ESCR 2012: workstation session

Yesterday a workstation session at the ESCR 2012. We choose not to have a face off since that always comes down to comparing quantitative measurements but to have a workstation demonstration.

Three vendors: Siemens, Philips and Circle Cardiovascular Imaging participated in this session. All companies had ample time to present their workstation and show how cardiac cases can be read. Both Siemens and Philips focused on presenting CT while Circle presented MR cases.

It was interesting to see the differences and similarities between the workstations in this well attended session.

A interesting thing was to see that for left ventricular analysis the CT softwares moved to implementing model based approaches while in MR Circle showed a bloodpool approach. Providing both methods and measurement in both modalities might increase the comparability between them for the quantitative analysis.
