TeraRecon thin client deployment

TeraRecon is a post-image acquisition 3D processing application which layers 2D images captured from MRIs and CTs to produce a 3D image that can be manipulated and used by a physician for diagnostic interpretation. TeraRecon was only available on two PCs, “fat clients”, prior to the purchase of the thin client application, which enabled the application to be used on PCs across the health system. The thin client annual cost is $50,910 lower than the fat client annual cost, and the project will break even in year 2. Initially Syngo Via was expected to be eliminated at an annual cost reduction of $39,990, but it will continue to be used for dual energy CT exams, specifically for metal artifact reduction
