Terarecon, Inc. Releases Aquarius iNtuition(TM) 4.4 at ECR 2009

VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - March 09, 2009) - TeraRecon, Inc. (, a global provider of advanced visualization solutions, announced the release of Aquarius iNtuition ("AQi") Version 4.4 at the 21st European Congress of Radiology, held in Vienna, Austria.

TeraRecon president Robert Taylor Ph.D said, "With AQi 4.4, TeraRecon has delivered the world's first fully-featured client server advanced visualization solution. iNtuition is the only true client-server advanced visualization technology available on the market today, that can address the suite of applications generally expected to be available by medical imaging providers. iNtuition does not use 'remote control via the web' technology to achieve a facsimile of 'thin-client' operation, but rather, AQi has been designed from the ground up as a truly native client-server technology platform. The difference in performance, functionality, cost and value-for money, is substantial and meaningful, and already well understood by our many iNtution customers to date. It has been a long road of intense commitment to innovation to achieve a proper implementation of client-server technology for a full suite advanced visualization tools, but the results have exceeded even our own expectations. We believe this truly is an important milestone in the impact of advanced visualization on the standard of care."

Among the new features available with AQi 4.4 are dedicated tools for Endovascular Aortic Repair Planning (EVAR), user-customizable measurement protocols with export to XML, CSV or text format for RIS interfacing, and a comprehensive package for CT Colon review, supporting both Primary 2D and Primary 3D interpretation styles. Also included are a Time-Dependence Analysis (TDA) package for perfusion studies, and an enhanced client-server version of the company's "SAT" oncology package, supporting segmentation, analysis and tracking of masses and lesions from CT or MR data in any anatomical location, including lung (nodule analysis), brain and liver. The SAT tool is now generally available for use at any time during image review, and it features automated selection of morphology or pathology along with calculation of dimensions and volumes and progression/regression monitoring.

AQi 4.4 also features improvements to the previously-available cardiac and vascular analysis tools, and to the AquariusWEB viewer, which now supports more interaction with vascular analysis views, and the ability to provide a referring physician or patient with a simple link for Web access to a dataset that requires only a password for access to the study. Such web access to images has the potential to remove the need to burn images on CD, while providing better opportunities for logging and auditing of image access.

In 2009, TeraRecon is expanding upon its strong commitment to support its many PACS and RIS partners around the world by augmenting their workflow with integrated access to the iNtuition client from within their review station environments. Integrated access to iNtuition functionality is available for demonstration at the booths of many RIS and PACS companies at ECR 2009.

Dr. Taylor observed that, "iNtuition is designed with EMR/HIS/RIS/PACS interoperability and workflow in mind. Our solution integrates with many other clinical information and image management systems to deliver a powerful and clinically-rich visualization experience from the point of acquisition, through pre-processing and interpretation, and even to referring physicians and clinicians, via the innovative AquariusWEB browser-based mobile viewing technology."

AQi 4.4 has been released to customer sites for clinical use through TeraRecon's Early Access program.
