ContextVision Delivers Standalone CT Image Enhancement for Low Dose Imaging

Cutting-edge CT image enhancement solution enables minimized radiation exposure without significant hardware or software investment.

BOSTON, Mass. and STOCKHOLM, Sweden – November 22, 2010 – ContextVision, the software imaging partner for the most recognized medical imaging manufacturers worldwide, today announced GOPView® CT, the company’s CT image enhancement software, on a standard CPU platform. This standalone cost-effective CPU-based solution enables OEMs to leverage advanced imaging technology for low dose CT imaging.

GOPView CT has had unprecedented success in reducing noise while enhancing fine structures and edges at both standard and low dose protocols. Clinical studies and current installations demonstrate that exceptional image quality can be achieved in images generated with a 30-70% lower dose. ContextVision strives to advance the industry’s effort to reduce the radiation exposure of both patient and clinicians.

“Our OEM customers can immediately deliver the most advanced CT enhancement capabilities to their end customers,” said Anita Tollstadius, CEO of ContextVision. “This standalone system brings significant benefits to existing CT imaging: facilities can quickly upgrade existing legacy systems without significant capital expenditure, and ensure patient radiation is administered as low as reasonably achievable.”

Visit the ContextVision booth at RSNA, Hall B #7544, McCormick Place, Chicago, November 28-December 3 to see firsthand the image enhancements made possible by ContextVision’s innovative image enhancement technology for CT. Like all ContextVision products, GOPView CT uses a proprietary and adaptive algorithm, GOP, which enhances CT output images, facilitating lower dose imaging with no loss in image quality.
