aycan invited to participate in face-off at European Congress of Radiology

aycan”s imaging workstation, OsiriX PRO delivered excellent results for Post Processing

Rochester, New York, March 12, 2013. aycan, a recognized worldwide leader in medical imaging, was invited again this year to participate in the European Society of Radiology”s Post Processing Workstation Face-Off session during their annual conference held this year in March in Vienna, Austria. Along with aycan, the other companies that participated were GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, TeraRecon, and Vital Images.

Moderated by Chairman Professor Anno Graser of the University of Munich, this year”s Face-Off involved two complex viewing tasks. The two tasks involved CTA of the coronary arteries and functional MRI and metastasized malignant melanoma including detection of lung nodules with CAD and segmentation of two lesions over time assessing volumetric and RECIST response. Using its OsiriX PRO (a cost effective, FDA and CE certified, 64-bit fast highly functional workstation for conventional, multi-slice and other image reading), aycan completed all the tasks successfully and in a timely manner, and in some instances outperforming the other workstations. All vendors, including aycan, completed the first task within the six minute time frame. Only aycan, Vital Images, and Terarecon were able to complete the second task within the four minute time frame. Of particular note for aycan, aycan did not use pre-processed data of both tasks before the start of the face-off.

“aycan is proud to have been selected again this year to join the industry”s leaders to participate in the face-off and to help the CT community to bring advanced radiological tools to market,” said Stephan Popp, CEO, aycan Digital System. “Our consistent mid-range results verify the performance of our solution and its position among the top solutions on the market.” Popp went on to acknowledge the CMIV Lab at Linköping University for supporting them with algorithms for the vascular part and Chimaera GmbH, Erlangen for the registration, segmentation and volumetric analysis.

Over 20,000 participants were expected at this year”s International Conference, which took place March 7th through 11th in Vienna, Austria. The program called for clinically oriented expert lectures, refresher courses and face-off sessions. More on the conference may be found at www.myecr.org.
