The Intrinsic 3D visualization software enables earlier detection, less invasive surgeries, reduction in exploratory surgeries, less risk to patient and doctor, and lower medical costs.

Intrinsic’s product configuration consists of software installed on a stand-alone, “off-the-shelf” workstation providing fast, easy-to-use visualization, and image analysis. A future configuration will include a thin-client application, enabling a tablet-like device viewing experience.

Intrinsic’s technology allows the user to see directly through multiple types of tissue simultaneously in order to visualize the spatial relationships of different parts of the body. The technology doesn’t just provide a “slice” view. Rather, it provides an “inside out” experience within the volume of data, allowing the user to move quickly and easily through all tissue that might otherwise block the view.

Spectrum Cardio Workstation (SCW)

The Spectrum Cardio Workstation (SCW) has a remarkably small footprint for such a powerful machine! The software is agnostic of your institution’s CT scanner, with no change in protocols, you will be ready to explore your case studies in intimate detail and visualize procedures through a media that will seem second nature in no time at all.

The SCW consists of a compact PC tower or laptop, a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and 3D navigation joystick. The SCW will accept your CT DICOM data by removable media, such as a CD, or connect directly to your existing PACS.

Intrinsic Medical Imaging will have software installed on the hard drive of the SCW before you receive it. An Intrinsic Medical Imaging technician will place the system in its intended location and perform a series of installation diagnostics. When the system is ready for use, just load your studies and go.

Intrinsic Medical Imaging, a pioneer in trailblazing high performance 3D medical imaging software, today announced it has received FDA pre-market notification clearance for its groundbreaking IMI Spectrum 3D imaging workstation (K121023). The company’s next generation 3D capabilities will provide visualization and quantification tools designed to overcome errors, inconsistencies and challenges associated with analyzing images utilizing existing conventional 2D and 3D methods.

“Intrinsic provides revolutionary, advanced 3D visualization which could enable a virtual angioscopy of the inside of cardiac structures through a simple, noninvasive CT scan,” said Arie Blitz, MD, director, Heart Transplantation and Mechanical Circulatory Support, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio. “For example, we processed a patient’s standard 2D CT images using the IMI technology and saw thrombi in 3D previously undetected in 2D. This is amazing technology.”

Intrinsic uses uncompressed rendering techniques that preserve the integrity of the data from 2D to 3D while enabling the user to navigate in real-time, anywhere in the volume, while mitigating visual artifacts and creating a more natural and user-friendly environment. High-performance algorithms process more than 100 times more operations per second than existing 3D solutions, generating an order-of-magnitude improvement in spatial resolution and image detail over existing standards. The IMI Spectrum 3D image visualization platform provides clinicians with diagnostic, planning and treatment solutions to enhance clinical accuracy and speed with the goal of saving lives.

“Receipt of this clearance is a significant step for our company and we look forward to improving patient outcomes while reducing unnecessary healthcare expenditures through the introduction of the IMI Spectrum later this year,” said Jorey Chernett, CEO of Intrinsic Medical Imaging. “Engaging clinicians throughout the development process is core to our commercialization strategy and clinical feedback has been extremely positive on the potential of the IMI Spectrum technology. Intrinsic has attracted a highly accomplished team with deep domain expertise focused on revolutionizing 3D medical imaging.”
