(Booth 1545) Swedish software developer ContextVision of Stockholm will introduce GOPView iRVPlus, a new version of the company's GOPView software designed for interventional radiology suites.

2008 11 05 13 04 47 543 Contextvision2 Adv 2008GOPView iRVPlus is designed to sharpen diagnostically significant structures, such as vessel walls, catheter tips, and stent edges, while simultaneously suppressing noise. The company believes that overall dose levels can be decreased, which minimizes exposure of both patients and medical staff. Facilities will also experience less wear and tear on x-ray tubes and increased patient throughput, according to ContextVision.

GOPView iRVPlus uses the company's GOP algorithm to distinguish between anatomical structures and noise and artifacts. The filtering and enhancement process is applied to each pixel and all individual frames, which allows different interventional procedures to achieve customized enhancement without any temporal blurring, the company said.

ContextVision's software can be embedded into an OEM's imaging system and has U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for multimodality use, including MRI, x-ray, and ultrasound modalities. When used with an optimized graphics processing unit (GPU) board, it is capable of 1k x 1k x 2 bytes real-time performance and can process images up to 1024 x 1024 pixels in real-time.
