Gore launches 3D scanner
This article was originally published in Clinica
WL Gore & Associates has launched its 3D imaging system, a technology designed to help plan patients' treatment – for vascular abnormalities, for example. It incorporates TeraRecon iNtuition cloud technology, which accesses data stored on the internet. Physicians can "drag and drop" image files to a secure server where they are reviewed by a Gore clinical expert. This decreases turn-around times and reduces the risk of delays while planning cases, Gore believes. The Flagstaff, Arizona-based company is exhibiting the device at the VEITHsymposium, a meeting on vascular and endovascular issues held in New York City on 17-21 November. Another 3D scanner that has been in the news recently is Imaging3's Dominion, which was rejected by the US FDA earlier this month (www.clinica.co.uk, 3 November 2010).
