Cardiology imaging

Consolidate your cardiology imaging for increased review efficiency and improved collaboration

Reviewing the most common cardiovascular procedures from a single workstation helps you increase reading efficiency greatly. With a consolidated, enterprise imaging approach to cardiology, you also decrease the cost and complexity of your IT infrastructure, as well as getting a more comprehensive patient overview. What’s more, the patient care team can access patient information across clinical specialties, helping improve collaboration and clinical outcomes.

Reduce the need to move between solutions

Easily add cardiovascular examinations to your existing radiology PACS and get more out of it. When you use the same diagnostic viewing workstation and archive for radiology and cardiology exams, you reduce the need to move between different solutions—improving your efficiency and collaboration.

Cut costs and eliminate silos

Consolidate all your different applications and solutions to a single platform. When you have fewer parallel applications and solutions, you save money and cut down on IT administration. And if you put all your data in a single archive—instead of in scattered silos—you enable access to all procedures from anywhere.

Single point of access for better efficiency and outcomes

Get a better understanding of your patient by having access to prior examinations and other procedures. You don’t just get access to the patient history—you can instantly open and explore prior examinations without having to switch to another IT application. This single point of access to the complete patient record helps you improve both operational efficiency and clinical outcomes.

Easy access to the applications you need

Have best-of-breed quantification tools at your desk—all accessible from a single platform. Changing applications is easy, with the required tools no more than a fast, efficient, and intuitive click away.

No more CDs and USB drives

Sharing or collaborating with others around patients’ cardiology images—within your enterprise or even with other institutions—doesn’t have to be time-consuming and costly. With an efficient and secure solution for image exchange, you remove the need for bulky, slow, and expensive alternatives, such as CDs and USB drives. You get quick access to specialists for efficient external readings and second opinions, which can shorten waiting times for patients. Plus, you minimize the risk of security breaches and patient integrity violations

More efficient MDT meetings

Cardiology plays a key role in multidisciplinary team meetings where medical staff from different specialties meet to discuss complex cases pre and post treatment. With instant access to cardiovascular images, side by side with radiology or other images, you can have more efficient discussions, and are better able to give detailed descriptions of findings. All images are also easily available if unplanned cases are added to the discussion during the actual meeting.
