Barco, a medical imaging specialist, has received FDA 510(k) pre-market clearance for the latest version of its Voxar 3D advanced visualization suite.

Version 6.3 of the 3D software further enhances the digital imaging workflow with its integration into PACS and its ease of use, which allow radiologists to increase their efficiency and report studies faster. The suite comes with a full set of integrated clinical applications, including Voxar 3D Colonmetrix for CT colonography and Voxar 3D PET-CT Fusion for the interpretation of whole body FDG oncology studies.

The PET/CT fusion is a new clinical application that supports the effective interpretation of whole body FDG oncology studies and allows real-time interaction with PET/CT images. It enables radiologists to accurately and efficiently blend PET and CT studies to combine anatomical and functional images for rapid lesion analysis and characterization.
