Vital intruduces Vitrea® 7

MINNEAPOLIS, June 22, 2016

Vital Images, Inc. (Vital), a Minneapolis-based advanced medical imaging and informatics company, recently launched version 7 of its Vitrea advanced visualization software. This innovative, application-based platform delivers full-powered solutions for 2D, 3D and 4D medical imaging and comprehensive user workflows, including CT, MR and XA applications. Vitrea software is one of several solutions Vital will feature at the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) annual meeting (booth 207), June 23-26 in Orlando, Fla.

“We are excited to launch the latest version of Vitrea advanced visualization,” says Jim Litterer, CEO of Vital Images. “With this release, clinicians have access to enhanced diagnostic and workflow tools to help improve patient outcomes and departmental efficiencies.”


With several new applications and unified, scalable deployment options, Vitrea software empowers CMIOs and their clinicians to grow their applications based on current and future needs. The flexibility of partner applications being available on all deployments and content personalization built into Vitrea software can help CMIOs gain more rapid physician adoption.

Vital also streamlined the user interface and integration of new applications to ensure consistent user experience across all modalities: CT/MR/XA/PET/SPECT. By providing advanced clinical tools within a uniform user interface, Vitrea software enables physicians to have meaningful interactions wherever they are.


“The standardized platform of Vitrea software provides seamless integration of ‘best of breed’ partner applications, including a unified reporting database,” says Steve Andersen, general manager, AV and EVP at Vital Images. “Its scalable architecture and comprehensive solution-set, coupled with its proven ease of use and Vital’s world-class service, offer clinicians superior performance and flexibility.”

At SCCT, Vital will showcase a Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D Printer, which is able to physically replicate the anatomy using data from an imaging study. Vitrea software takes patient scans and converts them into STL files for direct use with a 3D printer. A range of anatomical models from demonstration patient studies will be on display as well. Many of these models were 3D printed using Stratasys’ Connex line of 3D printers that enables simultaneous multi-material, multi-color 3D prints to mimic both the appearance and texture of patient anatomy.
