Welsh hospital selects Barco’s advanced visualisation solution

Barco : 09 January, 2008  (New Product)
Glan Clwyd Hospital, part of the Conwy & Denbighshire NHS Trust in Wales, has purchased Barco’s advanced visualisation solution to integrate Voxar 3D Enterprise into its Fujifilm Synapse PACS.
The new advanced visualisation solution will provide the hospital with ultra-fast access to large volumetric studies throughout the hospital enterprise.

When dealing with volumetric studies, rapid access and distribution of the images is sometimes a problem. Voxar 3D Enterprise solves this perfectly by considerably reducing the load times of large thin slice datasets (1000+ images in less than 15 seconds).

Voxar 3D Enterprise also facilitates real-time access to full workstation functionality and clinical applications. This is achieved by using powerful off-the-shelf server-based technology and high-performance ATI graphics processing units. By seamlessly integrating into the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), Voxar 3D Enterprise provides new workflow and productivity benefits.

Glan Clwyd Hospital had used Voxar 3D Workstation for three years before deciding to upgrade to Voxar 3D Enterprise. Dr McConnell, lead interventional consultant radiologist at Glan Clwyd, explained the decision: “We were really satisfied with the Voxar 3D Workstation solution. It allowed all radiologists to consult volumetric studies on the workstation in their offices, rather than having to walk to the reading room. In fact, the initial reason we upgraded to Voxar 3D Enterprise was for the short-term archiving of thin-slice datasets. This adds convenience and extra speed to the processing of volumetric studies. However, we found the biggest benefit of Voxar 3D Enterprise is the ease-of-use. Being able to view 3D images from within the Fujifilm Synapse PACS, with the familiar user interface, is very convenient indeed. Furthermore, the solution is fast and ensures almost instant access to our studies. That’s exactly what we need.”

“Voxar 3D Enterprise is the logical way to deal with 3D images”, Roy Kinnear, PACS Account Manager at Fujifilm said. “It opens the volumetric studies with one click on a dedicated button on our Fujifilm Synapse PACS solution, and also keeps the look and feel of our interface. The PACS and the advanced visualisation application become part of the same work list. This is really intuitive and perfectly meets our users’ demands. The improved speed obtained by Voxar 3D Enterprise lets users view 1000 images in seconds. It is a great plus to our PACS solution indeed and we will actively promote the use of this product to our customer base.”

Besides Voxar 3D Enterprise Elite, which was selected by Glan Clwyd, the product family also consists of Voxar 3D Enterprise Access. This thin client solution provides access to the most commonly used advanced visualisation tools on any standard networked PC connected to the Voxar 3D Enterprise server. With Access, the 3D reconstructions are created entirely on the server and are streamed to the user in real time. This system allows the user to load 1000 images in less than ten seconds on a 1 GB network.
