NEWTON, Mass., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Rcadia Medical Imaging today announced that its COR Analyzer® System for the fully automated analysis of coronary CT angiography (cCTA) will be featured in five studies presented at poster sessions during the annual scientific meeting of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT), July 15-18, in Las Vegas.  SCCT is the international professional society representing physicians, scientists and technologists advocating for research, education and clinical excellence in the use of cardiovascular computed tomography.  

The COR Analyzer provides an immediate indication of significant coronary stenosis in suspected coronary artery disease patients. The studies to be presented describe the system's potential to speed clinical decision making, reduce observation time and improve workflow in emergency, radiology, and cardiology department settings. The studies include:

About the COR Analyzer System

The COR Analyzer System automatically provides - with no human interaction - an immediate indication of patients with suspected significant coronary artery disease. The COR Analyzer® System processes cCTA images and generates comprehensive results and corresponding reports within minutes. The system's algorithm determines the presence of significant lesions (50 percent or more stenosis) in the coronary arteries and visualizes the results through the use of detection marks to indicate the location of candidate lesions. The COR Analyzer utilizes images from 64-slice or higher CT machines.
