GE Medical Systems offers an interactive glimpse of its AutoBone software for the Advantage Workstation at the 2003 RSNA meeting. The product enables clinicians to remove bone structure from diagnostic images.

AutoBone allows clinicians to see blood vessels that are otherwise hidden and optimizes surgical pathways with more precise information. It can minimize the invasiveness of certain procedures and increase diagnostic confidence, according to GE.

"Clinicians have the flexibility to see as much or as little of the transparent bone as they like and save hours of manual segmentation," said Jennifer Dible, GE Medical Systems general manager for Advantage Workstation.

Integration of the Advantage Workstation with Centricity PACS and is also being demonstrated in Chicago as a work-in-progress. Using the Centricity work list to drive workflow, radiologists and other users may have full use of the Advantage's broad array of clinical features without leaving the PACS viewing context, Dible said.
