This versatile GOP(R) technology combined with image processing expertise allows
ContextVision to continuously improve the quality of medical images around the world.

At ECR, ContextVision will demonstrate products including:

        - GOPiCE(R) US (3D/4D)- The industry's first ultrasound real-time
          three-dimensional filtering product, it enhances 3D ultrasound volumes by filtering
          images to remove speckle, noise and other artifacts, while simultaneously sharpening
          diagnostically significant structures. Volumetric acquisitions empowered by
          multi-dimensional image enhancement leads to faster and more accurate diagnosis.
        - Three New add-on modules for GOPView XR2Plus will be shown including
          Intelligent Exposure Index based on the relevant region of the image i.e. true tissue.
          ContextVision will also show its Defect Correct Library as well as Doctors Interface
          for end user image control.
        - GOPView(R) iRVUltra - ContextVision's second generation of image enhancement
          technology for interventional radiology has unprecedented success in reducing noise
          while enhancing fine structures and edges. This ultimately allows for significantly
          improved image quality while maintaining patient dose, or, alternatively, preserved
          image quality using a lower patient dose.

“Our ultra-fast algorithms for 3D/4D image enhancement allow doctors improved
diagnostic value in 2D planes as well as in 3D renderings,” said Anita Tollstadius,
ContextVision CEO. “These additional dimensions are essential to ultrasound examinations
because they decrease the risk of not having acquired the entire anatomy, as could be the
case with a 2D examination. With 3D, the whole anatomy can be acquired with one single
