ContextVision Continues to Bolster its X-ray Division

X-ray tuning tool allows users to set image enhancement parameters

BOSTON, Mass. and STOCKHOLM, Sweden – March 18, 2009 – ContextVision, the software imaging partner for the most recognized medical imaging manufacturers worldwide, today announced its continued investment in its X-ray division. This month ContextVision added to its team of image enhancement experts and announced a new version of its X-ray tuning software, GOPView® XR2-T.

About the New GOPView XR2-T
The new version of GOPView® XR2-T allows for fine adjustment of the image quality in digital X-ray images. XR2-T enables users to set their specific preferences for the post-processing of X-ray images. Feedback from ContextVision’s OEM customers indicated that end users wanted to have more control over tuning. With XR2-T, the images can be tuned to suit the personal preferences of individual customers, whether that is an increased focus on the small details or a decrease in noise and artifacts. The New GOPView XR2-T features two separate modes, image and feature, which accommodates two primary user groups: imaging experts and radiologists.

“Our new tuning tool offers customers the latest image enhancement capabilities and demonstrates our commitment to bringing the best possible images to market,” said Jan Erik Hedborg, President and CEO of ContextVision. “GOPView XR2-T enables our OEM customers to maximize investments already made in X-ray systems. Customers can upgrade their hardware with XR2-T, enabling end users to set their individual tuning preferences to meet the varying demands of clinicians.”
