Siemens and HipGraphics enter into exclusive 3D software agreement
Siemens Medical Solutions USA Inc. and HipGraphics Inc. have inked an exclusive agreement to develop a state-of-the-art, interactive 3D medical imaging application called syngo InSpace.

The two companies have been collaborating on the development of 3D medical imaging applications since 1992 and will continue to advance the capabilities of this software.

InSpace is designed as an advanced 3D medical imaging application powered by Siemens' syngo, software designed for an intuitive and seamless workflow across virtually all imaging modalities. syngo InSpace, which has been installed on more than 1,000 Siemens systems since its introduction in 2002, enables the real-time 3D processing of very large volume data sets, such as produced by Siemens' Somatom Sensation multislice CT scanner. The latest version of this software - syngo InSpace4D - also enables 3D images to be displayed in motion.

HipGraphics is based in Baltimore, Md.
