GE Healthcare’s Next Generation Post-Processing Software Receives FDA Clearance
Provides access to MR advanced visualization capabilities from any PC, laptop or PACS/RIS workstation
Advanced tools and applications help enable the creation of great images for advanced analysis
Waukesha – May 12, 2011— GE Healthcare today announced FDA clearance of READY View, a new MR advanced visualization platform to help clinicians process and analyze images anytime and anywhere. A part of the Dexus workflow, READY View is accessible through any PC, PACS or RIS workstation, allowing access to process and analyze images in any office, meeting room or even at home.
The READY View advanced visualization platform provides a combination of protocols, applications and advanced tools that enable a fast, easy and quantified analysis. In addition to standard and advanced protocols, such as 4D review and image averaging, READY View offers fast and accurate multiparametric protocols, such as Brain Oncology, knee, liver and many more. Multiparametric protocols offer a new, simple and intuitive workflow to process all functional data from a single screen without having to leave a reading station.
“MR is moving to quantitative analysis to improve lesion detection, characterization or monitoring,” said Jim Davis, general manager, global MR business GE Healthcare. ”The READY View platform is the first step in bringing clinicians a fast and easy way to process and analyze MR data anytime and anywhere. With READY View, clinicians can automatically segment an abnormality, convert into a 3-D volume and then quickly see and export the curve and associated statistics to the segmented area. ”
Combining READY View’s robust accessibility with its many productivity tools such as auto-processing, save state, 1-click motion correction, and real time thresholding and segmentation, READY View will not only help streamline image processing and analysis but help clinicians provide an effective diagnosis.
