(drum roll) Virtual Colonoscopy!

Steve Aylward, General Manager for Commercial Health & Life Sciences at Microsoft US with Patrick Samona, Vectorform’s Director of Health Solutions.

To make colon cancer screening more broadly accessible and cost-effective, the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) partnered with Vectorform, Microsoft and Intel to develop the Virtual Colonoscopy (VC) Viewer, a multi-touch, HPC-cloud-based virtual colonoscopy viewer that allows physicians to interact with a 3-D rendering of a patient’s colon. In 2010 VC won top honors at RSNA, and last week we were proud to accept the 2012 Microsoft Health Users Group Innovation Award at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition.

Congratulations to everyone involved on your latest achievement!
