The software assists radiologists and surgeons with detailed interpretation of medical images for improved diagnoses and more precise surgical planning, the firm said. Physicians and surgeons can interact with medical images the way they would with objects in the real world. The software uses DICOM image data to create life-size holographic versions of organs, blood vessels, and other structures so that physicians can rotate, resize, dissect, and make incisions to virtual patient-specific anatomy.
Version 1.6.2 expands the supported modalities of CT and MRI to include ultrasound with Doppler and C-arm fluoroscopy images. The integration of hemodynamics data into 3D representations offers structural and functional data that may better assess implantable device sizing, fibroid and uterine vascularity, and fetal heart assessment, for instance.
Also, by supporting C-arm views, True 3D software can show a fluoroscopy image in 3D and use other imaging datasets to create 3D digital reconstruction radiographs.
The latest version of the software also features a new reporting structure designed to improve the translation of images and expand the surgical planning services radiologists provide surgeons, EchoPixel said. Key Bookmark Scenes (KBS) files provide a graphical, anatomical 3D model that enables the visualization of a patient's anatomy and pathology.
