Since its introduction in 2010, the 3D region-of-interest (ROI) operator has aided our users in quantification and volume estimation from their image data. The prerequisite of any quantification or volume estimation task is an accurate segmentation for the volume of interest. The 3D ROI tool’s combination of manual, semi-automated, and fully-automated segmentation routines provides a highly complete toolbox with an emphasis on accuracy and efficiency for the user.
On November 28, 2016, inviCRO officially released VivoQuant 3.0. The updated version includes an extensive upgrade to the Modeling operator for Tracer Kinetic Models, new tools for filing Electronic Case Report Forms (eCRFs), flexible data selectors throughout the software, and 3D ROI Tool improvements.
After a VivoScript has been run, it is often useful to organize its output in a single document that can be used for a quality control check or to present the results. This is especially helpful in compiling many results into one document–reporting tools can loop through a study with hundreds of datasets and compile their relevant results into a single document, saving you a lot of time. You may be familiar with VivoScript reporting tools that create PDF presentations or XLS spreadsheets, but did you know you can also generate Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations from VivoScript? Keep reading for an overview of how it works and a few examples of cool features that give you a lot of freedom to control formatting, hyperlinks, and more in the resulting presentations.
On November 13, 2015, inviCRO officially released VivoQuant 2.5. The updated version includes a brand new fully-flexible Multi View, with expanded and enhanced data viewing options. Data interaction has also been enhanced with an increase in size of the display window and added support for zooming/panning within an image. VQ 2.5 also supports the newly updated modeling tool with more models than previously included, as well as the addition of voxel-wise modeling for parametric map generation.
On February 25, 2015, inviCRO officially released VivoQuant 2.0. The new version included a large User Interface re-design, with new buttons, menus, and and a more workflow-oriented look and feel. Also hightlighted was the new RGB viewer for viewing 2D and 3D RGB data alongside the standard 3D data VQ users are used to.
On April 3, 2014, inviCRO officially released VivoQuant 1.23. Following the release, two webinar’s were held to review the new and improved features in VivoQuant 1.23. All materials covered and recordings of the webinars are available.
With the release of VivoQuant 1.23, new functionality has been added to facilitate iPACS communication within VivoScript. Users are now able to easily filter though entire iPACS projects easily and pick out the desired data sets in clean, simple scripts. The functionality has been written in VivoScript and included in every new install of VivoQuant 1.23 as ipacs.vqs, so implementing it within your VivoScrips is very easy.
At inviCRO we strive to deliver software in accordance to highest scientific and quality standards. As a consequence, testing our software has become an integral part of the development process. In particular we follow a continuous integration process that allows us to keep our software working at most times and to detect and fix bugs very quickly. Additionally, with test-driven development we are continuously expanding our testing library and improving the quality of our software one test at a time.
A new VivoScript will be available with the release of VivoQuant 1.23: the Onion Tool. This tool allows the user to select a Region of Interest that he or she has segmented, and perform layer-based analysis. The tool operates on any ROI present in the 3D ROI Tool, and is configurable to fit your specific analysis needs.
