Specialized Functions Equip Radiologists to Read Cardiac Imaging Exams


August 30, 2006

Enabling radiologists to diagnose images generated by noninvasive cardiac scanning methods, several specialized functions — cardiac review and analysis, cardiac cage removal in 3-D imaging and cardiac calcium scoring — are being integrated into the next version of KODAK CARESTREAM PACS Software.

These functions, which equip radiologists to analyze cardiac CT imaging exams, will be commercially available in the newest version of KODAK PACS software scheduled for release this year. Cardiac review and analysis provides four-chamber and cross-sectional views of the heart axis and panoramic and cross-sectional views of cardiac vessels such as the left main artery (LMA), right coronary artery (RCA), left circumflex artery (LCX) and posterior descending artery.
