This Princeton, NJ, advanced visualization software developer will demonstrate new enhancements to its software for analyzing chest and liver images.
The company debuted version 1.0 of its IQQA-Chest software for viewing digital radiography chest images at the 2004 RSNA meeting. The software is designed to help physicians identify, quantify, diagnose, and report pulmonary nodules.
At this year’s show, EDDA will highlight version 1.1 of the software, with advanced DICOM connectivity (including DICOM Storage, Query/Retrieval, Structured Report, Send, and other protocols) and a refined work list design that further improves workflow efficiency, according to the company.
EDDA will also report on a clinical study, conducted in five hospitals in China, in which the software was used for CT-confirmed nodules. The study suggests that the software improved detection of lung nodules in screening populations, using both DR and CR technology, according to the company. The results have been accepted for presentation at this month’s RSNA meeting.
EDDA will introduce IQQA-Liver, new work-in-progress software to enhance workflow in dynamic liver imaging. The application is intended to assist the review of serial multiphase CT acquisitions of the liver using dynamic imaging techniques. It offers advanced visualization and quantitative evaluation tools powered by image registration and segmentation techniques, the vendor said. It can be used to diagnose and stage primary liver disease and liver metastases, and for preoperative assessment.
IQQA-Liver is undergoing clinical studies in China and is pending regulatory review by U.S. and Chinese regulatory agencies.
