Barco, a visualization technology company out of Kortrijk, Belgium, has released its latest 3D visualization software package, dubbed Voxar 3D, and integrated it with AGFA’s popular IMPAX PACS system.
From the press release:
Voxar 3D has been specifically designed to optimize the ease-of-use and productivity of the daily imaging workflow. It makes advanced visualization accessible on any IMPAX workstation over a standard 100 Mbps hospital network. Voxar 3D also delivers fast loading. With the client-server ‘Enterprise’ version, loading an entire 1000-slice series in full diagnostic quality takes around 10 seconds, while a 2000-slice series takes about 13 seconds. As a tool for daily use, the suite operates effectively with any CT, MR or PET data, even data of sub-optimal quality.
With the introduction of version 6.3, Barco has also put more emphasis on cost-efficiency. Therefore, the new product only incorporates the features and functionalities that are clinically relevant, with a special focus on reimbursable procedures. It makes use of powerful, off-the-shelf server technology and graphics cards, allowing users to benefit from the latest IT advances at the lowest cost. Along with competitive pricing and flexible licensing, Voxar 3D therefore offers a smart way to introduce advanced visualization throughout an enterprise, not just in a reading room.
Voxar 3D 6.3 can be complemented with a full set of clinical applications for specific medical disciplines.
