Workstations, Multiple Modality, Three-Dimensional Image

Definition : Workstations designed to analyze, process, and store high-resolution volumetric digital images and data from several different diagnostic imaging systems, providing three-dimensional (3-D) images and segmentation. The images are usually obtained from computed radiography (CR), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound (US) scanners using appropriate software. 3-D image workstations typically consist of a high-speed digital computer, high-definition printers, input and output devices, and data/image processors; they usually follow the instructions of specialized software for rapid and straightforward manipulation of images. The main feature of the software is, in addition to the display of 3-D images, its capability for segmentation and measurement of tumors, lesions, and aneurysms using real-time multiplanar reformatting of the images; these workstations can also provide bone-free images facilitating the visualization of vessels and other soft tissue (e.g., angiograms). Workstations with dedicated software intended for only one application or a few applications (CR, CT, MRI, US, endoscopy) are also available.
