Agfa CV Suite Combines Cardio Images, Structured Reports

September 4, 2007 - Agfa HealthCare demonstrated at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2007 its new IMPAX Cardiovascular (CV) Suite, a system that integrates multi-lingual, multimodality image and reporting capabilities and provides access to a consolidated view of all cross-modality cardiology and radiology images within a single review station.

Built to satisfy the most demanding clinical workflow, IMPAX CV delivers innovative features, including tightly integrated structured reporting, vendor-neutrality, legacy equipment image management and secure global access to diagnostic data.

Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX CV provides an integrated view of patient data from a single point of access. This is designed to for multimodality cardiology environments, where clinicians need to connect with information from a variety of imaging equipment components already in place. Among the modalities, cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, noninvasive vascular, endovascular, rhythmology, cardiac CT, electrophysiology and stress ECG image and data management create a single integrated cardiovascular information solution to meet the needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities across the globe. To further the integration of readily accessible cardiovascular patient data with improvements in clinical workflow, the patient-centric architecture supports IMPAX Scheduling, a solution designed to optimize resource utilization.

According to the manufacturer, the typical cardiology department can benefit from IMPAX CV due to its multilingual reporting platform that supports procedure reporting with natural language generation query and statistical analysis modules and registry functionality for multiple European registries.
