New Software Highlights Ultrasound Color Enhancement

A third round of software enhancements has been made to the iLab System 1.3, an ultrasound imaging system 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 long-view 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.
