Mercury reveals VisageRT embedded software
Mercury Computer Systems has introduced VisageRT software for visualization and reconstruction of medical image data created by diagnostic and interventional imaging devices such as CT, MR, digital x-ray, SPECT, PET, and ultrasound.

According to Mercury, the software is designed for integration into existing system frameworks of life sciences OEM customers. VisageRT components are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms.

VisageRT volume-rendering components include advanced visualization techniques such as multi-planar reformatting and thick slab rendering, maximum intensity projection, shaded volume rendering, shaded surface display, flexible clipping, and perspective viewing, Mercury said. The VisageRT image reconstruction components support a multitude of algorithms such as Fourier techniques, Pi methods, algebraic reconstruction technique (ART), and expectation maximization (EM).

Mercury said it will hold demonstrations on its new life sciences tools in booth #2775 at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 28 - Dec. 2 in Chicago.
