Animage’s Multi-Modality Solution Delivers HDVR®
Palo Alto and Pleasanton, California, January 31, 2013 — Fovia Inc., a global leader in advanced visualization, and Animage, LLC, an innovative developer and manufacturer of veterinary imaging equipment, today announced that Animage will enhance its product offering by integrating Fovia’s High Definition Volume Rendering® into Fidex, its unique, three-modality diagnostic imaging system.
Fidex combines computed tomography (CT), digital radiography (DR) and fluoroscopy to provide a cost-effective, small footprint solution, therefore making in-house 3D viable for veterinarians and animal researchers. Fovia’s CPU-based HDVR® enables Animage to offer “on-the-fly” advanced visualization to veterinarians and researchers on most major operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS), greatly expanding 3D imaging accessibility, flexibility and scalability in the veterinary field.
Fovia’s server-based architecture enables thin-client delivery of unrivaled image quality and performance anytime, anywhere. In the veterinary market, Fovia’s flagship products, HDVR® Connect and HDVR® Mobile, provide unprecedented advancement in diagnosis, treatment and pre-surgical planning. With HDVR, veterinarians have rapid access to highly detailed images, therefore enabling them to make quick, well-reasoned decisions. In cases where remote specialists are needed, Fovia’s unique architecture facilitates seamless, real-time collaboration.
“The level of detail that Fovia’s HDVR software provides allows exploration of structures never before seen in veterinary medicine,” said Horst Bruning, President and CEO of Animage. “With 3D imaging becoming increasingly important in our field, we are thrilled to be on the cutting-edge of veterinary clinical care and research by using Fovia’s best-in-class rendering.”
Ken Fineman, Chief Executive Officer of Fovia, stated, “We are excited to be working with a company that has put such extensive thought into the unique needs of their market. Fidex successfully addresses the need for a mutli-modality, cost-effective, small-footprint imaging solution for veterinary offices and research facilities.”
