AVT, a new advanced visualization solution from Barco, reportedly answers the demand for instant access to 3D anywhere, anytime. With AVT, doctors can read volumetric studies throughout the hospital, in a remote office or even at home.
AVT is said to put an end to 3D being largely restricted to diagnostic workstations in dedicated reading rooms. This true thin-client solution enables users to access advanced visualization with a basic PC and a standard network connection or broadband service. The high-performance server architecture that AVT is based upon employs state-of-the-art graphics processing and image distribution technology that provides full functionality over low bandwidth. This guarantees smooth distribution of advanced visualization over the hospital’s network as well as to remote offices and homes using a standard broadband connection. In addition, the server architecture is fully scalable.
According to the company, AVT’s seamless integration with major PACS solutions enables users to open 3D images with one mouse click from their PACS. All demographic details are synchronized between AVT and the PACS, so any changes made on one platform are automatically updated in the other.
AVT offers a complete family of advanced visualization tools to meet the specific needs of all physicians:
1. AVT Reader provides everything for high-volume, general reading of CT, MR and PET in one simple package.
2. AVT Vessel is dedicated to quick, accurate quantitative analysis of CTA and MRA studies, with a workflow streamlined for vascular analysis and stent-graft planning.
3. AVT Cardia-S provides quantitative structural analysis of CT cardiac studies.
4. AVT Cardia-F offers quantitative functional analysis of CT cardiac studies, with a similar workflow to Cardia-S.
