TeraRecon Enhances PACS With iNtuition at RSNA 2008(November 30, 2008)
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/08 -- TeraRecon, Inc. (www.terarecon.com), a leading provider of advanced visualization software, announced integration of the company's Aquarius iNtuition advanced visualization solution with many leading PACS vendors at the 94th Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), held at McCormick Place, Chicago.
Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) are used for the storage, distribution and interpretation of radiological images in healthcare. PACS and teleradiology systems represent a fast-growing, multi billion dollar market globally.
At RSNA 2008, TeraRecon will be showcasing the latest release of Aquarius iNtuition, a powerful thin-client server-based solution which offers a full suite of workstation-class clinical tools, including cardiac and vascular analysis, endovascular aortic repair planning, lung and colon review, and time-density analysis. All these applications can now be seamlessly integrated into PACS via TeraRecon's client-server architecture which places minimal demands on the PACS workstation's processing resources or the institution's network infrastructure.
iNtuition now supports the TeraRecon PACS Application Programming Interface (API) which supports a contextual launch from within the worklists of various PACS vendors' products, including Agfa, Amicas, DR Systems, Emageon, Fuji, GE (including the former Dynamic Imaging), Intelerad, McKesson, Philips (formerly Stentor), Sectra and others. At RSNA 2008, integration of the Aquarius iNtuition solution will be showcased on the booths of the following PACS vendors; McKesson, Agfa, Agfa HeartLab, Emageon/HSS, DR Systems and MetaFusion.
"INtuition is the perfect complement for a modern PACS installation," stated Robert Taylor, PhD, TeraRecon president and chief operating officer. "While PACS performs admirably for storage, distribution, and the primary diagnostic interpretation of most radiological images, radiology and other departments in a healthcare enterprise today also expect integrated access to best-in-class advanced visualization applications, and this is where TeraRecon excels. Our unique system architecture enables a simple, elegant but very powerful integration with PACS systems to share data, to be aware of context, and to seamlessly integrate into the reading workflow as if TeraRecon's solutions were a native part of the PACS environment, while still taking advantage of TeraRecon's rapid development trajectory for new applications."
In addition to the advanced client applications supported by Aquarius iNtuition, results can also be distributed far and wide via iNtuition's AquariusWEB viewer. AquariusWEB overcomes many obstacles in today's secure IT environment, which restricts download or installation of software on enterprise computer systems. AquariusWEB is a fully browser-based viewer that delivers live, interactive 3D to the medical specialists who are the ultimate end users of imaging data. AquariusWEB allows interpreting physicians to deliver a secure URL link via an email or the patient record, so that referring physicians can instantly access, review and interact with the volumetric dataset. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome. AquariusWEB also features a mobile edition compatible with the iPhone.
