InSpace offers one-click bone removal

June 1, 2005

Bone appearing on CT scans can be selectively removed with a mouse click, in this case, in front of the heart, using a new application built into the InSpace 4D program from Siemens Medical Solutions. The One Click Bone Removal application, which cleared the FDA in February, promises to make diagnosis of vascular problems easier. The application automatically segments and removes bony structures from CT angiograms. It can be set to show only bone, no bone, or soft and hard tissue. InSpace 4D is designed to assist physicians in the visualization and interactive review of large data sets commonly generated during multislice CT and MR exams. It can postprocess sets of up to 2000 images each in a 512-squared matrix of pixels. (Provided by Siemens Medical Solutions)
