TeraRecon, University of MD team up in live 3-D exhibit

Three-dimensional-software developer TeraRecon and radiologists from the University of Maryland are teaming up to produce a live evaluation of what the firm calls workflow-based 3D at this week's annual meeting of the Society for Computer Applications in Radiology.

The joint exhibit will gauge the effectiveness of how physicians learn to navigate 3D datasets after watching a three-minute video for the firm's AquariusNet enterprise-wide 3D system. The goal of the exhibit is to measure the impact of educational software on radiologists' ability to apply 3D tools such as multiplanar reconstruction, according to TeraRecon of San Mateo, CA.

In other SCAR developments, TeraRecon will be highlighting its recently introduced AquariusGate software, designed to help customers efficiently utilize limited network bandwidth when transferring imaging datasets across a network. AquariusGate receives images from existing medical imaging devices using DICOM, and then applies configurable and rules-based lossy or lossless compression before routing the datasets to a receiving station. The receiving station reconstitutes the images and relays them to the receiving device using DICOM, TeraRecon said.
