TeraRecon Advances in Cardiac Imaging with Aquarius iNtuition at ASNC 2008

September 11, 2008 - Advanced image-processing and 3D visualization solutions provider TeraRecon Inc. today released new innovations in its flagship Aquarius iNtuition platform at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) Annual Meeting in Boston, Sept. 11-14, 2008.

The company said the Aquarius iNtuition client-server will empower nuclear cardiologists to improve efficiency within their cardiac imaging portfolio. Multi-detector CT is rapidly evolving as a preferred imaging solution within nuclear cardiology. It is quick and noninvasive diagnostic test, however, it creates a tremendously large amount of data. The Aquarius iNtuition platform complements CT technology by providing the power and clinical tools necessary to arrive at an interpretation swiftly, and with confidence, TeraRecon said. The application includes calcium scoring, advanced vessel analysis, functional assessment, plaque analysis, and EP planning. The architecture integrates seamlessly integrates with cardiology PACS solutions, offers decision support through automated preprocessing, advanced interpretation tools for the diagnosing physician, and simple interactive Web-based distribution tools for disseminating the results of interpretation to their intended recipient.

TeraRecon’s automated preprocessing system, AquariusAPS, reportedly automatically identifies and labels cardiac anatomy, and then performs automatic segmentation and centerline extraction, to prepare the examination for the speediest diagnostic interpretation. Streamlined and customer-tailored Workflow Templates speed the process of navigation through the dataset so that the physician can apply their time and concentration to clinical interpretation.

The all thin-client Aquarius iNtuition solution allows access to multi-modality review of MR, nuclear medicine, PET/CT, angio/cath, US/echo, CR and DR, from any networked PC, enterprise-wide, and even hand-held devices via AquariusWEB.

AquariusWEB delivers a simple user interface designed to facilitate a volumetric image review experience that requires no advanced training requirements. AquariusWEB is supported directly by modern Web browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari without requiring any installation or administrative privileges. No plug-in, Java or ActiveX controls are required. AquariusWEB allows volumetric and interactive Scenes to be reviewed by end users who would otherwise be prohibited access by institutional security policies that prevent the downloading or installing of software. The AquariusWEB viewer can also enable embedding of live, interactive scenes into electronic medical records and physician web portals. It is even possible to open and manipulate volumetric images on the iPhone.
