TeraRecon Highlights the Rapid Adoption of iNtuition at RSNA 2009

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - November 30, 2009) - TeraRecon, Inc. (, global leader in advanced visualization and decision support solutions for medical imaging, is highlighting the selection and deployment of its iNtuition™ advanced visualization software by many of North America's largest healthcare enterprises, innovative physician practices and renowned luminary institutions at the 95th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at McCormick Place, Chicago IL. Testimonials from some of the hundreds of customers who have selected iNtuition are provided below.

"We are now routinely installing iNtuition solutions which cover tens of hospitals each. Several projects are underway which are an order of magnitude larger. As an example, iNtuition advanced visualization tools are being integrated into a PACS system which supports the majority of covered lives in an entire Canadian province. The feedback that we have received from our customers speaks for itself. The rapid adoption of iNtuition throughout the course of 2009 provides clear evidence that iNtuition is in a class of its own as a fully-featured and scalable enterprise advanced visualization solution," explained Jeff Sorenson, TeraRecon Vice President of Sales, USA and Canada.

Customer Testimonials

Centura Health
Jeffrey Moulton, MD, Radiologist

"We decided to perform an extensive internal trial of the available thin-client advanced visualization solutions to determine which ones performed as advertised and which was the best in real-life practice. Each of these vendors agreed to install their thin-client solution on our network, with PACS integration, for a 45-day trial under real-time conditions. The TeraRecon iNtuition product was the clear winner. The product worked almost flawlessly on our network and integrated very well with our PACS. The automation of many advanced rendering functions is tremendously helpful in speeding up our workflow. All of the features we need on a regular basis were very easy to access and to use. No other product came close in terms of the combination of power, image quality, and ease of use."
