Emageon integrates real-time 3D medical imaging
Emageon Inc. highlighted at SCAR enhancements to its advanced visualization software so that radiologists and treating physicians can better use volume rendering and three dimensional navigation in one open-standards package.
The new enhancement provides high-quality, real-time 3D medical images using off-the-shelf, OpenGL graphics cards. According to Emageon, the improvement means physicians can utilize both 2D and 3D tools without having to use third-party software and proprietary hardware to analyze medical images. The new cards are powerful enough to support volume rendering and ray tracing.
