Compressus Inc. To Add 3D Capabilities To MEDxConnect(TM) Diagnostic Workstation

6/20/2006 10:52:51 AM

WASHINGTON, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressus, Inc., makers of integrated digital medical imaging and data management solutions, today announced that it will add 3D medical imaging analysis capabilities to its MEDxConnect(TM) System and diagnosticStation(TM) Workstations. Based on a partnership with Biotronics3D, the 3D capabilities on MEDxConnect system will be powered by Biotronics' 3DNet(TM) Examiner medical analysis technology.

The MEDxConnect 3D-Station provides a broad assortment of features for medical imaging volume visualization, including an extensive set of tools for 3D volume 'de-composition' and tissue segmentation. Pending FDA clearance, the 3DNet Examiner tools include semiautomatic segmentation techniques and 3D component calculation, measurement, quantitative report and visualization. The rendering component for 3D visualization is purely software-based and can be used with any graphics card on any Windows-based desktop computer or notebook and the 'one click' rendering mode helps doctors perform faster and more accurate diagnosis of cross sectional examinations. The 3D-Station will also allow doctors to display and compare two datasets on the same screen (or on different screens). The datasets can be the same volume displayed at different settings, or two CT volumes or a CT and an MRI or two MRI volumes.

The MEDxConnect System acts as a communications hub, enabling disparate PACS, HIS, RIS and other data information systems to connect and communicate across the enterprise. The system enables seamless integration and provides users the freedom to select best of breed tools, regardless of vendor. The integrated Digital Medical Imaging and data management solution from Compressus is designed to support a facility's current and expanded workload and provide an infrastructure for sustained growth.

The cornerstone of the system is the ConnectServer(TM) with robust, open-architected software that creates a virtual archive and database, enabling high speed enterprise wide data transfer from any acquisition device to any workstation. These DICOM diagnostic images can include angiography, cardiac ultrasound, intravascular ultrasound, as well as radiological images, and can all be viewed on the MEDxConnect diagnosticStation(TM) Workstation or MEDxConnect webStation, remote review solution.

State-of-the-art technologies work together to build the functionality required for remote connectivity and enables users to access diagnostic images in the existing data stores at each facility, increasing the level of medical care while reducing the associated costs. This solution emphasizes the electronic collection and distribution of digital imaging data including: digital storage and transmission of imaging data, softcopy workstations for efficient interpretation by radiologists, automated voice interpretation for generation of reports and electronic and secure distribution via the web of images and reports to referring physicians. All components of this solution meet HIPAA privacy requirements.

"Compressus is proud to add 3D analysis capabilities to the spectrum of image and data management solutions we provide," said Janine Broda, vice president and general manager for Compressus Medical Solutions Division. "Working with Biotronics3D, we're able to offer these tools on the MEDxConnect system and maintain vendor independence and continue to deliver connectivity and information solutions that can significantly increase practice performance."
