VivoLab

Post-Processing

Get a new perspective: coronal, sagittal, oblique or cut right to 3D. VivoLab will open your eyes.

The diagnosis of high-resolution isometric datasets with the help of visualization tools like MPR, MIP or volume visualization has come from the academic field to radiology. The routine use of these tools, however, requires the rapid availability of thin-layered datasets. To resolve this, Digital Medics developed the one-of-a-kind transfer technology VivoNet. Along with efficiently saturating the hardware acceleration of modern graphic cards, post-processing becomes an integral part of your daily routine.

MPR/MIP/VR

VivoLab’s numerous post-processing capabilities are tightly integrated into its user interface. Display a volume rendering alongside sagittal, coronal and axial planes – for example to support the diagnosis of complex fractures. In the same way, you can use the Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) display to view the topology of stenoses.

In contrast to pre-rendered MIP series of modality consoles, the real-time MIP display has the advantage of total freedom of rotation. Where a user used to have to settle for a rigid pre-defined axis of rotation, now you can create other perspectives on the fly.

VivoLab’s Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) is one of its highlights. A highly praised user interface combined with high performance and speed, even with high-resolution datasets, make using this cutting-edge technology natural and intuitive. Drag and drop the layer thickness to the desired size, or reformat orthogonally or obliquely – VivoLab makes it all possible for you.

Hardware Acceleration

All post-processing functions in VivoLab use the capabilities of modern graphic accelerators, such as the Quadro series by Nvidia. Current graphic cards are like small supercomputers, which with today’s technology support higher memory bandwidth and parallelization of computations far better than common desktop PCs.

If a PACS viewer does not use these special acceleration capabilities, the graphic card – and with it a large part of the computer’s processing power – lies useless. Today that is still the rule rather than the exception. 

As a spin-off of the Department of Computer Graphics of the Technical University of Dortmund, Digital Medics uses its existing know-how to squeeze every drop of power from the basic hardware so that radiologists can benefit. Only with this enhanced performance can post-processing tools be useful in everyday work.
