Vital Images Releases Next-Generation Enterprise-Wide Solutions

August 21, 2007 - Vital Images announced it has released its next-generation enterprise-wide advanced visualization and analysis product solutions with the release of Vitrea 4.0 and ViTALConnect 4.1.

These releases reportedly include significant enhancements to the company's powerful cardiovascular, neurovascular and gastrointestinal applications as well as improved Web-based cardiovascular analysis and distribution capabilities.

In addition to the new version enhancements, the company also released ViTAL EP, a new electrophysiology (EP) planning application to augment its cardiovascular suite of products.
Enhancements to the company's Vitrea 4.0 workstation-client release include cardiovascular workflow enhancements such as automatic segmentation and probing of the coronary tree, easier vessel management and labeling, easy centerline editing and comprehensive reporting with automatic population of findings.
The release also includes neurovascular improvements and improved colon enhancements.

ViTAL's Web-client enhancements in the ViTALConnect 4.1 release include new cardiovascular tools, including automatic segmentation of the coronary tree, centerline editing and automatic stenosis calculation all designed to increase efficiency and productivity. Additional enhancements include improved 2D performance and integrated reporting features. The combined workstation and Web-client solution reportedly enables a streamlined workflow designed to improve efficiency.
"What I demonstrated live at the recent Stanford course - loading and analyzing a 5,020 slice study over the Web-client - I could have done from my house using my laptop," said Dr. Tony DeFrance, medical director of the CVCTA Education Center in San Francisco. "I routinely use the 'workstation-client' but it's nice to know that I can use the same powerful tools remotely using the Web-client."
The new EP planning application, ViTAL EP, contains a 3D advanced visualization and modeling tool for the EP lab. ViTAL
EP automatically segments out the pulmonary veins and creates a 3D anatomic model of the heart for super-imposed EP mapping. ViTAL EP also automatically exports a 3D model for display on the on St. Jude Medical’s EnSite System, which is used to facilitate therapy for the treatment of arrhythmias.
