ContextVision Leads Medical Image Enhancement Market

ContextVision unveiled expanded product portfolio with unparalleled focus on diagnostic image enhancement at recent European Congress of Radiology                                                                                                                                                                        

BOSTON, Mass. And STOCKHOLM, Sweden –March 18, 2013 – For 30 years, ContextVision has driven image enhancement technology forward, delivering unequaled diagnostic image quality to clinicians. At the recent European Congress of Radiology (ECR), ContextVision demonstrated its cutting-edge software within ultrasound, X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography and more.

ContextVision’s recent investment in cutting-edge software for product development has led to multiple product upgrades, including:

  • A broader use of image enhancement in ultrasound – GOPiCE® US and US PLUSView™ have been adapted to further hardware solutions providing customers with greater flexibility. The industry’s first ultrasound real-time three-dimensional filtering product enhances 3D ultrasound volumes by filtering images to remove speckle, noise and other artifacts, and simultaneously sharpening diagnostically significant structures. Volumetric acquisitions empowered by multi-dimensional image enhancement leads to faster and more accurate diagnosis.
  • Further perfection of real-time imaging during interventional radiography – GOPView® iRVUltra’s new unique temporal filter reduces disturbing noise without temporal blurring leading to improved vessel and structure conspicuity. This significantly improves image quality while maintaining patient dose, or, alternatively, preserves image quality using a lower patient dose. Initial studies have shown that image quality can be maintained while reducing dose levels by up to 50 percent.
  • New features for MRI – Upgrades to GOPView® MRI2Plus offer compensation for image inhomogeneity and an external interface which allows adaption to different end user preferences.
  • Three new add-on modules for GOPView XR2Plus include Intelligent Exposure Index (EI), which automatically monitors patient exposure, Defect Correct Library (DCL), which corrects for XR panel defects and Doctors Interface (DI) for end user image control.

“We’re proud to provide such a robust product portfolio across all modalities and several new upgrades,” said Anita Tollstadius, ContextVision CEO. “In addition to our suite of image enhancement products, we were pleased with the positive response to our new add-on modules for X-ray that automatically monitor patient exposure, correct XR panel defects, and provide end-user image control”
