Advanced Clinical Functionality and Innovative Clinical Tools Deliver
LAS VEGAS, May 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vital Images, Inc. (Nasdaq: VTAL), a leading provider of enterprise-wide advanced visualization and analysis solutions featured ViTAL's solution at the 10th Annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT in Las Vegas. The solution, which was demonstrated at the 6th Annual Workstation Face-Off, highlighted the breadth and depth of clinical functionality through the interpretation of four highly complex and challenging CT studies: a CT Colonography using computer-aided detection and virtual endoscopic evaluation, a CT angiographic carotid stroke case with the evaluation of brain perfusion, a ten-phase combined coronary CT angiography and a thoracic aneurysm case, that was not provided in advance as a way to simulate an actual emergency case, read remotely from Fargo, ND, and a thoracic PET-CT case to evaluate pulmonary nodules.
The studies were timed and read by vendor-selected physicians live before the symposium audience of over 1,000 attendees. The intense and time-limited environment is intended to mimic a busy clinical practice.
"The ViTAL solution automatically segmented the three major coronary arteries in all ten cardiac phases -- unlike any other vendor -- in a very complex clinical case," said Tony DeFrance, MD, medical director of the CVCTA Education Center in San Francisco. "This advanced clinical functionality and workflow efficiency is crucial for diagnosis in a busy clinical practice."
"Advanced clinical solutions are increasingly important in acute care,"
said Lawrence Neil Tanenbaum, MD, FACR, director of CT and MR Imaging,
Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. "I was able to complete
diagnostic analysis in a carotid stroke case remotely from Fargo, ND,
within four minutes. 'Time is brain' in the evaluation of stroke and this
