Pliable Display Technology
for Medical Imaging
Gives You a Better View of Life
The medical system is gradually moving away from the inefficient
and costly process of moving image hard copies between
practitioners towards digital imaging for viewing and
storing medical images. The evolution of healthcare into
integrated multi-hospital networks, along with advancements
in medical imaging technology for MRI, Ultrasound and
X-Ray, is driving the need for sophisticated image viewing
and management tools to improve work flow, quality of
diagnosis and patient care. The MRI hardware market is
currently $2.2 billion and growing at a rate of 54%. Medical
imaging software market potential is in its infancy, but
believed to have potential to reach $1 Billion.
Medical imaging technologies and application developers
have effectively developed the capability to create, manage,
and edit images. However, traditional viewing methods
inadequately address the "screen real-estate problem"
commonly encountered in dealing with large images or small
screens, and do not provide real-time, dynamic, "detail
in context" capabilities. IDELIX Software's Pliable Display
Technology (PDT) represents a new framework for viewing
PDT provides the means for the user to view detail
in the context of the surrounding information, using a
wide variety of lenses that can be positioned and configured
in real time. The user sees the region of interest in
detail and can move it at will, but retains a view of
the surroundings. No information is hidden from view,
and the navigational cues provided by the surrounding
regions are not lost. The technology is applicable to
both local and online presentation of high information
density data such as medical images.
Improve productivity and work flow
The key advantage of Pliable Display Technology (PDT)
is that PDT enables "detail-in-context" viewing, thereby
preserving a view of the surrounding image and the
navigational cues associated with it. Viewers will
not have to rely on inefficient zooming, panning or
inset viewing to effectively view details or manage
Device, Operating System and Application Independent
PDT is easily integrated and adds value to the presentation
of information on many different hardware types, from
compact handheld and wireless devices through to PC's
with large monitors.
