Upgrades to Ultrasound Imaging Focus on Color Enhancement

January 21, 2008 - Boston Scientific Corp. announced a third software enhancement to its iLab Ultrasound Imaging System, the iLab System 1.3, which is designed to strengthen physician confidence in the diagnosis and intervention of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and increase workflow efficiency.

The enhancements are designed to give physicians the ability to preview device-sizing decisions, colorize plaque and blood flow and overlay color to enrich viewing the IVUS image. Specifically, the iSize feature allows the user to preview device sizing decisions by displaying area and length measurement graphics in the cross-sectional and longview images, and assists the physician to determine appropriate sized devices for use in coronary procedures. The iColor feature reportedly enhances image interpretation by adding color to the cross-sectional view, coloring plaque and lumen based on Trace Assist for quick image interpretation. An overlay of color to the IVUS screen at the discretion of the physician is made possible by the iTint feature. Additional features include the ability to perform a new run with the push of a button and an icon magnification tool.

Automated medical imaging views using deep learning, artificial intelligence, Philips Epiq

GE, Siemens and Philips are among the echocardiography vendors that incorporate deep learning algorithms into its echo software to help automatically extract standard imaging views from 3-D ultrasound datasets. This is an example of the Philips Epiq system, which uses the vendor's Anatomical Intelligence software to define the anatomical structures and automatically display standard diagnostic views of the anatomy without human intervention. This can greatly speed workflow and reduce inter-operator variability.
