Nuclear Cardiology Opens 4D Door to Nuclear SPECT


September 10, 2007

September 6, 2007 — ProSolv CardioVascular, a FUJIFILM company (ProSolv), announced at the 12th Annual Scientific Session of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) that it has further enhanced its CardioVascular Image and Information Systems (CVIIS) product line with the integration of Corridor4DM (previously known as 4DM-SPECT) capabilities, allowing clinicians to access 4DM review, analysis and quantification tools from any ProSolv CardioVascular workstation.

The enhancement enables nuclear cardiology physicians and technologists to do reporting and image management at reportedly any location, streamlining workflow and improving productivity.

ProSolv’s enhanced nuclear cardiology capabilities are a result of the integration of Corridor4DM for Nuclear SPECT, a cardiac analysis software suite from INVIA Medical Imaging Solutions into the ProSolv CardioVascular software. Because ProSolv offers a vendor- and hardware-neutral, software-only solution, the integration provides a single, intuitive environment within which the user can process and review all cardiac emission computed tomographic (ECT) perfusion studies. The studies can be accessed from any ProSolv workstation with a single logon.

In addition to accessing the complete history of cardiac studies across modalities, the integration also provides access to all reporting information, making the process more efficient from diagnosis through billing. ProSolv’s structured reporting capabilities will include default templates that follow the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) guidelines and standards set forth by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL). Additionally, with ProSolv’s database mining, initial and on-going statistical reporting required for accreditation may be less time consuming. Correlation requirements for nuclear cardiology – when used in conjunction with the entire portfolio of ProSolv multi-modality reporting modules – are also easy to gather and ensured to be accurate.

Side-by-side image comparison, the ability to view up to four studies at one time (exclusive of modality) and quality assurance displays during processing and image interpretations are other features of ProSolv 4DM.
