Agfa Introduces IMPAX Cardiovascular Suite

September 5, 2007 - Agfa HealthCare, a provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow solutions and diagnostic imaging solutions, announced that it will demonstrate its new IMPAX Cardiovascular (CV) Suite at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2007 in Vienna.

This powerful solution suite now integrates multi-lingual, multi-modality image and reporting capabilities, a result of Agfa HealthCare's unique approach to image management and informatics. The IMPAX CV suite supports improved productivity by providing fast and robust 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 ideal for multi-modality 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, non-invasive 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 leading solution designed to optimize resource utilization.

The typical cardiology department can benefit from IMPAX CV due to its multi-lingual reporting platform that supports procedure reporting with natural language generation query and statistical analysis modules and registry functionality for multiple European registries. Hospital administrators will find value in the solution's integrated inventory management and the data mining and statistical analysis capabilities, developed to assist facilities in improving operating efficiencies.

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
