Germany-based TomTec Imaging Systems has developed a real-time volumetric rendering system, called 4D Cardio-View. 4D Cardio-View is compatible with stand-alone Windows NT workstations and existing TomTec 3-D workstations. The new system supports the display and evaluation of dynamic 3-D ultrasound images, captured either through transesophageal or transthoracic echo. Driving the system is VolumePro computing technology built by Real Time Visualization, which was recently purchased from Mitsubishi Electric by TeraRecon (SCAN 2/14/01).
