Toronto-based Cedara Software has released the latest version of I-SoftView, integrating its proprietary form of 3D volume rendering, also known as Point and Click classification, into a PACS workstation. The implementation enables quick, automated separation of tissues with minimum user interaction. Predefined protocols are applied and an image rendered with a single mouse click. The key benefit to end users and its major point of differentiation from other products in the market is the "intelligence" provided by the algorithm, which allows fast and automated recognition of anatomical structures. Another enhancement, called single media archiving, acts as an off-line archive, enabling the healthcare facility to store patient data on a magnetic optical disk (MOD) or CD. With this, users also have the option of giving patients a copy of their studies.
