Medweb's Advanced 3D Web PACS widens access to many 3D imaging functions and features previously available only on dedicated 3D workstations. With Medweb's new product, introduced today at the RSNA meeting, users working on a standard PC can employ 3D templating and autosegmenting of image data from spiral CT scanners.

The introduction of the Advanced 3D Web PACS extends 3D templating and sculpting tools to surgeons, oncologists, and other physicians.

Conventional 2D image display workstations are obsolete for evaluating studies originating from 16- and 32-slice scanners, according to industry experts. Advanced 3D Web PACS enables distribution of these studies in a manageable 3D volume that can be displayed and navigated easily.

The Medweb solution enables isolation, sculpting, zoom-in and 360° rotation of images. It also provides MIP, MPR, and various measurement and 3D cursor functions alongside conventional 2D image windows. Autosegmentation tools isolate bone, blood vessels, and other tissues via simple template buttons or customizable settings.

At a fraction of the price of dedicated workstations, the new product can be integrated into a conventional PACS infrastructure. It can also serve as a stand-alone PACS or function as a modality PACS for CT technology. It is compatible with all Medweb products.
