PALO ALTO, CA and BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2014) - Fovia, Inc., a world leader in volume rendering technology, and Visual Medica, a prominent Argentinean-based developer and provider of medical and diagnostic imaging solutions, today announced a collaboration to deliver innovative, cost-effective advanced visualization to the burgeoning Latin American market.

Latin America's numerous medical imaging sub-markets have their own unique requirements, including the challenge of balancing institution-specific economic goals and constraints with the growing need for upgraded, state-of-the-art imaging equipment and the increasing demand for advanced imaging procedures. Visual Medica has joined forces with Fovia to address these sometimes-conflicting objectives by developing advanced visualization products with the highest quality standards, while keeping such products accessible, agile and affordable.

Fovia's High Definition Volume Rendering® software provides unrivalled interactive rendering quality and performance, and its flexibility, scalability and memory efficiency facilitate the development of cost-effective solutions. Visual Medica's wide range of products, including PACS solutions, DICOM viewers, web platforms and teleradiology systems will be able to take full advantage of Fovia's CPU-based HDVR® for local, enterprise-wide and cloud-based visualization.

"With Latin America's increasing need to adapt to the rapidly-changing digital environment, we need partners with innovative, scalable and flexible technology," said Enrique Paniagua, Director of Visual Medica. "We are thrilled be able to offer Fovia's best-in-class imaging to our target markets."
