Autosegmentation algorithm tackles array of brain tumors
May 22, 2015 -- A new algorithm for automatically segmenting image data delivers fast and reproducible volumes of a wide variety of tumors, satisfying a significant unmet need in neuro-oncology, according to a new study in Academic Radiology. A panel of readers gave the algorithm high marks for how well it approximated manual data segmentation methods.
Israeli start-up eyes big-data tools for imaging analysis
May 14, 2015 -- For Israeli image analysis software developer Zebra Medical Vision, size definitely matters. The start-up believes its database of 10 million curated imaging studies and extensive collaborations with researchers around the world will take image analysis algorithms to a whole new level.
New CT-based liver segmentation tool proves fast and accurate
May 6, 2015 -- Liver segmentation, used to obtain liver volumes when planning for major interventions, can be automated without loss of accuracy compared to manual measurements, cutting procedure time by more than half, according to a new study in Academic Radiology.
LevelCheck algorithm targets wrong-site spinal surgery
April 23, 2015 -- A new algorithm called LevelCheck -- designed to prevent wrong-site spinal surgery -- boasted near-perfect accuracy in a trial by Johns Hopkins University researchers. By matching preoperative CT scans to intraoperative radiographs, LevelCheck confirms for surgeons that they are targeting the correct vertebral level.
Coregistered 3D US plus angio boosts aneurysm surgery
April 6, 2015 -- Combining rotational digital subtraction angiography with 3D ultrasound creates a powerful pair for guiding aneurysm surgery when images are dynamically coregistered during procedures, according to a new study by German researchers and published in PLOS One.
Imaging vendors have options for image processing hardware
March 27, 2015 -- When developing new imaging systems, OEMs can choose from many types of computer hardware platforms. Platform selection in turn affects the type of image processing to be used, which then influences the radiologist's work when viewing medical images. Software architects from advanced visualization developer ContextVision offer some guidance.
FDA in hand, EchoPixel preps for launch of True 3D platform
March 24, 2015 -- Advanced visualization developer EchoPixel is moving its True 3D Viewer technology to market after receiving clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the platform, which creates holographic displays from CT and MRI data.
Apple announces ResearchKit app software for medical researchers
March 10, 2015 -- Apple introduced ResearchKit, an open-source software framework designed to benefit medical researchers, at its March 2015 Special Event on Monday. Using ResearchKit, researchers will be able to more easily design apps that allow patients to remotely consent to join clinical trials and provide data.
Automated perfusion mapping falls short in stroke
March 8, 2015 -- VIENNA - Automatically generated color CT perfusion maps have a role in the emergency care of ischemic stroke patients, but they are less accurate than manually generated maps, according to research presented at ECR 2015.
CTPA-based prediction model nails pulmonary hypertension
March 7, 2015 -- VIENNA - When do suspected pulmonary embolism patients actually have pulmonary hypertension (PH)? Although the treatment approach for the conditions is quite different, their presentation can be similar. But a new CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) tool can accurately predict PH in patients without pulmonary embolism, according to researchers from Israel.
