Rcadia Medical Imaging out of Haifa, Israel won European approval for the COR Analyzer software for identifying coronary artery stenosis from coronary CT angiography (cCTA) data. The app runs on standard PCs and will automatically process CT angiogram studies sent to it over the hospital network. The application then replies whether it identified a stenotic legion, pointing out to radiologists or cardiologists the area of concern.
Here’s the application workflow and features of the COR Analyzer:
Isolate the heart region within a study Find major anatomical structures Locate the coronary artery tree and track the arteries Label coronary artery segments Segment the blood vessel internals and draw an accurate center line Detect severe stenotic lesions
Findings can be easily verified and validated using simple visualization tools including standard 2-D projections, schematic 3-D and curved MPR views. The system automatically generates a report which includes a summary of findings and curved MPR snapshots. It can be easily edited by the physician to produce the final report.
The automatically generated curved MPR images with marked detected lesions can be exported to any PACS/Workstation either manually or automatically upon completion of processing. These images will appear as secondary capture series for the corresponding study.
Detects of significant coronary lesions Displays 3D coronary tree & curved MPRs Generates patient findings’ reports Exports to PACS and workstation Runs on any 64-slice or higher CTA scanner
