Decision Support Offered in Advanced Visualization Software

July 19, 2010 – New features of the iNtuition system, including advanced visualization and decision support solutions, were demonstrated during the meeting of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) last week in Las Vegas.

TeraRecon’s Aquarius iNtuition solution provides interpretation tools for cardiac computed tomography (CT), including the AquariusAPS advanced pre-processing server, which automatically detects cardiac anatomy, identifies vascular structures and prepares centerlines and segmentation treatments, so less time is spent interpreting the case. In addition, at SCCT 2010, TeraRecon demonstrated prototype centerline cross-section analytics (CCSA), which enable the system to draw attention to areas of potential concern in the coronary vessels, based on the diameter profile along the centerline.

In addition, iNtuition also offers time-volume analysis tools for cardiac functional analysis, and coronary calcium scoring capability. All these features are continually being optimized to perform with lower and lower dose profiles during the initial acquisition, to enable cardiac CT imagers to minimize radiation exposure without compromising interpretation quality.

This suite of tools is unified into a single interpretation workflow through the TeraRecon-exclusive “Workflow Template” concept, which defines a structured workflow for interpreting the case. The result of following a Workflow Template is a Workflow Scene – a package of findings and interactive representations thereof that can be readily distributed and archived for future reference. This suite of clinical tools is offered on a fully client-server platform that can be accessed from any PC. TeraRecon’s “iNtuition Unlimited” licensing model makes it possible for the system to support an unlimited number of CT slices per user.

Then TeraRecon leverages the same client-server architecture to provide web-based access to the Workflow Scene via patient consultation PC’s, or even mobile devices such as iPhone or iPad. Specialists may access full clinical capabilities too, by launching another instance of TeraRecon’s advanced interpretation user interface.
