Medical Insight announces a new release of their Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) system called EasyViz. The new release contains a new optimized industrial-strength volume rendering engine based on GPU ray marching. The engine uses an octree structure for dynamic empty-space leaping, occlusion culling, and early Z-culling. As a result, the overall 3D pipeline delivers cutting-edge performance with superior image quality. The engine supports out-of-core rendering of large volumetric datasets (Up to 1024³ voxels) at interactive frame-rates. Furthermore, the new engine adds support for rendering of segmented/tagged volume data well-as support for instant per voxel clipping using a new mesh voxelization algorithm. The renderer is based on OpenGL and GLSL and supports off-the-shell graphics hardware. Clinicians – or radiologists working from home – can get instant secure access to the EasyViz’s advanced visualization tools via streaming through EasyViz Enterprise.
