Prosolv, GE Cardiovascular Ultrasound Division Seal Affiliation Deal

March 30, 2009 - ProSolv CardioVascular, a FUJIFILM company, and GE Healthcare’s cardiovascular ultrasound unit announced a formal affiliation under which the companies will work collaboratively to develop an integrated solution aimed at improving workflow for echocardiography departments, and hope to expand user access to the advanced quantitative analysis packages currently offered through GE by offering workflow and diagnostic reporting efficiencies.

GE Healthcare currently provides an advanced analysis and quantification software module, EchoPAC, specifically designed for the analysis of raw data image sets from GE Healthcare cardiovascular ultrasound systems. Through the new affiliation, GE Healthcare and ProSolv CardioVascular intend to help make information more universally accessible by cardiologists and other clinical staff by working to assure that, no matter where the information is accessed, users have virtually the same level of advanced diagnostic functionality. In doing so, the companies believe users could benefit from a quicker diagnostic process.

“There is a definite need for more open access to data throughout cardiovascular departments and healthcare systems as a whole. By leveraging our vendor-neutral solution, we’ll aim to provide unlimited access to state of the art ultrasound advanced clinical applications, taking one more step forward on the quest to improve the vital exchange of healthcare information,” said Aaron Waitz, president and CEO, ProSolv CardioVascular.

Waitz said the company entered into a similar agreement with Philips to help build its software system into a vendor-neutral solution that will have better interoperability.

Automated medical imaging views using deep learning, artificial intelligence, Philips Epiq

GE, Siemens and Philips are among the echocardiography vendors that incorporate deep learning algorithms into its echo software to help automatically extract standard imaging views from 3-D ultrasound datasets. This is an example of the Philips Epiq system, which uses the vendor's Anatomical Intelligence software to define the anatomical structures and automatically display standard diagnostic views of the anatomy without human intervention. This can greatly speed workflow and reduce inter-operator variability.
