November 22, 2019 — Candelis, Inc. recently launched the Advanced Breast Imaging Workstation as an enhancement to its ImageGrid platform.
In additional to supporting mammography and tomosynthesis images from Hologic, GE, Siemens, Fuji, Planmed and Giotto, ImageGrid’s Advanced Breast Imaging Workstation supports viewing and analysis of 3-D breast ultrasound images acquired by GE, Siemens, Hitachi and iVu.
“ImageGrid has long served as the industry benchmark for mammography workflow. With the Advanced Breast Imaging Workstation, ImageGrid is now the best informatics platform in breast imaging,” said Robert Van Uitert, vice president of marketing. The Advanced Breast Imaging Workstation includes the following exciting new features.
3-D Breast Ultrasound Support
ImageGrid now provides support for 3D breast ultrasound images acquired by GE Invenia ABUS, Siemens Acuson ABVS, Hitachi and iVu Sophia with diagnostic tools for reading and interpretion. The updated breast imaging workstation offers superior image quality with tools for a more accurate and thorough diagnosis.
Enhanced Mammography Prefetch
The enhanced mammography prefetching tools further reduce the time required before studies can be read and eliminates all information that can cause a patient mismatch. The advanced features include:
- Retrieval of prior studies from multiple PACS systems
- Ensuring consistence between current and prior patient studies
- Delivery of prior studies to the workstation during non-peak hours
- Caching exams on the workstation to minimizing fetching activities during reading
- Prerendering prior exams for visualization resulting in quicker reading of studies
- Delivery of both current and prior exams simultaneously to workstation along with notification of availability for reading
“All of these added features are a huge improvement for breast imaging workflow. Better diagnostic tools and more efficient workflow processes will further allow imaging centers and clinics to focus on patient care,” added Van Uitert.
“Current Candelis mammography workstation customers with a service contract are entitled to our latest software release with these incredible new advanced breast imaging workstation features,” said Mazi Razmjoo, vice president of sales. “Our support staff will seamlessly transition our customers to this latest version upon their request,” he added.
Customers will be upgraded to the latest ImageGrid version with the innovative breast imaging features, based on a first-come, first-served basis.
