging with iNtuition
Lobular Decomposition is an analysis and segmentation tool that is designed with anatomical structures in mind. For any structure or organ region which is intertwined with a tree-like structure (such as an arterial and/or venous tree), the Lobular Decomposition tool allows the user to select the volume of interest, as well as the trees related to it, and to partition the volume into lobes or territories which are most proximal to the tree or any specific sub-branch thereof. This generic and flexible tool has potential research applications in analysis of the liver, lung, heart and various other organs and pathological structures.
Volumetric Histogram supports analysis of a given volume of interest based on partition of the constituent voxels into populations of different intensity or density ranges. This can be used, for example, to support research into disease processes such as cancer (where it is desirable to analyze the composition of tumors, in an attempt to understand the balance between active tumor, necrotic tissue, and edema), or emphysema (where the population of low-attenuation voxels in a lung computed tomography (CT) examination may be a meaningful indicator of early disease).
Integrating Quantitative Metadata: Measurements and other quantitative results obtained with iNtuition can be reported, tracked, stored, and later mined. In order to facilitate integration of these results into the informatics workflow, iNtuition offers a structured Measurement Protocol feature, to support the export of quantitative metadata into other systems, such as has been demonstrated with voice recognition and reporting solutions from M*Modal and Nuance.
iNtuitionEMV: A key benefit of the iNtuition solution is the integrated distribution capability provided by iNtuitionEMV (Enterprise Medical Viewer), recently highlighted at the annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in late February. iNtuitionEMV is a zero-footprint, multi-modality, browser-based viewer designed to integrate seamlessly with other healthcare informatics systems.
