TeraRecon, Inc. (www.terarecon.com), a leader in advanced visualization and decision support, today highlighted Integration and Interconnectivity of the iNtuitionTM enterprise advanced visualization solution to imaging and informatics professionals assembled for the Annual Meeting of the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM).  

Integration – iNtuition has previously been integrated to all major PACS solutions, via its open integration interface with command-line and URL launch options for the iNtuition Client, which also allows seamless integration to other healthcare informatics systems including RIS and EMR.

At SIIM 2011, new enhancements now enable the same level of integration for iNtuition deployments via the Virtual Client ConcentratorTM (VCC), which enables fully browser-based operation of the entire suite of iNtuition thin client advanced visualization tools, greatly simplifying enterprise management of client machines.

Since integrated, browser-based deployments are now possible, this technology can be leveraged not only from an in-house iNtuition deployment, but also with integration to iNtuition CLOUDTM, removing the need for in-house hardware.

Interconnectivity – iNtuition has long featured industry-leading technology for scalability across multiple servers, and sites, such as Mutual AwarenessTM.

At SIIM 2011, new features are introduced which enable truly innovative cross-deployment between in-house iNtuition solutions, Private Cloud deployments based on VCC, and the Internet-based iNtuition CLOUD service offering.

New Reverse UploadTM technology makes possible the return of DICOM results created in the CLOUD to an in-house PACS, allow complete integration of the iNtuition CLOUD service into the diagnostic workflow.

Through this suite of Integration and Interconnectivity tools, iNtuition has advanced the field of enterprise-wide advanced visualization in ways never possible before – from zero-hardware Software-as-a-Service offerings, to full in-house deployments leveraging browser-based client technology capable of full integration with PACS, RIS, EMR and other medical informatics systems.

iNtuition on Track:

SIIM 2011 features a variety of Imaging Informatics learning tracks, many of which are directly addressed by iNtuition technology:

1: Interoperability and Integration

iNtuition features server-side DICOM integration, client-side integration via command line, URL or browser-based launch. Quantitative Imaging results from iNtuition’s structured Measurement ProtocolTM can be exported into other systems, such as has been demonstrated with voice recognition and reporting solutions from M*Modal and Nuance.

2: Image Sharing and cloud-based computing

TeraRecon is the first and only provider of true thin-client advanced visualization in the Cloud, via the highly popular iNtuition CLOUD service. Free evaluation accounts are available at http://www.terarecon.com/cloud. The company’s iNtuition Uploader allows secure, compressed upload of DICOM data. The AquariusWEBTM viewer can then be used to view the uploaded images from any browser. The full iNtuition Client can also be run via a web browser to manipulate data uploaded to the Cloud, if required.

3. Utilizing Advanced Visualization most effectively – Augmenting Diagnosis

iNtuition is the acknowledged, award-winning, industry-leading solution for integrated advanced visualization supporting physician decisions with the highest level of automation and broadest range of clinical applications available from a true server-based thin-client solution.

4. Improving communication between radiologists, technologists and physicians

iNtuition’s Workflow TemplatesTM and Workflow ScenesTM are a key innovation that can achieve optimal workflow and communication. AquariusAPSTM automation will pre-process studies to provide technologists with an advanced starting point within a predefined Workflow Template describing a particular clinical protocol. Technologist workups are delivered as a “works-in-progress” Workflow Scenes to interpreting physicians who finalize them and deliver the completed result to referring physicians as an interactive experience via a browser, using AquariusWEB, or via iNtuitionMOBILE.

5. Imaging across departments – advanced visualization for physicians

iNtuition has long been embraced by a variety of imaging professionals, from interpreting physicians seeking advanced visualization decision support, to surgeons seeking advanced visualization for surgical planning and follow up, to research departments who successfully leverage iNtuition for image routing and management, anonymization and standardized quantitative interpretation, in the context of distributed multi-site clinical trials.
