VisionSR is a medical software company that produces a simple, versatile, and powerful multimedia structured reporting solution, called ViSionTM, for image-based medical disciplines including diagnostic radiology, pathology, cardiology, gastroenterology, and dermatology. The ViSion client-server software captures key images from any computer display, records an expert's voice descriptions of those findings, tags the images with metadata using a comprehensive ontology, and generates a multimedia structured report. ViSion links related findings in a database to generate disease timelines for each site of disease, and it assembles these disease timelines a composite report so that a patient's entire medical history can be accessed from a single view.
David J. Vining, MD — Chief Executive Officer
David J. Vining, MD, is a board-certified diagnostic radiologist, inventor, and entrepreneur. He is credited with having created “virtual colonoscopy” in the early 1990's, which is a minimally invasive colorectal cancer screening technique that uses computed tomography (CT) scanning and 3D image reconstruction to look inside the body. Dr. Vining's expertise in structured reporting began in 1999 when he founded PointDx which was acquired by IDX in 2004. Dr. Vining recognized several deficiencies in his earlier approach, including the need to integrate reporting software with that of imaging vendors, and he has overcome those challenges with the ViSion technology.
Dr. Vining received a BS degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University ('83) and a MD from the LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport ('87). Dr. Vining served as the CEO of PointDx from 1999-2004 and has held clinical appointments at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine (1993-2001), the University of Maryland School Medicine (2005-2008), and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (2008-Present).
