MINNEAPOLIS, June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vital Images, Inc. ("Vital"), a Toshiba Medical Systems Group Company, is pleased to announce the global release of VitreaExtend™, an advanced visualization solution that supports up to three simultaneous users with high performance similar to Vital's advanced server-based solution. VitreaExtend meets the needs of organizations that want increased access to advanced visualization tools without a significant IT footprint.
VitreaExtend features the same easy-to-use toolset as Vital's flagship Vitrea software.

With access for multiple users, it helps free up scanner consoles, increasing efficiency and productivity. Dynamic licensing capabilities allow one walk-up and two remote users, or three remote users, depending on the individual needs of the facility.
"VitreaExtend responds to the needs of our customers who want a powerful advanced visualization solution that is simple to deploy and maintain," said Jim Litterer, General Manager at Vital Images, Inc.
