An example of workflow efficiencies in newer CVIS systems. This example from Philips IntelliSpace Cardiovascular, a cardiac PACS plus CVIS system, shows a patient timeline with icons to show various tests, exams or procedures in an easy to understand format. The cath lab cardiac diagram can be modified by the user with stents and degree of stenosis, which automatically flows text information into the report. #CVIS, Cardiac PACS, cardiology image and information system (CIIMS)
