Through the application of advanced algorithmic processes, the technology reduces noise without compromising image integrity, allowing the physician to increase diagnostic confidence. It also handles extremely large sets of data on an enterprise basis, rendering images and analysis automatically for greater patient throughput without the need for proprietary or specialized GPU rendering hardware.
Vienna, Austria (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
Ziosoft, Inc., a leader in advanced visualization and functional analytics for the medical care market, will introduce its PhyZiodynamic™ solutions for the Company's Ziostation™ system at the annual European Congress of Radiology (ECR) being held in Vienna, March 5 - 8, 2010. PhyZiodynamic technology allows clinicians to automatically apply supercomputing algorithms for the analysis of internal organs, vessels, tumors and other regions of interest in multiple dimensions, from 2D to 5D.
"The high temporal resolution of the post-processed 4D images of the heart allows not only for the functional assessment of ventricular function, but also for atrial function," said Matthias Gutberlet, MD, professor of cardiac radiology, Leipzig Cardiac Center in Germany. "In the near future, this could have an important impact on the evaluation of patients after atrial ablation procedures. For example, the actual course of treatment of atrial fibrillation could be affected based on the information provided to us by this technology."
PhyZiodynamics solutions are based on supercomputing technology originally developed for dynamic, instantaneous weather pattern analysis. Over the years, supercomputing has evolved from a large room of host computer hardware to a centralized, single CPU-based processing server allowing multiple concurrent users throughout the enterprise system. This has resulted in several significant advantages including superb image quality, optimized user efficiency and maximum cost effectiveness for an extensive range of clinical applications.
The technology offers scalable software solutions, eliminating the need for costly, multiple proprietary or specialized GPU rendering boards. It integrates seamlessly with standard, off-the-shelf hardware and expands the life of expensive modalities such as CT and MR.
"PhyZiodynamic technology provides measurable, reproducible, dynamic outcomes using existing digital modalities already located within the facility thereby expanding their utility and life," said Rob Royea, vice president of sales and marketing for Ziosoft. "Through the application of advanced algorithmic processes, the technology reduces noise without compromising image integrity, allowing the physician to increase diagnostic confidence. It also handles extremely large sets of data on an enterprise basis, rendering images and analysis automatically for greater patient throughput without the need for proprietary or specialized GPU rendering hardware."
According to Royea, the key to Ziosoft technology is uncompressed, lossless images which ensure the integrity of all the data at all times. Most importantly, because it is software-based, images are accessible from the office, home or enterprise without the need for proprietary hardware. PhyZiodynamic technology is compatible with any DICOM imaging modality including CT, MR, PET, SPECT and Angio. This allows advanced diagnostic applications for multiple medical specialties such as radiology, neurology, orthopedics, cardiology and oncology. Ziosoft has received regulatory clearance for several applications including CT coronary analysis and calcium scoring, as well as both MR and CT cardiac function analysis.
