Three-D software targets workflow

November 27, 2005

New productivity tools have been added to 3D diagnostic colon, lung, and vascular software products from Viatronix. Upgrades to the V3D-system, shown at the RSNA meeting on Sunday, improve PACS functionality and unify user interfaces across the company’s product line to create a more user-friendly workflow.

New productivity tools have been added to 3D diagnostic colon, lung, and vascular software products from Viatronix. Upgrades to the V3D-system, shown at the RSNA meeting on Sunday, improve PACS functionality and unify user interfaces across the company's product line to create a more user-friendly workflow.

The company's V3D-Colon is a diagnostic virtual colonoscopy software package that reconstructs 2D images into detailed 3D fly-throughs and incorporates a concurrent read approach to computer-aided detection (CAD). Workflow enhancements introduced at the RSNA meeting increase fly-through speed and improve visualization by taking advantage of the latest dual-core processors. CAD tools for CT lung analysis, integrated into the Viatronix V3D visualization platform, allow real-time volume rendering of 3D CT lung images.

A carotid artery segmentation feature, which has been added to V3D-Vascular software, automatically finds the main carotid arteries and prepares 3D volume-rendered, maximum-intensity projections, and x-ray cine images with the single click of a mouse.
