Vital Images features new upgrades to Vitrea
Vital Images Inc. showcased at RSNA 2006 the Vital Community, a suite of advanced visualization products which include the company’s flag ship Vitrea software, web-based VitalConnect, VitreaAccess system and education through Vital U.
Vitrea software creates 2D, 3D and 4D images of human anatomy from CT and MR image data. Physicians can navigate within these volumetric images to better understand disease conditions. Vitrea addresses specialists’ requirements through various clinical applications for cardiac, colon, neurological and general vascular analysis.
VitalConnect software is a web-enabled medical tool that allows physicians to use PCs or notebook computers to access interactive 2D, 3D and 4D images. ViTALConnect software enables users to review studies and perform advanced analysis from anywhere, at anytime including collaboration capabilities that enable multiple physicians in different locations to confer while interacting with the same data in real-time, Vital said.
Physicians using Vitrea 3.9 can manipulate studies creating key images, then push them to the VitalConnect 4.0 system where enterprise users both inside and outside of the facility can restore the Vitrea workflow and continue further analysis and manipulation utilizing a web interface. VitreaAccess-Remote extends this capability by allowing radiologists to access their advanced visualization desktop from a remote location utilizing their virtual private network, Vital said.
Vital Images’ Vital U provides educational resources to its customers. Courses at Vital U are designed to provide hands-on training in such areas as vascular, thoracic and cardiac applications. Vital U courses are offered year-round at Vital Images’ Minneapolis headquarters, online, at regional road shows and, by request, at facility sites, the company said.
