Mercury Computer Systems Introduces Visage 3D to the Core Platform

via PRNewswire
* Visage RT Image Reconstruction The world's first GPU-based reconstruction solution reduces reconstruction times by 40x to 60x, helping to ensure that the process does not become the throughput bottleneck in the diagnostic workflow. * Visage VR Volume Rendering Mercury's award-winning volume-rendering software components, combined with a flexible architecture, are easily embedded within OEM applications to support extremely large data-set volume rendering and advanced visualization. * Visage WS Workstation Turnkey workstation visualization software, combined with clinical applications with accelerated 3D rendering, optimize the diagnostic workflow. * Visage CS Thin Client/Server The scalable, multi-user thin client/server solution brings full 3D visualization to existing equipment throughout the enterprise. * Visage PACS With 1,000 installations worldwide, this web-based, high-performance, highly available PACS solution provides integrated image access, scalability from 1 to 500 users, and includes fully integrated PACS 2D and 3D workstation capability.

Mercury will hold demonstrations of its Visage 3D to the Core imaging andvisualization software and systems solutions, including the Visage WSWorkstation, Visage CS Thin Client/Server, Visage VR Volume Rendering, VisageRT Image Reconstruction, and Visage PACs. Mercury will also demonstrate CTimage reconstruction on the Cell Broadband Engine(TM) processor. The mostpowerful multicomputer on a chip, the Cell BE processor enables orders-of-magnitude faster processing for high-performance applications in medicalimaging.

Visit Mercury in the South Building, Hall A, Section 3, Booth #1912 atRSNA November 27 through December 1 . Or go online to formore information on Mercury's 3D to the Core imaging solutions and to view theCT image reconstruction demo using the Cell BE processor.
