September 3, 2020 — Based on its recent analysis of the global breast imaging workstation industry, Frost & Sullivan recognized Candelis, Inc. with the 2020 Global New Product Innovation Award for its Advanced Breast Imaging Enterprises Viewer. This breast imaging workstation incorporates unique optimization techniques for streamlining clinical workflows, enabling patient-centric direct scan visualization and interpretation, and enhancing the patient experience by delivering immediate results. Its pre-fetching, tag morphing, and multi-modal capabilities deliver unmatched data movement and routing speeds, giving radiologists access to all the information needed for a timely and accurate read. The Advanced Breast Imaging Enterprises Viewer supports reading of 2-D and 3-D mammography along with 2-D and 3-D breast ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT).
"Candelis launched the Advanced Breast Imaging Enterprise Viewer with its flagship ImageGrid platform, providing exceptional speed and multi-vendor viewing. It displays past and present mammography and tomosynthesis patient images from leading OEMs almost instantly, regardless of scan format," said Poornima Srinivasan, industry analyst. "With enhanced pre-fetching capabilities, hospitals can view all mammography and tomosynthesis exams from any radiologist workstation and they have the necessary prior exam data before the patient comes in for a breast examination."
Many competing mammography solutions require data transfer to each workstation, increasing the strain on the hospital's IT networks. Candelis’ Advanced Breast Imaging Enterprise Viewer, in contrast, moves the data only once to the ImageGrid PACS, minimizing data duplication sent through the network. Furthermore, provision of rapid results means if the radiologist feels the patient needs additional examinations, an ultrasound or biopsy can be performed during the same visit. As for the customers, the streamlined, optimized workflows enhance their overall hospital experience.
Candelis supports its customers whenever and wherever needed, either on-site or via phone-support teams in Southern California and Western EU. Beyond high-quality support services, Candelis commits to tailoring innovation to match industry needs. It partners with customers within the breast imaging space to identify optimization gaps and continuously improve its products. These customer-driven innovation methods have earned it expertise in the IT data movement workflow area and keep it at the forefront of innovation.
"The company currently has over 3,700 customers worldwide using its ImageGrid System and anticipates increased uptake of the solution due to the market shift towards tomosynthesis," noted Srinivasan. "Besides its installations in Latin America, Southeast Asia, Western EU, and Canada, Candelis is working with the Brazilian and Japanese governments to gain approval and widen its market reach. Its significant footprint, customer-focused growth strategies, and cutting-edge innovation are expected to help the company continue expanding its customer base and remain a dominant player in the global market."
