California-based clinical products developer Visage Imaging and Medicsight, a computer-aided detection and image analysis software developer, have partnered to develop an advanced computed tomography colonography solution.
According to Visage, the computed tomography colonography (CTC) application will be integrated into its Thin Client/Server platform to enable efficient access of CTC and computer-aided detection by radiologists and clinicians. The solution will also enable distributing, documenting and sharing the diagnostic results.
The CTC application will become a part of the picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) infrastructure and workflow, thereby removing the need for dedicated CTC workstations.
The company claimed that its PACS and advanced visualization solutions can display and process 2D, 3D and 4D data on standard computers connected through LAN, WAN or the internet.
We look forward to supporting Visage Imaging in delivering this unique integrated solution to hospitals and imaging centers. The easy deployment and enhanced accessibility of the Visage solution results in a powerful package that brings CT colonography to its true potential, said David Sumner, chief executive at Medicsight.
Visage enables our customers to make more efficient use of their PACS, advanced visualization, and clinical applications such as CT angiography, cardiac CT, and CT colonography. The benefits of an integrated, thin client based solution start with an optimized workflow inside the radiology department, and go all the way to enabling remote reading services and an enhanced service offering to their referral base, said Marcelo Lima, president at Visage Imaging.
Medicsight’s competitor iCAD also launched a colon CAD product line, including CTC, earlier this year.
