Radiologists are learning new ways to perform their lifesaving work, and this new digital community will keep them abreast of the newest software tools as they become available.
Chester, UK (Vocus/PRWEB) April 11, 2011
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com today launched its new Advanced Visualization Digital Community, a special section devoted to coverage of advanced visualization technologies in medical imaging. The new section is being supported by an unrestricted sponsorship from TeraRecon, a developer of advanced image processing, decision support, and 3D visualization techniques.
Radiologists around the world are turning to advanced visualization software to help them handle the massive volumes of data being generated by today's modern imaging technologies, such as multislice CT scanners. This is leading to a new paradigm in how imaging specialists interpret and interact with imaging data, and how they report their findings to referring physicians.
The new Advanced Visualization Digital Community is designed to help AuntMinnieEurope members understand these trends with late-breaking news and in-depth articles on new research and industry developments.
"From cloud-based computing to mobile devices like iPads, advanced visualization software is changing the very nature of radiology," said Philip Ward, AuntMinnieEurope.com editor in chief. "Radiologists are learning new ways to perform their lifesaving work, and this new digital community will keep them abreast of the newest software tools as they become available."
TeraRecon sees the sponsorship as part of the company's mission to advance the discipline of radiology through innovative software with practical, real-world applications.
"Europe is a collection of diverse and highly sophisticated national communities, but one that is unified in its goals for providing the best possible patient care, based on the best available technology and evidence-based medicine. In this regard, the cutting edge is the field of advanced visualization and decision support," said Robert Taylor, Ph.D., president and CEO of TeraRecon. "We are certain that with the Advanced Visualization Digital Community, AuntMinnieEurope.com will build on their broader global success, with incisive and relevant editorial and news, to shine a spotlight on how this rapidly evolving area of radiology can directly benefit European nations. We are honored and excited to be their inaugural partner for this new initiative."
