GE Healthcare introduced at RSNA 2006 Advantage Workstation (AW) VolumeShare 2, an advanced image visualization application that provides physicians with diagnostic tools for CT, PET, MR, x-ray, vascular, mammography, and other modalities. GE’s AW provides 2D, 3D and 4D post processing capabilities to help handle the increasing diagnostic and workflow needs of today’s imaging departments.
The VolumeShare 2 software is designed to leverage 64–bit technology for a minimum two-fold increase in capacity in managing images. AW VolumeShare 2 also includes several user-friendly improvements such as the ability to personalize the review steps and workflow. Optional RIS integrations also allow the user to synchronize patient context with a RIS system, GE said.
One of the featured VolumeShare 2 applications at RSNA 2006 was Vessel IQ Xpress that utilizes the company’s Autobone Xpress technology. The applications performs automatic segmentation of bony structures in the head, neck, abdomen and lower extremities to help to accurately and easily identify vessels as well as exclusive calcification removal.
The AW VolumeShare 2 also features other new applications such as CardIQTM Fusion, CardIQTM Physio, and CT Perfusion 4.0.
