Canadian software developer Cedara has released a suite of 3D software plug-in components for examining CT and MR images. The products, collectively called Cedara Vivace, allow equipment manufacturers wanting to offer advanced 3D visualization to easily plug the new software into imaging workstations already installed in the field or into new medical imaging devices. In market previews, companies reported being able to plug Vivace into their products in less than a week. Cedara Vivace adapts to the look and feel of its host application. Once plugged in, the 3D software becomes an integral part of the workstation. The suite offers four distinct rendering modes: maximum intensity projection, minimum intensity projection, shaded volume, and unshaded volume, as well as multiplanar reformatting.
