TeraRecon Exhibits at RSNA 2008 Win Cum Laude Awards

January 8, 2009 - Two RSNA exhibits featuring Aquarius iNtuition by TeraRecon won Cum Laude awards at the recent 94th annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Scientific Assembly at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, Nov. 30 - Dec. 5, 2008.

These two prototype “proof of concept” awards reportedly provided new ways for clinicians to expand usability of CT and MR volumetric data sets and to be able to use that flexibility to communicate and share information throughout the radiology informatics environment. Physicians from the University of Maryland and VA Baltimore worked with TeraRecon engineering to develop these award-winning exhibits.

The first award exhibit, was entitled, A Truly Clientless AJAX-based 3D Image Viewer for MIRC Based on an IHE-TCE-Compliant 3D Client-Server Solution. This winning exhibit featured the AquariusWEB viewer, which was embedded seamlessly into the RSNA Medical Imaging Resource Center (MIRC) project for managing image-based teaching files for educational and research purposes.

The second award exhibit was entitled, Novel Uses of the Nintendo Wii Remote in the Navigation of Multidetector CT Datasets. In this instance, the Wii-mote was used as an alternative to traditional mouse-based input, to manipulate and review volumetric CT data. The flexibility of holding the Wii-mote in the hand removes the structured boundaries of a normal mouse and allows the user to remove the learning curve sometimes needed to manipulate a PC mouse.

Another exhibit utilized a “Multi-Touch” display to navigate volumetric CT and MR datasets. This technology allows users to manipulate data directly with their fingers through a touch screen and promises to remove the learning curve and constraints of a traditional mouse or trackball, icons and pull down menus.
