GE Launches Ultrasound Data, Image Management System for Vascular Reporting

 

July 12, 2007

GE Healthcare introduced its ViewPoint Vascular comprehensive ultrasound data management solution for vascular labs at the Society of Vascular Surgeons (SVS)/Society of Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) annual meeting in Baltimore, MD.

ViewPoint Vascular combines reporting and image archiving with an innovative database technology that speeds report creation, while capturing data for statistical analysis. An integrated DICOM worklist simplifies the patient exam. The system transfers measurements and images from multivendor ultrasound machines using DICOM SR. This system offers options for HL7 and DICOM interfaces to EMR, HIS and PACS, allowing vascular labs to reduce or eliminate paper and videotape documentation for ultrasound.

ViewPoint Vascular is designed to enable users to create quick and accurate structured reports for each study, thereby streamlining their documentation process. Physicians can review electronic reports with integrated images and diagrams before electronically signing a final report. The integrated LOGIQworks FX plug-in to ViewPoint Vascular allows for advanced ultrasound image review and post-processing.
