Fovia, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based visualization company, recently announced the launch of F.A.S.T. Cloud Development, a major addition to their XStream HDVR Software Development Kit (SDK) Suite. Fovia is a world leader in advanced visualization and is known for developing High Definition Volume Rendering (HDVR) and XStream HDVR, which is typically used by OEMs and researchers from qualified universities. HDVR is a CPU-based, advanced visualization platform that allows its partners in a wide range of fields to deliver unparalleled quality, performance and scalability to their customers.
F.A.S.T. Cloud Development is a versatile SDK used for developing cloud-based visualization products. From the medical industry to paleopathology, it’s a solution for companies that want to quickly develop new cloud‑based imaging applications as well as for those that want to migrate their existing product lines to the cloud. By avoiding the need to download Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) datasets, it enables highly efficient cloud delivery, even for large CT and MR volumetric datasets, as well as for large 2D studies such as echocardiography, mammography and tomosynthesis. F.A.S.T. Cloud Development features a proprietary server-side rendering architecture and optimized network protocols, which helps to reduce latency and bandwidth limitations, and ultimately allows images to be easily served directly from the cloud.
“I am excited to be launching our new cloud platform at RSNA. F.A.S.T.Cloud Development includes synchronization across different DICOM series that will allow our partners to rapidly implement fully integrated 2D, MPR and 3D into their product portfolios,” said David Wilkins, Vice President of Business Development. “Any sector that benefits from high performance and high quality cloud-based visualization—PACS, EHR, surgical navigation, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing—will see that F.A.S.T.Cloud Development is a game changer. I’m looking forward to creating products with companies that recognize the long-term benefit of our zero-footprint, feature-rich, cloud solution.”
Development of local, enterprise-wide and remote volumetric rendering workflows is the primary function of Fovia’s XStreamHDVR SDK Suite, and it’s complemented by their XStream HDVR WebSDK, which enables developers to write advanced visualization applications one time through a client-facing interface and then distribute the applications across any web-enabled device.
Companies using Fovia’s innovative and flexible SDKs are able to streamline development strategies and take their proprietary workflows to market faster and more efficiently than before. XStream HDVR delivers high fidelity 2D, 3D and 4D real-time rendering and can be used with Fovia’s 3D printing SDK, RapidPrint – a tool for companies that require 3D printing from radiology images, industrial scans or other volumetric data, and want the convenience of an integrated solution.
According to Fovia’s website, RapidPrint provides quick-edit volume printing capabilities for use in medical applications, educational applications, and in various other vertical markets (e.g., dental, industrial). Some additional benefits of RapidPrint include improving patient outcomes, lowering costs and faster development. This type of imaging software could be beneficial for hospitals like the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, which recently 3D printed a patient specific model of a tibia for a complex surgery.
All 3D printing processes require an imaging component to get started, which can determine the efficiency and quality of the 3D printing workflow. RapidPrint not only includes Fovia’s high quality imaging, but also helps optimize DICOM-to-print workflows by reducing steps, saving time and minimizing errors. Using RapidPrint as the platform for DICOM 3D print products will help accelerate innovation and increase user adoption.
RapidPrint provides functionality to convert all or a portion of a dataset to a polygon mesh for printing. It also provides OEMs the advanced development tools needed to extract, manipulate, visualize, optimize and save vertex-based objects—all within one application. RapidPrint allows polygon-based mesh objects to be dynamically constructed for maximum flexibility.
F.A.S.T. Cloud demonstrations have been ongoing this week at the 103rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.
